The best pots for succulents are made from terracotta or ceramic. Both of these materials are breathable, which encourages proper water drainage and air circulation. Just remember that both terracotta and ceramic are heavy, especially once you add soil and plants.
Subsequently, what can I use as succulent pots?
But a popular trend right now is to use soup spoons or ladles as hanging planters for succulents. You would think that a ladle would be too small to house a plant, but small succulents seem to grow in them just fine.
Likewise, people ask, what is the rarest succulent plant?
This makes the Discocactus subterraneo-proliferans the rarest succulent in the world. This particular Discocactus is native to one region in Brazil and is nearly extinct because its natural habitat was cleared and plowed for small-scale agriculture and cattle ranching.
Do succulents outgrow their pots?
While succulents are pretty slow growers, they will eventually outgrow the pot they are in and even need some maintenance on a regular basis.
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.
Succulents do not like to sit in wet soil for very long, therefore they need a well draining soil. The best soil for succulents allows for fast air and water exchange in the root system of the plant. What I like to use is a combination of cactus potting mix and perlite. The perlite is for better drainage and aeration.
Place a few of the pebbles in the bottom of the tea cup. This is important so that there is a bit of drainage since there is no hole in the bottom of the cup. Then just fill with potting soil and add your succulent. The great thing about succulents is they are really hard to kill!
