🌱Pairing Succulents DIY

Arranging Succulents💚

In today's DIY guide we are going to plant succulents in a terra-cotta pot using the Thriller, Filler and Spiller method featuring the Echeveria 'Lola' as the "thriller" plant, Anacampseros 'Sunrise' as the "filler" plant and last but not least Sedum Dasyphyllum 'Minor' as the "spiller" plant. In our personal opinion we like the way each succulent variety compliment on another in color, size and texture.🙂

Enjoy*🐝

Materials:

  1. Terra-cotta planter
  2. Soil (cactus mix)
  3. 1 Echeveria 'Lola' (thriller)
  4. 4 Anacampseros 'Sunrise' (filler)
  5. 1 Sedum Dasyphyllum Minor cluster (spiller)
  6. Knitting needle

Procedure:

1.Fill your pot tightly with soil all the way up to the rim. Create a hole right in the center of your pot about 3 inch deep.

2. Gently take your Lola out of it's nursery pot and shake off as much of the dirt from the root ball as you can and place it in the hole you created in the center of your pot. Using your fingers, gently tuck in the dirt under your succulent, making sure the leaves at the base are not under the soil but right on top of it. The Echeveria 'Lola' is a beautiful and popular succulent. The dusty light pink rosette will be the center of attention or as we like to say "thriller" in this arrangement.😍

3. Now that you have planted your thriller plant, it is time to gently take out your filler succulents out of their nursery pots and as we did with the Lola, shake off as much of the soil from the rootball as you can, being gentle to not disturb the delicate roots this particular succulent has.

*The Anacampseros 'Sunrise' succulent is a type of mimicry plant that will stay small and produce clusters of pups, eventually "filling" in any holes in your arrangement, a perfect match for our beloved Lola that will stay nice and tight in the center. Plant your filler succulents around the Echeveria 'Lola' like so.⬇️

4. Time for the last stage of your planting. For this specific arrangement I used Sedum Dasyphyllum 'Minor', a delicate dainty succulent. Once this plant has fully rooted, the sedum will eventually start "spilling" over the terra-cotta pot, giving it a delicate effect.😌 

*For the Sedum I used a 4 inch container that I split into four clumps. I used a knitting needle to gently push in the roots into their spot.*
