Make Your Own Succulent Potting Soil

Fill the bottom of the planter with a thin layer (about 1/2 inch) of gravel. Succulent roots don’t like to sit in water. Then Fill the planter with potting soil. Plant the Succulents. If there are spaces where the soil shows you can cover the exposed soil with flat rocks or even some of the gravel from step one.

ROOTING SUCCULENTS - cleanly pull/break leaf from plant making sure whole leaf is in tact. Allow to dry out & end to scab over. Place leaf on top of soil.

Roots and new plants should start to grow with in a couple of weeks.
