Would you agree that succulents are some of the prettiest little plants you can grow? I seriously love them! Luckily, they take well to a variety of succulent pots and are very easy to care for. Today on Bless My Weeds, we’re talking about succulent pots. Stick around while I show you some succulent pots you are sure to adore as much as the succulents they house.
Just because succulents are fairly easy to care for, doesn’t mean that they will do well in any sort of pot you choose. They actually have some preference, and if you adhere to those preferences, your succulents will be as happy as possible. So what should you look for in a succulent pot?
- Pick a succulent pot with a drainage hole! A drainage hole makes watering your succulents tons easier, and your succulents happier. If you want to cut down on the amount of soil that can fall through the hole, cover it with mesh tape and that’ll do the trick.
- The very best material for your succulent pot is ceramic or terra cotta. The reason is because both of these materials are breathable and help support a happy succulent. The downside to ceramic and terra cotta is their weight. If you choose a large pot, be careful about the spot where you put it. After you fill it with soil and succulents, it will be even harder to move around.
- Be careful with metal pots. They tend to rust after awhile, and the rust is unhealthy for succulents.
- Surprisingly, too much space can actually inhibit the growth of your succulent. If you plant one two-inch succulent, you should choose a pot that is about 2.5″ in diameter. If you plant a group of succulents in one pot, choose a pot that allows just a bit of room around each individual plant.
Now here’s a couple of my favorite succulent pots:
These small ceramic succulent pots are about 2.75″ in diameter, and have one small drainage hole in the bottom. The best part for me is that they resemble adorable little owls! You’ll find this set of six for under $16 at Amazon.
This 6′ round ceramic succulent pot is perfect for a small grouping of succulents. There is a small drainage hole, and the pot rests on a bamboo tray. This one is stylish enough for any décor!
