Another weekend with dull weather – another succulent arrangement. This time I used a pretty bonsai pot at the local garden center. I chose succulents that go well with the color of the pot – concrete grey with touches of red.
Succulents need good drainage. That means letting water rinse quickly. Here’s how you keep them happy:
- Use a container with drainage whole. My container didn’t have holes so used a regular drill to make two – one on each side of the pot.
- Use succulent or cacti potting soil. It’s basically potting soil with sand and grit that allows quick drainage.
- Water moderately, especially during the winter months. Every 10-14 days is usually enough.
