Succulents need good draining soil. For container planting you can purchase cactus soil or incorporate sand, gravel or volcanic rock for better drainage. The container you are planting in should have a drainage hole.

Most succulents need very little fertilizer. Watering with a well balanced fertilizer once a month will be all they need.
