You don’t have to be blessed with a green thumb to own and care for succulents. These fleshy, softly colored plants don’t need much attention at all — just a bit of water every once in awhile and lots of sunlight. Plus, they look gorgeous in just about anything you put them in. For our mini succulent arrangements today, we’re repurposing our Side Dish the Details Bowl Set.
Care Tips for Your Succulent Arrangements:
How To Arrange Succulents:
You’ll need loose soil, rocks (decorative optional, but definitely regular rocks), planters, and a variety of succulents that require similar amounts of water/sunlight. Since our dishes were very small (2.5 inches in height, 4.25 inches in diameter), we chose very tiny plants sourced from a local urban garden.
Place a thin layer of rocks at the bottom of each dish. This will help with drainage and prevent root rot. Next, add dry, loose soil on top of the rocks. You can mix it with a little sand for better drainage, as well.
Gently pull your succulents from their plastic containers and break up the soil. Then, begin arranging however you desire. We recommend starting by planting one bigger succulent in each container and adding smaller succulents around it.
After you’ve finished arranging your succulents, place soil around them to help prop them up and fill in any holes.
Finally, if you want, you can top the soil with decorative rocks.
