Succulent Arrangements Design Considerations

Succulents are originally beautiful spices in nature, in which we are further enhancing their beauty by arranging succulents creatively.

I have seen a lot of creative, easy, and unique succulent arrangements, and am really amazed by the ideas people are using for enhancing their homes with succulent plants.

However, before jumping to the succulent arrangements ideas I must say you should do effective planning and need to follow some design considerations. Because without careful planning, you won’t be pleased to see the final product.

Before you start, close your eyes for a moment and imagine your succulent arrangement, now tell me what you saw? Are you seeing a large succulent container? Do you see any specific color theme or any texture, or do you want a bold one or just a formal one?

Just get some inspiration from there, do mix and match with your imagination, and I am sure the final result will amaze you.

Which Succulents can be Planted Together?

So before creating succulent arrangements one question obviously comes to one’s mind that which succulents can be planted together? And what are their selection criteria?

There are so many succulents and every succulent growth and care need is different, so when we are arranging them together then we need to consider these things. Let’s discuss a few of them,

  1. Growth need: Combine those succulents who have similar growing needs. Hence it will be easier to us to maintain its care routine. For example, consider those succulents whose water needs are similar or temperature, soil, growing seasons, and light needs are similar. Some winter dormant succulent are Agave, Echeveria, and Sempervivum, etc and a few summers dormant succulents are Aeonium, kalanchoe, Aloe and Graptopetalum, etc
  2. Height: To make arrangements for a succulent thriller, filler, and spiller we should consider their height as well as color with their basic growth needs. To give a thriller look just add tall succulents, to give a filler look use small succulents, they give a cute appearance, and to give a spiller look use trailing succulents.
  3. Color: Color consideration is the most key consideration while creating succulent arrangements. You should finalize if you want a specific color theme before arranging succulents. Otherwise, end result will not give you that appearance you were expecting. There are three basic color themes of succulent arrangements: monochromatic arrangement (All same color succulents), analogous arrangements(colors sitting next to each other in the color wheel), and complementary succulent arrangements (colors that are opposite to each other on the color wheel)

Succulent Arrangements Care Tips

Caring for single planted succulent plants is easy because we can take care of individual plants according to its need but when we are talking about groups of the different succulent plants then, we need to take extra efforts so our masterpiece will survive for a longer time. That is the main reason we discussed which succulents can be planted together. Below are a few points we should consider while taking care of succulent arrangements:

  • Watering: Here use the soak and dry method. Only water your succulent arrangements when the soil in the planter becomes dry. Try to avoid overwatering and underwatering.
  • Light Requirement: It totally depends on which succulent you have combined together in an arrangement. Otherwise, most succulents need at least 8 hr of indirect sunlight and 4 hr of morning sunlight.
  • Keep your succulent arrangement piece clean.

Be Creative with succulent arrangements:

Creativity comes from imagination. Let’s close your eyes for a minute and try to imagine your masterpiece. What color themes are you seeing, what kind of planter do you want for your arrangements, just try to draw your desired succulent arrangement in your imagination.

To get more ideas you can go to nearer gardeners, nurseries to get inspiration. Once you are done with all this homework try to make your masterpiece and be creative as much as possible.
