We’ve had another rainy day. The wet weather makes it difficult to be in the garden so I’ve kept busy inside. My indoor plants (finally) got some attention and I put together a miniature succulent garden.

I often use a small Kalanchoe in my arrangements. They bring a pop of colors that’s hard to get with succulents alone.

The Kalanchoe is back-planted with a Croton, which isn’t a succulent. Since it’s an ordinary house plant it needs more water. To make sure it gets the right amount and at the same time keep the low water succulents happy, I planted it in a separate pot. Before watering, I pop the small pot up, water it separately and that put it back in place.

A tip for adding house plants into low water succulent arrangements is to plant them in a separate pot.
