If you’ve never heard of this DIY project before, it might sound a little weird! 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.
Correspondingly, do succulents need deep or shallow pots?
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.
Additionally, how do you organize a succulent planter?
Do you put rocks in the bottom of a planter for succulents?
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.
Mini succulents can stay in small pots anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, or even years. … Simply take it out of the pot and repot in a larger container. If you don’t feel like repotting the entire plant, you can trim the plant to keep it small and take little pieces to propagate and grow elsewhere.
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.
Yes, succulents can definitely survive and even thrive in pots without holes. It all depends on how you care for the plants.
Any type of all purpose potting soil for indoor plants will work as the base to make your own succulent soil. Use whatever you have on hand (as long as it’s fresh, sterile potting soil). … Succulents need a well draining potting soil, not one that holds moisture.
