Succulents are perfect for small container gardens. They look beautiful on porches, patios and even in flower beds.
They love exposure to the sun. Most varieties of Succulents need at least 4-6 hours of daily indirect sunlight each day.
After planting, it is time to give the plants a good soak of water. The potting soil is very dry and will require an ample amount of water in the beginning. Water the soil when it becomes dry.
Small container gardens make wonderful gifts for a bridal shower, a new home, friend’s birthday, or Mother’s Day.
