It’s Friday, friends! Which doesn’t succ…get it? 😂😂 I can’t get over how hilarious that is. I mean, corny? Yes. But, still, so funny.
On a more serious note (kidding), let it be known that I am not a gardener, a planter, and I definitely do not have a green thumb. However, what I wish I had known sooner is that you don’t even need a green thumb to grow succulents. Win!
So, I’ve started a little family of succulents and they’ve slowly been increasing every time I happen to find myself at IKEA. 😂
I decided to take on the task of making a small planter for one of my succulents! Did you know succulents actually like living in rocks/pebbles, it allows for drainage! You just have to be careful not to over water but you must make sure the soil is well watered when you do! Most succulents only need watered once a week or every other week. Another note about where to place your succulent – some like the sun but typically not direct sunlight, succulents do great when they face eastern windows – allowing for some shade towards the second half of the day.
Okay, now that you know the basics, what will you need to make a planter?
- A container (larger or smaller based on if you want to plane one or multiple succulents.)
- Rocks or pebbles
- Soil (what comes with your potted succulent otherwise you need enough for the roots to sit in.
That’s it – you’re done! You can repeat the process for any other succulents you have or you could put multiple succulents in the same container! This little guy has already grown since I got him a month ago so I thought he needed to be alone. What do you think??
Fine me on Instagram and show me your DIY!
