Today I want to show you 3 cute ways to plant succulents! I am loving these tiny, cute, easy-going plants so much! Probably because they are the only plants I am managing to care for successfully. I planted some last year in this DIY pallet planter and they expanded quickly, so I had to look for new spots for them. I brought some inside, because they just make for such cute decor! Last week I posted one planter already, but today I just thought I share my little succulent window nook with you and two more ideas to uniquely plant these cuties.
3 Cute Ways To Plant Succulents
Succulents need very little water, so drainage is important.
I added a drainage layer by putting little rocks to the bottom of each planter before adding soil. Adding a drainage layer allows excess water to get out of the soil more quickly and away from roots before they can be damaged. Though the water is still in the pot, the drainage layer provides a barrier between too much water and your plant.

2. Mug Planter
All you need are cute mugs! I used these mugs my sister in law made a few years ago. They were used as mugs, but I think they are too pretty to be in a cupboard “only” to sip coffee from.
3. Bundt Pan Planter
Use your old or new bundt pans, mine was used like this before. It was stored away for most of the time after that and has a cute vintage look now.
Pin this for later please!
I cannot get enough of having these green plants inside my home, they are so pretty and just make me happy. I hope you like these 3 easy ideas and even if you don’t have any of these “planters” at home, you might find other unique items you could re-purpose into some.
