    How to Grow an Indoor Succulent Garden

    Benjamin Kilbride, Editorial Assistant at The Old Farmer’s Almanac

    No matter the climate, grow a potted succulent garden to brighten your home.

    What Is a Succulent Garden?

    A succulent garden is a collection of succulents grown together in a single pot. The plants are selected to create an eye-catching arrangement. 

    Four Easy-to-Grow Succulents

    It’s important to choose succulents that have similar water and light requirements because they will be subject to the same living conditions—however, plant care requirements don’t need to match exactly.

    Jade Plant (Crassula ovata)

    Water: Allow the soil to dry between each watering.

    Light requirements: Provide partial, bright sunlight.

    Propagation: Cut a leaf or section of stem from a healthy jade plant. Give the cutting a few days to scab over before planting.  

     

    Hen and Chick (Sempervivum)

    Water: Allow the soil to dry between each watering.

    Light requirements: Provide full to partial, bright sunlight.

    Propagation: Babies, known as pups, will form close to the base of the plant. Carefully separate babies from the mother plant, giving them a few days to scab over before planting. 

     

    Zebra Haworthia (Haworthiopsis fasciata)

    Water: Water very infrequently, allowing the soil to dry completely between each watering.

    Light requirements: Provide bright, indirect light.

    Propagation: Babies will form close to the base of the plant. Carefully separate babies from the mother plant, giving them a few days to scab over before planting.

     

    Aloe Vera (Aloe vera)

    Water: Water deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry between each watering.

    Light requirements: Provide bright, indirect light.

    Propagation: Babies will form close to the base of the plant. Carefully separate babies from the mother plant, giving them a few days to scab over before planting.

     

    Create a Succulent Garden

     

    You Will Need . . .

    a shallow 8- to 12-inch-wide gardening pot

    well-draining potting mix

    a variety of succulent cuttings or nursery plants

    stones for decoration (optional)

    Fill the gardening pot with the potting mix, leaving 1 inch of space at the top. Lay your succulent cuttings on the surface of the soil where you will plant them. Get artistic—test a few arrangements to see how the plants fit together in the pot. Leave a few inches of space between each plant so that there is room for them to grow in the future.

    Plant the succulents in the soil. Avoid planting them deeper than 1 inch—succulents have shallow root systems, preferring to grow outward rather than downward.

    Soak the soil all of the way through to settle the plants in place. Water every few days or whenever the soil is dry to the touch to 1 inch deep, for the first 2 weeks. After that, water once a week in the summer and once every 2 weeks in the winter.

    Maintenance Tips

    Succulents require very little attention overall. Applying fertilizer is not necessary, but it can be used—it’s a personal choice. However, limit applications to no more than once a month, and only in the spring and summer. During the fall and winter, the growth rate of succulents greatly diminishes, making it unhealthy to apply fertilizer.
