You want to have plants indoor but do not think you have a green thumb. Well friend, try growing succulent plants for indoors.
Believe me when I say that they are super easy to grow. You don’t have to fret if you forget to water them one week.
Succulents thrive in dry air and warm temperatures. They have water-storing tissues that allow them to store up water and thrive dry areas including the inside of a home.
The plants need only little attending to and water occasionally. You will find so many different varies of succulents for indoors at your local nurseries.
I found these great containers that are 4″ in diameter. They are perfect for succulents.
I love all of the different patterns in blue and white. These succulent planters come in a set of 4.
I am using my favorite Miracle Growing Potting Soil in each of these planters.
I filled it up and packed the soil around the inside sides but left an area in the center for the plant. You can see in the photo below.
Then I will break up the roots and add the plant. Carefully, you need to add the potting soil around the plant. Succulents are a little fragile and you can easily break the stems/leaves. Be sure to handle the succulents with care to keep your plant in tack.
Whenever I am transplanting my plants, it is good to add some plant food to the water. It will help give the plant extra nutrients and help it thrive.
Do not over water succulents! You will want to put enough water to dampen the top layer of the soil. It is important not to over water these particular types of plants. You need to let the soil dry out between watering. If not, the plant will rot. It is best to just dampen the soil to avoid over watering. Also, you do not need to water succulents every week. I tend to water them every other week and they are thriving just great especially my Jade plants.
Now it’s time to place you succulents in a good place. I have these planters in my kitchen window. How beautiful would one of these planters look on a nightstand or a side table. It would be perfect on a coffee table on top of some stacked books.
I love how they turned out!
