This post is an overdue follow up to this post.
So as you saw, succulents need proper drainage so the roots don't rot from sitting in water. I bought this tin planter covered in bark from the Container Store for $1.99 (the bark had fallen off so it was on clearance, nothing a little Gorilla Glue can't fix). I drilled one hole in the middle, used my rocks from the previous succulent set up on the bottom, then layered on soil and the plants.
To you, this is just a picture of green succulents. To me, it's a sign of rebirth. I was completely shocked when they came back to life as if they'd been hibernating. Seriously, don't throw out your succulents, they are amazingly resilient.
To catch any excess water, I used an upturned Tupperware top that lost it's matching bottom. Reduce reuse recycle people. It's relatively inconspicuous, but I'm looking for a more sophisticated approach.
