One of the biggest projects that I’ve been far to lazy and forgetful to accomplish has been transferring this aloe plant from it’s starting pot into this sweet GROW pot I bought at Target maybe a year or two ago. The plant isn’t as old as the pot, I’d like to just point that out. I realize that transferring plants to new pots should be done somewhat immediately but, for whatever the reason, I just couldn’t get myself to do it. I blame it on the move.
Yesterday, I finally took the leap and headed to my local Lowe’s for some soil and rocks to set this baby straight. I don’t have much of a green thumb, but I do know that since my pot doesn’t have holes at the bottom I needed to put a layer of rocks to help with draining. I also made sure to get soil meant for succulents and such for added measure. I have 3 other planting projects lined up involving succulents so the bag size will totally be worth it!
I used all red rocks at the bottom since I knew I was going to be using them for any of my planting projects at surface level. Then, I placed the dirt and the plant. After patting the dirt down and watering it just a little, I laid down most of the white/lightly colored rocks on top. Mr. Ducky super approves of his newly rejuvenated window sill mate!
I can’t wait to take all the succulent plants and clippings my mom gave me and place them in their new homes!
