Any type of all purpose potting soil for indoor plants will work as the base to make your own succulent soil. Use whatever you have on hand (as long as it’s fresh, sterile potting soil ). Succulents need a well draining potting soil, not one that holds moisture.
How deep should I plant succulents?
Yes. Succulents have shallow roots and do not require very deep pots with a ton of soil to grow. In fact, succulents prefer a somewhat shallow pot, or just enough soil to encourage the roots and the plant to spread out.
