Place your biggest succulent in the middle. Dig a hole with your fingers and place the plant’s roots and stem into the hole, then surround the plant underneath with soil. If you can, try to keep the roots on the plants as this will help them grow in their new home.

Once your succulents are in place, cover them with a layer of plastic wrap and let them grow for a couple of weeks. After that, they will be ready to be transplanted into your garden.

Everything is explained in that video:

What succulents grow well together?

Agave, echeveria and sempervivum look great together in the winter. If you want to put the summer dormant Succulent together, you should think about Aeonium, Chamaecyparis, Cymbopogon, Daucus Carota, Euphorbia and Ficus.

Do succulents like to be crowded?

Succulent plants don’t mind crowding if they are grouped in one container or alone and fully filled out in the container. Transplanting a plant that has filled its container will allow the plant to experience a new level of strength.

Plants that have been transplanted into a container that is too small for them to fully fill out will not be able to take full advantage of their new environment. This is especially true for succulents that require a lot of room to grow.

If you are planning on growing a large number of plants in a single container, you may want to consider using a larger container than the one you plan to use for transplanting.

Can you mix succulents with other plants?

Planting Companions with Succulents Allow them to trail among taller succulents like aloe and agave. Ornamental grasses, often with autumn blooms and interest through winter, are appropriate companion plants for succulents.

Succulent plants have the same maintenance requirements as other varieties, but they are not as easy to care for as some of the more ornamental varieties. For example, many of these plants require frequent pruning to keep them looking their best.

How much space do succulents need?

If you want to give your succulents space, I recommend planting them about 1/2″ to 1″ apart (13 mm to 25 mm), whether you’re planting them with other succulents, or in a pot. Give them space from the edge of the pot, so that they can spread out.

You can also plant them in the ground, but be careful not to over-water them. If you do, you’ll have to water them more often, and they won’t be able to grow as tall as they would if they were planted in pots.

Can you plant succulents in just rocks?

Succulents cannot be planted in just rocks for the long term. It’s not a good idea to grow a plant in a pot or jar without some kind of potting mix. Seedlings can be propagated from cuttings, but it is best to start with a seedling that is at least 3-4 inches tall. The soil should be moist but not soggy, and it should not be too wet or too dry.

A good rule of thumb is to have a soil pH of 6.0-6.5, which is slightly acidic. This will help prevent root rot and other problems that can occur when the pH is too low. You can also add a small amount of compost to your soil if you want to make it more alkaline, or you can use a pH-adjusting fertilizer such as Calcium Phosphate or Magnesium Sulfate.

Do succulents need soil?

Regular potting soil won’t work because succulents need soil that will drain. You can mix the soil with sand, pumice, or perlite. Succulent roots are very fragile, so be gentle with them. If you want to plant a succulent in a container, you’ll need to make sure the container is large enough to hold the plant.

If you’re planting in the ground, it’s best to use a pot that’s at least 12 inches in diameter. You can also plant in containers that have drainage holes in them, but be careful not to fill the holes with soil.

Can I use regular potting soil for succulents?

Can you use regular potting soil for succulents? You certainly could use regular potting soil for succulents. If you tend to forget to water for long periods of time, or your plants are small, it might work just fine.

If the soil doesn’t dry out completely between waterings, they won’t be able to take advantage of all the vitamins and minerals in it. If you have a lot of succulent plants in your garden, you might want to consider using a mix of different types of soil.

For example, a mixture of sand and peat moss might be a good choice for small plants, but it might not be as good for larger plants. If you’re going to use a soil mix, it’s best to choose one that has a high percentage of organic matter, such as compost or manure.

This will help keep your soil healthy, and it will also help the plants grow faster.

Where do you put succulents?

Try to place them near a south- or east-facing window since they prefer at least 6 hours of sun per day. You may notice your succulents becoming spindly or stretching toward the light if they don’t get enough sun. This is normal and will go away as the plant matures. If you have a window in your home, make sure it’s wide enough to let in enough light to allow your plants to grow.

How often should succulents be watered?

You should water your succulents every other week during non-winter months when temperatures are above 40 degrees. You should only water your Succulent once a month in the winter because it is too cold to water it regularly. How to Water Your Succulent: 1. Use a watering can with a small hole in the bottom. This will allow the water to flow out of the can and into the soil. The hole should be about 1/2 inch (6 mm) in diameter.

If the hole is not large enough, you will not be able to get enough water out. You can also use a garden hose, but be careful not to let the hose get too close to the roots of your plant. Watering with this hose can cause the plant to over-water, which can lead to root rot and other problems. It is also very easy to damage your plants if you do not water them often enough.

So, make sure you have a good watering system in place before you start watering your garden plants. Also, keep in mind that the plants will need to be watered more often if they are in a hot, dry environment.

Can succulents take full sun?

Most cacti and Succulents do well in bright locations with partial shade or some protection from the sun. Some species can not tolerate full sun and will suffer from sun damage when exposed to the sun for long periods of time.
