Three Ways to Incorporate Succulents into your Home | House and Leisure

Indigenous, water-wise and low-maintenance, succulents are wonderful plants for both seasoned green thumbs and beginners alike. You can propagate them from a fallen leaf, grow them from a cutting or simply buy already established plants from nurseries and plant stores.

We've rounded up three ways you can incorporate succulents into your home, all of which you can shop now.

Succulents in Terrariums

Terrariums are perfect living ornaments that bring the outside in. Whether placed on a table or hanging in a window, they can transform your interiors and also make for unique, distinctive gifts. Because terrariums don't have drainage holes, succulents are used wherever possible as they require minimal water and are incredibly easy to care for.

Single Succulents

If you have limited space, are looking for a green addition for your office desk or simply want to enjoy the beauty of one plant, a single succulent is the way to go. This option is also great for beginners who find the thought of caring for more than one succulent variation a bit daunting, but be warned – once you've got one succulent, you're sure to want more!

Mixed Succulents

Enjoy the wide variety of succulents available with a mixed succulent bowl. Because their roots are shallow, you don't need to worry about the plants jostling for soil space, but always keep the plant itself above the soil to avoid leaf rot. Although your plants will grow more slowly when placed together, the result is a dynamic arrangement with various colours and shapes.
