Don’t you just love succulents as much as Nell and I do? Adding them to your decor helps lighten up a forgotten corner of your home and brings in a burst of life. And, if you combine those succulents with the right container, it’s a win-win all the way around. I put together this round-up filled of 20 small pots for succulents to make the shopping easy for you.
Succulents don’t have a large root system and can grow in these small pots for a long period of time. It’s best if the pots have a drain hole because succulents don’t like to have their roots kept constantly wet. If there’s no drain hole, then put at least an inch or 2 layers of pebbles on the bottom of the pot and ease up on the watering amount and frequency.
When choosing the right spot for your succulents be sure to remember that these aren’t low light plants. They like as much natural light as you can give them. If you already have succulents and are looking to propagate them for planting in your new pots, then be sure to check out this post on 2 very easy ways to propagate succulents.
Choosing pots is fun but can be very overwhelming. There are so many styles out there and these are my current favorites. There are still a lot to choose from but at least they’re all in 1 place for your browsing pleasure.

I’m a life-long gardener who still to this day gets giddy at the thought of a trip to one of the local nurseries. Yes, I actually studied landscape and environmental horticulture and the practical experience I have garnered through the years has served me well. Childhood memories of chicken manure “tea” still float through my olfactory senses to this day. I have always been an organic gardener and always will be. From the Earth … To the Earth. I was born and raised in rural, bucolic Litchfield County, Connecticut and now joyfully live a few blocks from the ocean in beautiful Santa Barbara, California.
I love your posts about succulents and bromeliads! I bought some little guy few days ago (Echeveria) and I exactly thought how pot I will choose for. You have made this for me easier. Thank you. I´m from Czech Republic so our natural conditions are different from yours but your advice is always the best for me. Jana
Thank you so much Jana & greetings from Arizona! I’m glad you enjoyed the small pot round up – we love them all. Nell
