Likewise, people ask, how do you make a Bunnings succulent bowl?
Also know, do succulents do better in pots or in the ground?
All succulents and cacti need adequate drainage in order to prevent them from developing root rot.

Creating a succulent bowl is really easy. First fill a large terra cotta bowl with potting soil. Because succulents hate wet soil look for a mix that incorporates perlite or sand to facilitate drainage. Then, make a hole in the center of the container and drop in your tallest succulent.
Yes, succulents can definitely survive and even thrive in pots without holes. It all depends on how you care for the plants.
Concrete planters are porous so water can evaporate quickly, making them the perfect pot material for cacti and succulents. It’s important that they have drainage holes as well. Concrete planters are durable and great at insulating plants against sudden temperature fluctuations.
