Best ideas to decorate with succulents

Rate this post

Do you know any plant that has a more suggestive name than succulents? We love this name and it has inspired us so much that we have decided to dedicate a post to it with ideas to use these plants in our decoration. The most typical example of a succulent is that of cacti, to which we have already dedicated an entry. Succulents are characterized by having thickened stems, leaves, or roots to dispose of large amounts of water. This adaptation allows them to maintain water reserves for long periods and survive in arid and dry environments that are uninhabitable for other plants. They are the ideal plant if all your plants die because they need very little pampering and at the same time their shapes and colors are spectacular. So do not miss the ideas to decorate with succulents that we bring you today.

Decorate with succulents: terrariums

A beautiful terrarium is very easy to create: you just need an empty fish tank or a cute glass container, as all these photos show. You can hang it on the wall or place it on a table; Whatever style they are, succulent terrariums are wonderful!

They look so natural and relaxing. What’s better than having a gorgeous terrarium that you created yourself? Adding some plants to decorate your terrarium is the best thing you can do. You can choose from hundreds of succulents, but if you want something more exotic, you can even add a snake plant or a fern! Here are some ideas for creating a beautiful terrarium: 1. Decorations If you don’t have any plants yet, you can easily buy a terrarium kit.

Decorate with succulents: vertical gardens

Vertical gardens are always spectacular, but with succulents, a more impressive effect is achieved since we can play with their shapes and colors without needing large spaces. It’s like having a bunch of fleshy flowers forming a vivid painting on the wall.

What do you need to know before starting?

  • Succulents need sunlight to grow well. They can be kept outside all year round, but it’s important that they get some sun. The amount of light and heat they need will depend on their species.
  • Water is crucial. You’ll need to provide water regularly in order for them to survive. The soil should be dry, so make sure there are no clumps or wet areas.
  • Succulents do best in well-drained soil.
  • If they’re kept in a container, add a layer of pebbles or stones to help with drainage.
  • It’s also good to provide some fertilizer, especially for the beginning of the growing cycle. However, the amount you feed your succulents depends on their species and how much they’re growing.
  • When repotting, use clean, fresh soil. Use a trowel or knife to gently remove the old soil from the roots, making sure not to damage them. Take care not to overfill the pot; succulents don’t like having their roots wrapped up too tight.
  • Succulents are most active during the warmer months, which means you’ll need to take extra care when you’re outside. If you’re going to be gone for more than an hour or two, make sure to cover them with a sheet of plastic. You can also keep them in a shaded area of your yard.
  • During winter, you can put your succulents in a cold frame.

A cold frame is a glass or wooden box that has ventilation holes on the top and bottom. The temperature inside stays fairly constant, making it perfect for keeping plants alive through the chilly months. 6. After a few years, succulents will start to look a little weathered. This is normal, but if they start to look discolored, don’t hesitate to throw them out.

Decorate with succulents: bottles

An idea that has made us fall in love is to recycle a bottle of wine or liquor and adapt it to use it as a pot of succulents. It is beautiful as a centerpiece or to give to that person who is unable to keep a living plant. Give succulents! They are the solution for plant lovers who are always dying.

  • We have found the best way to adapt the bottles is to make them in the form of a vase, but you can also cut the neck off and adapt it directly. The bottles should be cleaned, washed, and dried. They can be used with or without the stopper. The bottle can also be recycled as a flowerpot. This is how you do it:
  • Find a bottle in good shape, one that is not too wide and too long. The bottom should be square, the top round.
  • Use a pair of scissors to cut off the neck of the bottle. You can also use a knife.
  • Remove the stopper and wash the bottle.
  • It’s important to clean all the dirt off the surface of the bottle. To do this, you can soak it in warm water for a while.
  • Rinse and dry the bottle. If necessary, you can put it in the oven to dry.
  • Fill the bottle with water and insert it in the sun for at least three days.
  • Rinse the bottle and dry it again.
  • Fill it with a flowerpot and add soil. Plant a flower or some vegetables.
  • Fill the rest of the bottle with water and put the stopper back in place. This way, you can have a nice flower vase for a long time.   

Decorate with succulents: cages

What decorations go with succulents?

There are many decorations that go well with succulents. Some popular choices include rocks, pebbles, and sand.

How do you decorate a succulent at home?

To decorate a succulent at home, you can plant it in a decorative pot or container, or add rocks or gravel around it to create a more attractive display. You can also add a small trellis or other support structure to help the plant grow upright.

Choose a pot that is slightly larger than the plant itself so that it will have room to spread out and grow roots. Fill the pot with a potting soil mix that has some compost or other organic matter mixed in, plus fertilizer. If you are planting your succulent outside, use a potting mix that drains well. Water the plant thoroughly, making sure that the entire pot is wet. This will encourage roots to grow quickly and develop a healthy root system. Watering is especially important when planting succulents in pots because they do not like to dry out. If you do water, only water the top inch of soil, to avoid overwatering the plant.

How do you style succulents?

There are many ways to style succulents. 

From the soft and simple to the ornate and extravagant. I have a few favorites that I always keep on hand for any occasion. Here is my list of favorite succulent styling tips. 1. Use the right soil. Succulents need a lot of love. They are delicate plants and they need to be kept in good shape. The best way to care for them is to use the right type of potting mix.

How do you arrange succulents beautifully?

I have a large number of them and I just want to display them nicely. A: I like to use a small round tray with water and sand, as the water will hold the soil together (and keeps it from being too dry), and the sand can be used for more interesting arrangements than just in the soil. You can buy these at any store that sells plants, or if you are lucky enough to have a local garden center.

To arrange succulents beautifully, start by finding a container that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Next, fill the bottom of the container with gravel or rocks for drainage. Then, add a layer of potting soil and arrange the succulents in the container. Finally, water the succulents and place the container in a bright, sunny spot.
