If you like succulents, you’ll enjoy this list of the best trailing succulents. Plant them in hanging baskets or tall, narrow pots and watch the fat stems dangle down!
Succulents that hang or trail are becoming increasingly common due to their aesthetically pleasing appearance as they spill over from hanging baskets. It’s no surprise that these lovely “spillers” are suitable for any garden dish.
Succulents that trail and hang look great on shelves, windowsills, or suspended from the ceiling. Many types of hanging house plants can thrive in low-light environments. We recommend using well-drained soil and containers with large drainage holes to help excess moisture evaporate quickly and watering only when the soil is dry.
Annuals, ferns, and certain annual foliage plants aren’t the only plants grown in baskets and window boxes. You may also try these hanging succulents below for a change and because they require little care.
These trailing succulents will look great in your garden as well as in containers.
