Are you a plant-lover who doesn’t quite have the greenest thumb? An indoor succulent garden might be the perfect answer for you! Succulents are one of the easiest varieties to care for as they typically thrive in warm, dry environments and retain water well. They are very forgiving and don’t mind if you forget to tend to them every once in a while, which makes them ideal for the low-maintenance plant mom. And they are such a cute addition to your office, kitchen, bedroom, or anywhere you need a little pop of green.
You might already have a few succulents peppered around your house, or maybe you’ve been itching to add some to your decor. Either way, these indoor succulent planters are the perfect DIY for any succulent enthusiast! Find out how, in just a few minutes time, you can create sweet arrangements of succulents ready to place anywhere in your home thirsting for a fresh summer look!
Indoor succulent garden SUPPLIES:
- Several Succulents (in a variety of your choice)
- Containers (I chose a shallow bowl and a hanging planter)
- Well-draining Potting Mix, specifically for succulents (or a mix of 3 parts soil, 2 parts coarse sand, 1 part perlite)
- Small Stones
1. Place a handful of stones in the base of the container. These will help with drainage at the bottom of the soil, as well as allow more air to get to the plant’s roots, which leads to a happy plant.
2. Fill your container with soil. Be careful not to pack the soil down too tightly, as the roots need to be able to settle in and expand as they grow.
3. This is the fun part! Arrange the succulents in the soil. You can use several varieties positioned around each other for a fun dynamic look, or you can try several of the same type together in your planter. Have fun with this step and be creative with your composition!
4. Add extra stones on top of the soil around the plants for additional decoration if desired.
5. Soak the soil with water to make sure your plants are well hydrated. Succulents don’t need constant watering, so be sure to let the soil dry completely before watering again.
