We received this beautiful planter from Virginia Johnson recently and have been wanting to buy some succulents to place on our back patio for the summer. This one was perfect and so we picked up a couple plants to compliment Virginia's signature print painted beneath a rustic glaze. Repotting is quite simple once you now, here's how we repotted them.
To start, remove the succulent from it's original pot. Gently loosen off excess soil surrounding the roots so you can see them dangling a little. Use a cacti or succulent mix of soil which contains vermiculite or perlite. Pour a few rocks on the bottom of the new pot for drainage. Then add a bit of the cacti soil mix. Create a hole for each plant individually and wrap new soil around each plant so they are nice and snug in their new spot. We add a little water after repotting just to settle everyone in.
To Care For:
To care for a succulent, be sure to place it in a natural sunlit spot. Let soil dry out completely before watering, and water sparingly to avoid root rot.
We love this combination of succulents and cacti together. Makes for a nice summer centrepiece on our patio table.
