Use a quick-draining soil blend
Containers such as the trough Stefanie uses in this video, should be filled with well-drained and not overly rich soil. We utilize a soil mixed with perlite and rice hulls.
How to care for succulents
Once planted, caring for your succulent trough planter is easy. Succulents do require consistent moisture. They enjoy being in full sun, which also helps bring out the colors in their foliage. Here in the northeast most succulents can even be overwintered indoors right in their containers as long as the soil doesn’t get soggy. In warmer regions they will do well over winter outdoors as long as they’re protected from winds.
