Here lately everywhere you look there are succulents. And there seems to be an endless array of types too. After a random "date night" trip to Home Depot I found myself admiring all the pretty succulents trying to decide if I was going to jump on the bandwagon.
I decided if I was going to get one of these plants, I was going to not only by one that is nice to look at, it should be beneficial too. So, we came home with a newly adopted aloe plant (I tend to be slightly accident prone with the oven, so this plant will come in very handy).
Here are my supplies: small pebbles, potting soil, flower pot & saucer and an aloe plant.
These plants don't like a lot of water so pebbles in the bottom 1/3 of the flower pot will help with drainage and keep the soil from staying too wet.
Add your plant and soil and water slightly, and then it is ready for a nice sunny spot. I added pebbles to the saucer to: 1) Keep the curious cats from playing in any of the water that may collect and 2) I think it adds nice detail to the plant and flower pot.
Do you have any succulents in your home? Which ones do you have?
