Tips For Potting Succulents
Gather your materials: a succulent, a new pot, filter material, soil, pebbles, someting to work on to protect floors, rags for clean up, and water.
1
Place your filter material at the bottom of your pot. I use scraps of landscape fabric. Some use coffee filters. This will help prevent soil loss.
2
Fill your pot with soil, add some water & tamp down. Eyeball the soil level and place the plant inside the pot to determine how much more you need.
3
Add some water then tamp down. This helps compress the soil so when you finally get your plant in, it won't suddenly sink.
4
Carefully remove the plant from it's pot and work into the new pot. Be gentle with the roots; try not to disturb them too much as you cover them.
5
Add a bit more water and tamp soil down. Add more soil as needed, but don't cover the plant leaves.
6
Add your mulch layer around the plant. This layer will retain moisture, and if your plants are outdoor, this helps prevent weeds from taking root.
7
Move your plant to their new spot. Read plant care instructions for it's light needs.
8
Notes: I prefer terra cotta pots, but any pot with drainage holes will do. Check if a certain time of year is best for re-potting your plant type.
