Jellyfish-succulents are a new term in the world of gardening, which is very confusing for many people. Such succulents, in fact, do not exist in nature, but you can create them by yourself if you give your creativity a free hand.
There are people in the world who can bring every plant back to life, no matter how dry it is. Of course, there are also their exact opposites, the” so-called” people who do not succeed in growing plants. If you belong to this second group, know that succulents are the answer to all your problems – they are beautiful and come in many shapes, colors, and dimensions. And the best part is that they occasionally need just a drop of water. These plants are actually hard to kill, and they require minimum effort for maintenance.
So, if you like to make your own jellyfish-succulents, know that you can do it with two varieties of plants. Choosing them will also be your most difficult task because there are a handful of beautiful and unique species.
How To Make Jellyfish Succulents
What you need is the following:
- A hanging pot
- Fertile soil
- 2 sorts of succulents – one for the jellyfish tentacles and one for the body of the jellyfish
First, fill the pot with the soil almost to the top. Then, plant five or six hanging succulents near the pot’s rim. Sedum morganianum or Burro’s-tail is one of the suitable varieties for that, which grows best when it is exposed to sunlight, with moderate watering.
After that, plant more (5-6) flowering succulents of your choosing inside the hanging pot. Leave enough space between the plants so they can grow and design the shape of a jellyfish. For the tentacles, you can use echeveria. This is a large succulent with rose-shaped leaves, which is available in several colors and requires regular deep watering.
Hang your pot in your garden or balcony so that it spends most of the day in the sun. After a few weeks, you will notice the change. The succulent will start flowering at its top and elongate at the bottom. However, remember to water the plants regularly and keep the soil moist. Leave the plants in a part sunny part shady place so they can develop properly. If one of your succulent plants dies, don’t worry you can replace it with a new one. Once they develop, your masterpiece will look alienish and sort like a jellyfish.
