Want this in my office! Succulents are both heat and drought tolerant. Stack your pots. Fill glazed pots with a mixture of 3 parts moistened potting soil and 1 part sand (or use Cactus mix). Put the small pot inside the larger one, leaving room toward the front. Plant succulents shoulder to shoulder. "Water only when the soil is dry to the touch, but don't mistake low water for no water,"
