  • What is the best soil for succulents?

    Created by shirley mitchell on

    I was told to use 1 part sand in my soil for jade plants and cactus. Is this ok?

    Hi Shirley,

    If you are mixing your own cactus/succulent mix, I would recommend 3 parts potting soil, 2 parts sand, and 1 part perlite. Or check out our Black Gold Cactus Mix (link below).


    Hope it helps!
