what nice little succulent would I use?

klyde(8)March 5, 2013


I bought a small yixing creamer (rummage sale) that I intended to use for a small succulent or cactus. My son accidentally chipped the edge.

I was in the market for a small succulent that would have a not-too-aggressive root system. Now I'm in the market for one that has the above and trails a bit so I can hide the chip. I would sure appreciate some suggestions...most things I can think of are gonna grow out of the pot really quickly.

I'm assuming this is some kind of china or porcelain & has no hole in the bottom of the creamer, right? Are you planning on drilling a hole in the bottom? If not, there will likely be drainage issues, especially for succulents, just so you know.
