Use a lightweight, gravel-rich potting medium like Hoffman’s Organic Cactus and Succulent Soil Mix, available from Amazon. Choose pots with holes in the bottom, and for those without, add one-third pea gravel before adding potting mix.
Regarding this, what is the best way to display succulents?
For a more refined look plant the succulents into vintage teacups or silver goblets, and for a rustic touch take wooden planters. Create a wall of planters, make a stand or suspend them to the ceiling giving a slight boho feel to the space.
Correspondingly, how do you make a small succulent planter?
Are shallow pots better for succulents?
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.
Plastic does not insulate well and does not tend to stand up to extreme temperatures well either. Succulents planted in plastic pots and exposed to extreme temperatures are more likely to suffer the ill effects of the cold or heat than those planted in terracotta pots.
