Pot o’ Succulents

For some reason I’ve become infatuated with succulents lately and had my mind set on potting some this weekend.  After enjoying the sun at the beach, I headed to a few spots around Mt. Pleasant to get what I needed and make my pot.

Pot of Succulents

What you’ll need:

  • Succulents
  • Pot — metal, clay, concrete..
  • Potting soil
  • Gravel like material

I heard Lowe’s had some cheap succulents, but I was pretty disappointed with their supply, so I headed down the street to Abide-a-while and spent ten minutes deciding on the ones I wanted.  I ended up with 4 different varieties, yet  couldn’t tell you their names.  Also, instead of true gravel, I went with some crushed shells — shocker.

This is another easy one… Place the succulents in the pot and fill the rest ~3/4 the way full with soil.  Fill in the top with the gravel / crushed shells and spread across evenly.

Voila, you have a cute lil pot of succulents!  The best part: you barely have to water them and supposedly they’re very hard to kill.  I think I’ll like these lil guys..
