I love succulents, there's an incredible variety out there and they have some of the most beautiful shapes, colors, and flowers found in nature. Cool project.

Thanks everyone!!

 

We've tried to pick the ones which look a little like macroalgae and corals.  I feel the sea turtle helps reinforce this, versus just being a desert theme.

 

Last year we used cactus soil, which didn't work out as well.  I think it provided too much drainage and the plants didn't get enough water.  This year we went back to regular potting soil.

My personal blend is 20% pine mulch, 25% pea gravel, 35% topsoil, 20% potting soil. Works great for tropicals and for most succulents/orchids. Just throw a bit of ironite  around the plants before watering every 6 months or so.
