Dollar Tree Candle Holders as Succulent Pots

As you all may know, I love plants, especially succulents. They're actually my go to gift to give to co-workers, family, friends, neighbors, teachers, etc.

I wanted to share another option where I find pots or in this case these are actually ceramic candle holders from Dollar Tree for just $1 each. It's the perfect size to fit a couple succulents in.

I purchased the last four. I will be back when they restock to buy a couple more to save.

There are other awesome finds at Dollar Tree. I would highly recommend checking out their garden, glass, and floral section for inspiration.

Other succulent planter options:

- Mason jars
- tin baskets

Great idea; those little white votive holders are perfect pots for holding succulents on the windowsill. I'll be checking my DT tomorrow to see if they have any. Thanks for sharing!

They are nice. I'm wanting to put potted plants where I really don't have room, like a tiny bathroom. These filled with succulents would be great.


Now, these don't have drain holes, and succulents need excellent drainage. Maybe in another post, you can tell us what medium you use and some general watering instructions.

I use 1/2 perlite and 1/2 soil.

You could put the plants into a plastic pot with drainage then into a nice pot.

Another option for pots without drainage - you could drill a hole with a diamond bit.

Or some I do keep the pots as is without the drainage (if they don't have it) and I use good soil plus water less. I spray them well instead, every 3-4 weeks.
