The No-Fail Guide to Choosing + Growing Succulents
May 27, 2017 by Stephanie Pollard
If you’re looking to spruce up your outdoor space, a hanging succulent wall planter is a great way to do it. Los Angeles gardenista Teryl Ciarlo of Teryl Designs recommends Fishhook Senecio, Donkey’s Tail, Sticks on Fire, String of Hearts, and Kalanchoe for hanging wall succulents; her advice is to break off ¼ inch long cuttings from succulents you already own, or if you don’t already own succulents, purchase 4” succulent plants from your local nursery. Give the stems a few days in a cool area to dry and callus over. Then, fill a mesh frame with moist cactus mix, stick the cuttings or new succulents through the mesh so the stems are in the soil, and leave the frame in a cool area for 7-10 days to allow the plants to take root. After that, you can begin watering.
