  • Hi, I'm Tricia, a California organic gardener.

  • Succulents are unique and beautiful.

  • These fantastical, drought tolerant plants are easy and fun to grow in containers.

  • Succulents are tough plants for every climate, not just at the beach or in the desert.

  • And I recommend these two books "Hearty Succulents" and "Succulent Container Gardens"

  • which explain how you can grow succulents in virtually every climate.

  • If you've never grown succulents before, the ones I'm going to show you today are great ones to start with.

  • Succulent genus such as Kalanchoe

  • Aeonium

  • Agave

  • Aloe

  • Echeveria

  • Sedum

  • and Sempervivum.

  • Before you choose your plants or your containers,

  • you need to decide what kind of arrangement you want.

  • Is it indoors or outdoors? Do you want it big or small?

  • Is it going to be a window decoration or door decoration like a wreath,

  • or maybe a patio accent?

  • Succulents also make beautiful centerpieces.

  • Once you decide on an arrangement you can choose your plants!

  • Choose a plant that's a focal point and then choose plants that harmonize with it.

  • Odd numbers are more visually pleasing than even numbers.

  • Succulents can be grown in virtually any kind of container,

  • as long as their cultural requirements are met.

  • Shallow containers are often chosen because most succulents have a shallow,

  • laterally growing root system.

  • Tall containers are good too because it will allow the succulent to tolerate

  • more water which is good in wetter climates.

  • Shallow containers hold an even amount of moisture throughout.

  • Tall containers have more variation of the wet and dry,

  • being more dry at the top and wet at the bottom.

  • It also matters what kind of material your pot is made of.

  • Pots made of non porous material like metal will retain more moisture,

  • which is great for arid climates.

  • Porous pots like unglazed terra cotta might be better idea for wet climates.

  • Succulents like light soil. A good recipe is half 'n half mix

  • of high quality potting soil with perlite.

  • Pumice will also work.

  • You can put a little mesh or a piece of paper towel at the bottom of the pot

  • to prevent the soil from going through the hole.

  • So you want to plant your succulents starting with the biggest plant and working your way down.

  • I suggest top-dressing the container with some pebbles or crushed rocks.

  • It helps keep the perlite from floating away,

  • as well as keep moisture from the base of the plant.

  • And it looks pretty!

  • Your succulents don't need a lot of water. The plumper the leaves, the less water they need,

  • and it's okay to let them dry out in between watering.

  • Succulents are not cacti. Most prefer dappled light instead of direct sunlight.

  • Some can stay outside all year long,

  • others need to be brought in for the winter, or it can grow all year long on a sunny windowsill.

  • So plant succulents and Grow Organic for Life!
