One may also ask, are there trailing succulents?
Trailing succulents spill bountifully from beds, containers, and hanging pots, creating a lush cascade that adds height to a planting. The varieties in this category grow and trail at different rates, but all propagate readily from stem cuttings.
Just so, how do you care for a trailing succulent?
Like other succulent plants, they need a well draining soil. Established plants need less water than younger plants. Water only when the soil is dry, but do not let the soil dry out completely. They need bright but indirect sunlight and need to be protected from intense afternoon sun.
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.
Succulents require good soil drainage to perform their best, and hanging baskets with coco-fiber or sphagnum moss liners are perfect to provide that drainage. … And, as long as you plant them in a gritty potting mix, which is best for succulents, the plants will thrive.
The short answer is yes! They thrive in sunny locations with warm, dry climates and can tolerate some neglect, so growing succulents outdoors is a great option. Grow succulents in-ground, in pots, or tuck them away in unexpected planting spots.
Wire baskets are a great option because they allow your succulents to drain properly every time you water them.
