3 ideas for homemade flower pots with succulents

Succulents are perfect for beautiful decorations without too much effort, as they require very little water. They store water in their leaves, stems and roots and can thus easily survive long periods of drought. Succulents are therefore ideal for beginners and those who don’t have a green thumb.
However, more seasoned gardeners also appreciate succulents because these undemanding, but still pretty plants can be planted in quirky containers such as mugs, glasses or tea boxes.

You can also make these extraordinary flowerpots yourself. Here are 3 flowerpot ideas that make succulents even more beautiful.

Advice : If succulents are to stay in your homemade flower pots for a long time, carefully poke holes in the bottom of each pot to prevent them from absorbing too much water. You can also cover the bottom of flower pots with a layer of sand or pebbles before putting in the potting soil.
