An Urban Oasis-Types of Succulent Plants


I never thought much about types of succulent plants while growing up, since they all seemed ugly and sharp, from what I remember. I’ve noticed that many people include these desert plants in their gardens here in Southern California. Since getting into gardening, I have delightfully discovered that there are many types of succulent plants available.

Not all succulents are hard on the eyes and pointy, thankfully. Succulents come in many sizes, shapes, and colors. I have found a huge variety of beautiful succulents that grow well in container gardens.

Hello everyone! Welcome to my site and first post! As I’ve said before, this site is dedicated to my fellow gardeners who have limited space and budget to work with. Feel free to email suggestions on what you would like to see on here as well!

I’ll start with something basic. I first started with a small pot, some dirt, and a plant! I received this amaryllis as a bulb from a good friend of mine. Although this is just one plant, it adds beauty and color to an otherwise dull outside space.

The pot is made of plastic, so it was very inexpensive. Dirt is also inexpensive and I was able to get the bulb for free, so this setup was very budget friendly.

That is all for now. Stay tuned for more!
