DIY Succulent Arrangements


  • Soil- As long as your pot has proper drainage, anything you have laying around will work. My go-to when I have nothing left in my nursery pots is Kellogg Patio Plus

  • Pick your starting point, left or right of center. Because the plants used in this arrangement are around the same size you don’t have to be too picky.

  • Succulents like to be packed together tight! This makes for beautifully knit together arrangements with future little offsets fighting for their space amongst the other succulents.

  • Working with cuttings is a lifesaver when planting close together! It also helps slow down the growth, keeping your arrangement fresher, longer. Avoid watering fresh cuttings for about a week. That way they are able to callus and you don’t have to worry about root rot.

  • Fill in every hole possible! There is nothing more gross than seeing dirt in your arrangement. If you don’t have enough plants, you can get top dressing from your local rock yard or Pea Pebbles from home improvement stores. Both options are inexpensive

  • Make sure to have a variety of textures and colors that play off one another for a party-stopping arrangement.

  • Important note- typically, awesome succulent varieties like these can only tolerate morning sun in warmer climates. If you see sunburn starting to form, provide protection and maybe an extra drink during the week to make their leave supple. Be careful to avoid over-watering because they will get pissed at you and DIE
