Planning to grow succulents? Here are some basic materials you need for planting this “cute babies” in containers. I got these tips from my favorite gardening blog, succulentsandsunshine.com.
- Mesh tape or drainage screen
- A container (the ones with drainage hold are highly recommended to prevent your plant from rotting)
- Succulent soil (though there are readily available cactus and succulent potting mix in the market, you can always prepare your own soil mix)
- Top Dressing (you can use colorful gravels, pebbles, sphagnum moss, gems or beads)
- Lucky Bamboo (from dracaena genus)
- Hawaiian Ti Plant (I already one variety of this)
- Money Tree (Pachira)
- Jade Plant
- Snake Plant
- White clover
- Agave succulents
- African Violets
- Vietnam Rose
- Song of Jamaica
- Song of India
Put a teaspoon of red pepper flakes in a spray bottle of hot water, shake and spray generously on the plants.
With that tips on hand, I will try gardening again in our rooftop. I will put potted herbs there and arrange my growing collection of succulents and cacti. Good luck to me!

Warning: Propagating succulents, cacti and other bonsai plants can be really addicting. 🙂
For light requirements, crown of thorns plant needs bright light to full sun. It is easy to grow and drought-tolerant, and loves slightly dry, sandy soil. This succulent stores water in its stems just like cactus, so no need to water it everyday.
