Have you ever grown succulents in your home? They are some of the easiest plants to grow indoors and offer multiple benefits as well as beauty! But where do you put them so they get the best light? How do you know when you have the right location to let them grow? I recently received some assorted succulents and decided to create a portable succulent garden so I can easily test different lighting spaces and find their perfect happy place!

How to Create a Portable Succulent Garden

Materials Needed:

  • Small Wooden Box
  • Moss or Ground Cover
  • Small Pebbles or marbles
  • Graden Accents
  • Succulents
  • Garden Gloves


  • Place the succulents in the wooden box
  • Secure the pots in place with moss or ground cover
  • Add the garden accents and small pebbles

Now you are ready to sit back and watch your succulents grow. If you find that they are not doing well with the current lighting, simply move your succulent growing box to a new window or location.

New to Succulents?

Did you know you can order succulents and air plants from What a fun idea for birthday or Christmas gifts when you want to send a gift to someone special! Succulents have beautiful flowers, are super easy to grow, come in a variety of shapes and colors, are relatively pest free and they’re low maintenance. Give them a succulent gift they can admire and grow at home, office or garden to make a perfect green space.

Don’t forget garden gloves when you start working with new plants. Whether you are working in the garden outside or replanting your succulents, garden gloves can protect your hands and even help keep your rings clean. I love these new Digz Gloves that come in three different lengths so I can pick and choose how much coverage I need when I am working with my plants.

I’ll check back in a few months and let you see how my new succulents are growing! Do you grow succulents in your home? Got any tips for the best lighting or location for these special types of indoor plants? I’d love to hear!
