18 Beautiful Ways to Decorate With Succulents
Now that you are pumped for decorating with succulents, I wanted to share a few tips to help you care for them. They really don’t take a ton of effort, but there are some things you should know.
- They need sunlight to survive. Succulents only need around 6 hours of sunlight, but it’s important to make sure they get enough. You’ll need to rotate them often so they don’t get too much sun in one spot.
- Water them the right way. During the warmer months, they’ll need a lot more water than in the cooler temperatures. So be sure to give them enough during the heat and cut back during the cold.
- Drainage is important. The containers you use need to have drainage so the succulents’ roots don’t rot and the soil doesn’t become waterlogged. Using a succulent potting mix can help.
Now, you are ready to start decorating with these succulent container ideas!
