Sure, it looks all wrong. But what really is the problem?
As a certified master of succulent plants like Jades and such, I’m going to give away one secret, then another.
The first secret: Bottom Watering is ideal. The succulents seem to prefer sucking up the good ole H2O from below, so I’m constantly filling tubs and pots that I can set my plants in for a nice soak. Secret #2:
I think that most all houses have at least one persistent standing body of water that any succulent plant would think is just fine. Hell, the dog likes it good enough. (disclaimer: Oscar is not nor has he ever been a toilet drinker. Not that I know of. Not that I could prove.)
