A good amount of space for your succulents is generally about 1/2 inch to an inch (13 mm to 25 mm), whether you’re planting them with other succulents, or in a pot. Give them about 1/2″ between the edge of the pot or any other succulents.Click to see full answer. Then, how much room do succulents need?As a general rule, I recommend leaving about a half-inch of space between your succulents and the edge of the pot, so they’ll have a little room to spread and grow. Too much space can actually prevent a succulent from growing much larger, because the roots spread out before the succulent has time to catch up.Secondly, do succulents need a lot of space? When there is space between the plants it’s easier to water the succulents properly. There is also better air flow so the soil will dry out more quickly. Too much space will cause the succulents to focus on producing roots rather than getting larger. I would say that 1/2″ to 1″ is a good space between plants. In this regard, can succulents grow close together? Answer: Succulent arrangements can be so much fun to put together! Planting your succulents close together will keep the arrangement tight, but planting them further apart will not cause them issues, as long as they’re not too far apart. It’s really up to you and how much you want your succulents to grow and spread.Do succulents like to be crowded? Crowding Them Together There aren’t many plants that like this arrangement, including succulents. Overcrowding is one of the best ways to encourage mold and insect infestations. If your succulents arrive in a crowded arrangement, pluck them out carefully and give them each their own spacious mini desert dune.
