Bowls


Want to create a major impact? Group them together in one big bowl! You can group as many as seven to nine varieties. To make your “succulent bowl party” more eye-catching, pick plants that vary in height and color. Add even more visual interest by using a colorful bowl, or a traditional ceramic blue-and-white bowl.

Mini grouping


If you don’t want to lump all your succulents in a bowl, you can make a mini-vignette using containers of different shapes, materials, and heights (try using up-cycled items like old jars or decorative pieces). Small to medium-size succulents are best for this style. Try the echeveria family, the crassula conjuncta, aloe aristata, or crassula tricolor necklace.

Modern vignette


For a modern, streamlined vignette (best in modern-tropical homes), go for a grouping of similar, simple pots in different sizes and with a single kind of cactus each. Create dimension by arranging the cacti in varying levels.

Hanging

Contrary to the notion that only specific plant types can be used, succulents can be a more modern, structured alternative to the usual hanging plants. Use a sculptural-looking container, or place them in small bowls and perch them on top of shelves.
