Succulents are hearty desert plants specifically adapted to weather-worn soil, storing water inside their leaves and stems. The roots of succulents are so efficient in absorbing moisture that constantly moist soil will kill a succulent plant. For the best potting soil mix, create a porous soil that will drain well and dry out quickly.
Place two parts potting soil, one part perlite and one part course sand in a bowl.
Mix the soils together until well blended.
Place in a gardening pot and plant the succulent.
