How to Rehab Your Succulents

Succulents 1

I am a huge fan of succulents! It makes me so happy to see how popular they have become these past few years.

The succulents I am using today have been sitting in my sunroom for a while now. I water them maybe once every 3 weeks, but have neglected them other than that. Today, all that changes! I will be giving them my full attention as I show you How to Rehab Your Succulents.

Directions:
1. Choose a colorful container. Succulents are rich in texture and pair nicely with bright, bold containers. I found this strawberry jar at Marshall’s for $15.

2. Fill your container with a mixture of rocks, sand, and potting soil. They need plenty of drainage.

3. When choosing your succulents you want your selection to vary in color, texture, and height. I love a chartreuse colored succulent. It makes the entire container pop!

4. Stuff ‘n’ shove! Nestle each succulent into its own little cubby hole.

5. Plant your tallest succulents on top and your trailing succulents on the side.

Maintenance:
1. They need to be placed in full sunlight! Always keep them out of the cold.
2. Water once every 2-3 weeks.

I love all the fun succulent names–Agave, Seneccio Blue Fingers, Angelina Sedum–the list goes on and on! Don’t worry yourselves with remembering all the names, though. Just have fun playing with all the different textures and colors. There are certainly plenty to choose from!
