Desert cacti, forest cacti, and succulents can all be grown together. They make stunning displays for your houseplant collection. They don’t take a lot of care, but you still need to know what they like and need.
Also to know is, how do you make a cactus and succulent garden?
Beside above, how do I make an outdoor succulent garden?
Remove dead stems and offsets during the care of succulent garden plants. An offset is easy to start as a completely new plant. Put offsets in a well-drained potting mix and care for them until the roots are full and healthy, then plant them in a new area of the garden.
Is it bad to plant succulents together?
You can definitely plant succulents very close together and they will be just fine. When planting succulents close together they grow more slowly so they maintain the original design of the arrangement better. It can be trickier to water them when they are close together.
Planting Companions with Succulents
Allow them to trail among taller succulents like aloe and agave. Ornamental grasses, often with autumn blooms and interest through winter, are appropriate companion plants for succulents. Numerous varieties exist that have similar maintenance requirements as many succulent plants.
Mulch will help protect soil from extreme weather, from frost to heatwaves. If soil is left exposed with nothing to protect it on a hot day, it will become hot and dry, but even a thin layer of mulch covering the soil will help keep soil cool so succulents can get through the hotter weather.
