Why buy succulent plant pots?

If you want to spruce up your space with some lively green plants but don’t have the know-how to keep most plants alive, succulents are a great choice. Succulents don’t have deep root systems and need quick drainage. So regular plant pots usually won’t do the job correctly. Plus, succulent plant pots can add a touch of color, class, or even whimsy to your space.

What should you consider in succulent plant pots?

  • Size: You want enough room for your succulents to grow, but you don’t want to give them too much space, or the roots will outgrow the flower. If you have a small succulent, say 3 inches in diameter, you won’t need a pot more than 3.5 inches in diameter if you’re planting it alone. If you’re planting your succulents together, leave them a little space, but not too much, to spread and grow.
  • Drainage: Succulent plant pots need to have adequate drainage. If you find a pot that you love and it doesn’t have holes, drill some. But a good succulent plant pot should have drainage holes to prevent mold growth.
  • Style: The sky’s the limit when it comes to the syle of succulent plant pots. Since succulent plant pots come in a variety of shapes, designs, and materials, you’ll have plenty of options to decide what’s right for you.

What are some tips for growing succulents?

As with all plants, you need to make sure they have the appropriate amount of sunlight and water. Succulents should have at least six hours of sun. Find a good spot in your home to keep them so that they’ll get the light they need. You want to make sure you don’t overwater your succulents. They don’t need as much as other types of plants. That doesn’t mean that they don’t need any, though. You should water them just when you notice the soil is fully dry, which could be once a week or once every other week, depending on the season, the humidity, and the size of the pot.
