My Indoor Succulent Garden

Tips & Tricks to planting and keeping them alive.


Indoor Succulent Garden- Reclaimed Barn Wood

I love having plants in the house, but we travel a lot and I hate asking people to water plants, ergoI LOVE SUCCULENTS! We have this great antique store in town called Dixieland Relics.  They have a great selection of Reclaimed wood which I used in my bedroom update.

I found this old barn box and had been wanting to do a larger succulent garden for a while so when i found the box I was really excited.


I Purchased succulents from Lowes. Cactus, Palm, & Citrus Soil which is the best for succulents.


I lined the box with wax paper to protect the box some and arranged the plants the way I wanted them.


Tips to keeping your succulents alive indoors. IMG_4248

  1. 6 Hours or more of sunlight. Succulents need plenty of sunlight and often times when they’re indoors they’re not getting enough.
  2. Water, dobest to completely soak the soil and then let it dry out completely before watering them again.n’t use a spray bottle. This is a common mistake that people make when trying to keep their succulents alive. They don’t water enough or they over water. Its
  3. Keep them at the right temperature. Succulents actually like to be cooler in the winter. I live in florida so we rarely have a frost. During the winter they like to be  at 50-60 degrees so put them outside during the winter months. During the summer if they’re indoors keep them between 70-80 degrees.

    • It depends on the look you’re going for. I you do trim make sure you cut just over 2 joining leaves. If it doesn’t have 2 leaves together you can usually trim where you want it.
