Avoid pots that are too tall or deep because of the amount of soil they contain. … You want enough room for the taproot to grow, but not so much room that the soil won’t dry out. Succulents and cacti generally prefer shallower containers, which dry out more quickly, resulting in healthier and happier plants.
Just so, do succulents like big pots?
Your succulent may survive in a large pot, but such space does not encourage healthy growth. Since large pots have much room for the roots, it does not allow the succulent to fill the plant container with roots.
Also, should succulents be in small pots?
As a general rule, I recommend leaving about a half-inch of space between your succulents and the edge of the pot, so they’ll have a little room to spread and grow. Too much space can actually prevent a succulent from growing much larger, because the roots spread out before the succulent has time to catch up.
Do succulents like to be crowded?
As a rule, succulent plants do not mind crowding whether the plants are grouped in one container or are alone and fully filled out in the container. Transplanting a plant that has filled its container will generally allow the plant to experience a new spurt of growth.
Mason jars are a perfect planter for fun and quirky succulents. These drought-tolerant beauties come in so many varietals, gem-colors and sizes. Succulents are incredibly low maintenance and easy for practically anyone to care for (with a few exclusions).
