This is an easy, easy, easy planter. This bright light, hot sun planter will add fun to any household. Great for that simple urban feel.
1. Make sure your succulents get enough light
Succulents love bright light, warmth and need about six hours of sun per day, depending on the type of succulent. Newly planted succulents can scorch in direct sunlight, so you may need to gradually introduce them to full sun exposure or provide shade with a sheer curtain.
2. Rotate them frequently
Succulents love direct sun, but if yours is sitting in the same exact spot day after day, it's likely that only one side is getting enough light. Succulents will lean towards the sun, so rotating them will help them stand up straight. (Leaning may also be a sign that they need to be in a sunnier spot.)
3. Water according to the season
Just like us, succulents need more energy when they're in a period of growth. During the spring and summer, the plants are thriving and drinking up much more water than when they're resting in the fall and winter. Don’t forget to water the leaves of your succulent as that is how it absorbs the majority of its water. Test the soil with a finger—when the top 1.25 inches are dry, grab your watering can. Overwatering can kill your succulent, so make sure you let the soil very dry between watering.
4. Choose a container with drainage
Succulents don’t like to sit in waterlogged soil, so drainage is important to prevent rot. Your container should have a drainage hole to allow excess water to escape. Terra-cotta pots are ideal for beginners. If you can not supply a drainage hole, packing peanuts or rocks are the perfect way to add drainage to any pot!
