SUCCULENT CONTAINER

Succulentcontainer perfect for hot climates

A container with succulents is a perfect solution for you patio in a warm climate.

The succulent container you see here is usually placed by the door to the backyard  facing directly to the south. It was the brightly colored Yucca which I found on Lowes buying mulch that inspired me to repot some other succulents and gather them all in a lar ger terracotta container.

Because of the location of the pot I have to water every second day in the warmest summer months. When I leave for my holiday in Scandinavia I will even move this pot of hardy succulents to a more shadowy place. It still needs to be placed airy because of the fleshy leaves of some of the species in the container. They will sometimes wilt if they are placed too dark and humid.

I have written of how you plant succulents in a container here and how I found some of the showy one’s last year here. Southern Living have a short and inspiring slideshow on Planting succulents too.
