DIY Darling: Grow Your Own Succulents

It’s no secret that succulents are one of the hottest flora on the scene this season. Whether you’re a June bride and planning to host immense succulents in your bouquet or just want to jump on this trendy bandwagon, growing your own is fun and easy to do! Similar to the Christmas cactus your boyfriend’s Mom gave you over the holidays, this green plant is semi-drought friendly. Feel free to take a week long vacay and not worry about returning home to a shriveled up plant.

Planting Process.

Step One.Β Purchase a large, sturdy clay pot. Fill it to the brim with potting mix and top off with gravel. With a touch of water blend the potting mix and gravel together!

Step Two. Remove the succulents from their home and cluster them together in the pot according to their sizes and shapes.

Step Three. Sprinkle colored aquarium gravel around each plant until the soil mixture is covered.

Watering.

This is the part that I have the most trouble with when it comes to any plants! Succulents and Sunshine breaks this step down perfectly and I strongly suggest heading over their website to read upΒ on How to Water Succulent Plants.

Happy Planting!
