A container garden is the ultimate accessory for your porch, patio, or doorstep. These plants will keep you in style, even in the shade
With drooping, pencil-thin stems in sections that look like grains, this tropical succulent is a great plant for hanging containers in the mildest of climates. It needs full to part shade, plus well-drained soil. Keep water even during spring and summer, but don’t allow plants to sit in standing water. Cut back on water from the fall through winter, as this is the plant’s dormant season. During this time, water just enough to keep the plant from shriveling. This plant can survive in outside temperatures of 60 degrees or higher.
