How to choose the right succulent pots?
Let's start with the "material" point of view. In fact, succulents are not fussy with the material of the flower pot. Beautiful ceramic flower pots or yogurt cups can be used as flower pots. However, terracotta pots are more absorbent since newbies tend to water too much. Pottery pots can help reduce the amount of water in the pots so that succulents can easily survive with fast evaporation in a dry environment.

From the perspective of "depth", the shallower flower pots for planting succulents rather than deep ones are preferred, because deep pots will also slow down the evaporation of water, and it will take a long time to dry after watering. But there are exceptions to some succulent varieties. Such as Haworthia obtusa var, because the root system is relatively long, so it is more appropriate to plant it in deeper pots.
From the "caliber" point of view, it is best to choose some pots with a big mouth and a small belly, so that the soil in the pot can be in contact with the air to the maximum extent, which is conducive to the rapid evaporation of water. If it is a small-mouthed and big-bellied flower pot, it is easy to cause the water to accumulate in the pot and not disperse, and it is easy to revolve the roots.
Everyone should pay attention when choosing succulent flower pots. They must have bottom holes. Newbies can't control the amount of water. If you water them frequently, the bottom holes can let the excess water flow out smoothly. Even if the non-porous flowerpot has large particles on the bottom of the pot, the water still accumulates on the bottom of the pot. At noon when the temperature is high, it will be stuffy and steamed with succulents.

What is the size of a mini succulent pot?
The size of a mini succulent pot, generally, is those with a diameter of less than 6 cm.
Some newbies may ask, is it really possible to plant succulents in a mini succulent pot? Wouldn't it be dead?
Succulents in the mini succulent pot can not only be kept alive but also easier to grow a good shape. Because there is little soil in the pot, the water evaporates quickly, and the succulents couldn’t love it anymore in the environment. Because Succulents were originally grown in a relatively harsh environment and have strong drought tolerance. In fact, as long as they are given a little living space and good control of water, they can easily grow.
Why do we use small pots for succulents?
If the pots are too large, the soil will dry slowly, and the roots will easily rot by soaking in water. Besides, most succulents have short roots. Small pots allow the roots to absorb enough nutrients so that succulents can grow healthier.
The succulents such as baby fingers, sedum pachyphyllum, graptopetalum amethystinum and leaves love living in the tiny home.
Those succulents are compact and small, which can better adapt to the environment of the succulent pot. Graptopetalum Amethystinum is like a dry environment, the succulent pots can prevent the phenomenon of overwatering happening.
The leaves of sedum pachyphyllum are 3 to 4 cm long, thick in quality and rounded, and the plant is 5 to 30 cm high. It is one of the best succulent varieties grown in mini succulent pots. Sedum pachyphyllum compared to other succulents is more resistant to drought, and can adapt well to the water-deficient environment of the minin succulent pots, and has beautiful colors and high ornamental value.
Graptopetalum Amethystinum is small, and drought-tolerant, like a dry environment. A mini succulent pot with good potting drainage is a very suitable home for these succulents. Small pots won’t retain water which provides a suitable growth environment for Graptopetalum Amethystinum.
Almost all varieties of succulent leaves can be propagated in mini succulent planters in good potting soil. the drip-watered method can be applied, which can better control the amount of watering and accelerate its growth rate. Ordinary succulent pots are difficult to control the soil environment, making it difficult for the baby leaves to survive. A mini succulent pot can better control the soil composition and promote growth without applying fertilizer.
It is definitely a small blessing to be able to carefully hold the beloved succulents in the palm of the hand to appreciate and play.
