OINK. Couldn’t resist. These modern garden pots are a fun addition to your planter collection. It has no drainage hole but this problem can be counteracted by adding a shallow layer of gravel for drainage below the soil and taking care not to overwater it.
You have a plant pot, now what? You want to get yourself a plant!
I tend towards succulents because succulents rule! Most grow slowly which I like because they won’t outgrow my favorite pot too quickly. There’s no Rock Star succulent, they all equally rule. I generally pick my plant based on its color and texture and what is going to look best in my planter. Some of my all time favorites are Echeveria Elegance, Panda Plant, Aloe, Burro’s Tail, Haworthia, Agave
Now You want to get it into the planter, and this is how you’ll be able to do it:
1. Having a pot with a drainage hole will save you a large number of work. If your pot doesn’t have a drainage hole it would be best to start with a layer of drainage rock on the bottom, then a layer of horticultural charcoal.
2. If you have a hole in your pot skip Step 1 and move on to dirt! Pick the proper soil (succulent/cacti soil) or (tropical soil aka regular potting mix).
3. Make a little hole in the dirt and gently place your new plant baby inside. You’ll notice that succulents have dainty little roots. You will want to gently loosen the existing soil from them before planting, and gently cover them with the new soil in your pot, gently pressing the soil down over them.
4. AND THAT’S IT!
5. Succulents thrive on neglect. Give it a home with an indirect light source and that isn’t too cold or drafty. And don’t over water it, once a week is enough for most environments. If you’re in a humid area, you’ll push that out to two weeks.
