How to Construct a Halloween Succulent Arrangement

1. Ensure proper drainage. Begin with medium-sized pebbles at the bottom of your Halloween bowl. This will allow for better drainage so your succulents don’t get overwatered.

2. Soil. Pour some organic soil into your pot. If you want to half-bury any Halloween decorations, now is the time! Do not fill up the soil all the way, leave ample room for your succulents to be placed in as well. If you add too much soil, your succulents will be sticking up too high!

3. Plant. Now for the fun part! Pick a couple succulent varieties that look good together and have the same water and light needs, and plant them in the pot. Add more soil to surround the succulents and fill up the pot.

4. Decorate. Add small black pebbles on top of your soil and around your planted succulents to add a spooky feel to your arrangement. Add any other small Halloween decorations such as spiders, witches, vampires, and pumpkins.

Add your favorite spooky characters in your Halloween succulent design and enjoy!
