Likewise, how do you make a simple succulent arrangement?
Then, what to do with mini succulents?
Most miniature succulents are baby plants or cuttings which haven’t achieved their full size. They can be planted on their own or with other plants. They can also be glued or wired onto whatever arrangement is being used, be it a wreath arrangement, a wall art, a wood planter, etc.
How do you arrange succulents beautifully?
Place your biggest succulent in the middle. Dig a hole with your fingers and place the plant’s roots and stem into the hole, then surround the plant underneath with soil. Try to keep the roots on all of the plants if you can, as this will help them begin to flourish in their new home quickly.
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.
Make Sure Your Succulents Get Enough Light
Succulents love light and need about six hours of sun per day, depending on the type of succulent. Newly planted succulents can scorch in direct sunlight, so you may need to gradually introduce them to full sun exposure or provide shade with a sheer curtain.
A top dressing for succulents is a layer of inorganic matter like pebbles, gravel, crushed rock or crushed seashells applied in an even layer over the top of the soil after the plants are in place. A succulent’s top dressing completely covers the soil to a depth of about a 1/3 inch, and is left in place.
Unglazed porous material like a concrete bowl or terra cotta is easiest as the bowl will absorb a small amount of water. Planting succulents in a glass bowl is totally possible…just be extra careful about not overwatering.
Succulents need good draining soil. … The container you are planting in should have a drainage hole or you can put a layer of crushed rock on the bottom of your container before you put in your planting medium. Gravel or small pebbles spread on top of the soil can be very decorative.
