A true bargain of a masterpiece, if I do say so myself.



Begin by packing the planter firmly with moss, leaving enough space to place the succulents later on. Make sure to reserve some moss to fill the top layer.

Thoroughly clean the roots of the succulents by removing any excess soil. If the roots are tightly packed together, gently loosen them to promote better root expansion. Learn more about the importance of this step by reading this article.

Begin inserting the succulents into the planter and make sure to tuck their roots into the moss for support.

Once you have your succulents arranged in the way you desire, take a step back and make sure you’re content with their placement. If there are any areas with lots of empty space between plants, you may want to consider adding some soil to fill in the gaps.

After you have everything in place, complete the display by putting some moss between the succulents. Make sure that the roots and dirt are concealed.

The arrangement should remain in a horizontal position for a minimum of 4-6 weeks so that the roots can become firmly established in the moss.

You can decide how to display your arrangement after a few weeks – whether it’s upright, hung on the wall, or kept flat.

How do you make beautiful succulent arrangements?

What are the best combinations for succulents?

For instance, I like to combine colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel, like red and green, or blue and orange. Additionally, I usually choose analogous shades when planting succulents, meaning colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel, like blue, green and purple.

How do you arrange succulents at home?

Create a hole in the center of the pot with your fingers, then insert the succulent’s roots and stem into the hole. Add soil around the base of the plant and make sure the roots are secured in the soil. Fill in the area around the base of the succulent with the soil, ensuring that the roots are well covered. This will help the succulent to settle in and become established in its new home.
