How to Make a Succulent Christmas Tree

Rate this post

Rather than picking out dozens of pre-made artificial trees at the store, why not pick your own Christmas tree this year with a few succulents instead? Not only do they look better, but they will require far less fussing around come December.

What is the Christmas Tree

The Christmas tree is a symbol of hope and joy. It is a holiday tradition around the world. The most popular type of Christmas tree is the succulent tree. Succulent trees are easy to care for and make a beautiful addition to your holiday decor. Here are five tips on how to make a succulent Christmas tree:

1) Start by finding a sturdy stand that will hold your tree up. A tall, slim tree will look best on a small stand. A wide, squat tree will look better on a large stand.

2) Search for a pre-lit succulent tree. These trees come with lights and are ready to set up.

3) Decide what kind of succulent you would like to use as your centerpiece. There are many different types of succulents available, so it’s important to choose one that will look good in your home décor. Some popular types of succulents include aloe vera, cactus, and eucalyptus.

4) Choose a variety of succulents to add height and interest to your tree. For example, attach cactus along the bottom of the stem, add bloomy spider plants in the middle

How to Make a Succulent Christmas Tree

If you’re in the market for a unique Christmas decoration, a succulent tree is definitely the way to go! Here’s how to make one:

  1. Start by gathering your materials. You’ll need potting soil, succulent plants (try cactus or aloe), a Christmas tree stand, and some decorations (ornaments, lights, etc.).
  2. Fill your potting soil halfway with fresh water and place your succulents inside. Make sure they’re well-watered and give them a little sun exposure if desired.
  3. Place the Christmas tree stand on top of the potting soil so that the roots are touching the ground. Make sure the tree is straight and plumb before placing it in place.
  4. Hang your ornaments from the tree’s branches using pretty white ribbon or colorful wire hangers. Be sure to leave enough room between each ornament so that they don’t touch each other or the trunk of the tree.
  5. Add some lights to your succulent Christmas tree and enjoy!

What Materials do You Need for a Succulent Christmas Tree?

If you’re looking to deck the halls this holiday season with a succulent Christmas tree, there are a few materials you’ll need. First, gather some potting soil and loam mix. You’ll also need some small succulent plants (e.g., Aloe Vera, Philodendron), potting mix, and water. To create the base of your tree, spread a layer of potting soil and loam mix at the bottom of a container or bowl. Then carefully place the succulents into the bedding, making sure they are spaced well apart. Top off the base with another layer of soil and loam mix. Water the plant well before adding a final layer of potting soil and loam mix on top. Gently press the mixture down with your hands to ensure an even surface. Finally, place your ornament or other Christmas decoration on top and water well again. If desired, you can spruce up your tree by adding fresh greenery during the holiday season.

You Will Need:

-A succulent
-A pot or container with a good drainage system
-A soil mix (half potting soil and half sand)
-Some plants (succulents) to put in the pot

First, get your succulent. You can buy them pre-cut, or you can take a piece of succulent that you want to use and cut it yourself. Ideally, the succulent should be around 2 inches wide by 4 inches long. Once you have the size you need, cut it into smaller pieces. Put the pieces into your pot or container, making sure they are well spaced out. Add water until the pot is full and then add enough soil to cover the succulent pieces. Mix the soil well and then pat it down. Leave the succulent in a sunny spot for at least four weeks, watering every day if necessary. After four weeks, you can plant your succulent in the soil mix. You can also add some other plants to your tree if you like. Enjoy your beautiful succulent Christmas tree!


Start by arranging the succulents according to how large or small you want your tree to be. If you have a lot of smaller plants, try grouping them together so they are more manageable. Then, fill in the gaps with smaller plants. Once everything is in place, water the plants well and give them a light dusting of fertilizer.
