How To Choose The Best Succulent Planters

Choosing the right pot plays an important role in making sure your succulent thrives. Here are some factors to consider:

Drainage Holes

Keeping your succulents alive is to provide plenty of sunlight and avoid overwatering. If you're looking for a low-maintenance option, choose pots with drainage holes at the bottom. Besides the drainage holes, make sure the succulent soil mix has good drainage.

Material

Succulent plants can tolerate almost all types of material. Terra cotta pots and ceramic pots can heat up when placed in direct sun, which isn't the most ideal for succulents. If you go with one of these materials, be sure not to receive direct sun all day.

Porous ceramic pots and stoneware allow air and moisture to pass through, and they may need more frequent watering than non-porous materials like plastic or metal.

Depth

Succulent plants have small roots. Therefore, they can grow in shallow pots for a long time without needing repotting.
