How to Repot Succulants

To say we love plants may be an understatement. This year we bought seeds and are growing them in our office using a 24-hour light. Eventually they’ll live in our front garden. But for now? It’s safe to say we have a gardening problem. And when I say we, I mean Nace…because if I touch pretty much any plant, flower, or tree, they’ll instantly turn to mush and die. Having a green thumb is definitely not a talent I possess.

This weekend we went to Lowe’s to purchase a hedge trimmer and came out with all the pretty things instead. So we decided to at least make it productive for our followers and share how we repot succulents from store to a pretty new pot. Nace has mastered this over the last few years of trial and error with other soils, drainage systems and pots. This is the solution that has worked out really well for us keeping these hardy, but sometimes sensitive plants alive and thriving. succulent-planter
Check out the video below to see how we repot our succulents to allow for proper drainage eliminating stale water and root rot.

Supply List:
– Gravel
– Cactus Potting Mix
– Clay Pellets (We used ODLA pellets from Ikea, but you can find something similar at Lowe’s or Home Depot.)
– Large Succulent
– Sedum Garden Tile

If you have questions about your succulents feel free to comment below. Don’t worry, I’ll ask Nace and relay an answer back to you. ;)
