5 Easy Steps to Repotting Succulents

Repotting Succulents

You’ve just received your new succulents or they’ve outgrown their old pots — either way, you need to repot your plants. You’ll need a well-draining soil mix (when I’m not using my own soilless potting mix, I like to use Hoffman Organic Cactus and Succulent Soil Mix combined with perlite), a pot (preferably with a drainage hole), and pebbles to dress the top layer of soil (it helps with drainage and prevents overwatering!)

Before repotting

Step 1. Fill the new pot or container about ¾ of the way up with the soil/perlite mixture.

Step 2. Carefully remove the succulent from the old pot or container. Gently remove any clinging, old dirt from the root system.

Step 3. Place the succulent in the new pot or container and add more of the soil/perlite mixture until the root system is covered.

Step 4. (optional) Add decorative pebbles or stones of your choosing.

Step 5. Thoroughly water your succulents and admire your work!
