Growing succulents adds a whole new dimension to your indoor garden. There's such a wide variety of colors and textures to choose from and getting started growing succulents is easy. Begin by selecting a container. Succulents have shallow roots so a shallow pot, dish or bowl is an ideal choice. Just make sure the container you select has good drainage. Once you've decided on a container, it's time to go shopping for plants. If you leave your plants in their original small pots, it's easy to move them around in the container until you get the arrangement you like best. Next, choose a soil that is specific for succulents. Add enough soil to your container so that your plants will sit just below the rim of the pot. This will keep water and soil from overflowing the sides of the pot when you water. Carefully remove your succulents from their containers and place them in your new pot. It's best to water succulents when they need it, not on a schedule, such as every week. Give these extraordinary plants a chance. Succulent care is easy and succulent gardens and terrariums will brighten any home and office space.
