I just spent 10 glorious days in Sedona Arizona. Everywhere you go there were cactuses and succulents. I love assorted succulent plants that form little works of art. These perfect succulents table decors are great for any space in your home. Learn how to create a succulent garden centerpiece that will bring a little of the beautiful southwest into your home.
- Mini succulents plants
- Large wide mouth container (I used an old tray)
- Cactus potting mix. ( You can make your own using soil and sand to make more porous.)
- A variety of succulents with different textures and shapes
- Plastic Liner
- Cut a piece of plastic bag the same size as the bottom of the tray. This will create a lining to protect the wood from rot. Because I will not be watering very much, the chance of wood rot is low.
- Places a layer of gravel on the bottom of the tray, this drainage is so the succulents don’t get wood rot.
- Add a layer of the cactus potting soil, which will provide fast drainage. To make your own cactus potting soil blend potting soil and sand at equal parts.
- Start planting the succulents with the largest succulent either in the middle or toward the side as a focal point. Take them out of the mini pots and place roots in the soil. Add the remainder of the assorted plants into a pretty succulent arrangement.
- Add soil wherever is needed. You want all the roots to be covered.
- Take the succulent arrangement outside and use a watering can and give the soil a dose. The roots are good at providing moisture to the plants. Do not over water. This can also create wood rot! Only water every 3 to 4 days depending on how dry they get.
Whether they are indoor succulent garden centerpieces. Are you inspired to create one? For more garden ideas with unique containers check out my 3 tier herb garden.
