It is pumpkin season and you know I love to add them to my home decor as much as I love to add them to the gardens.  In this post, I share a cute little ceramic pumpkin container I put together.  Find out the best plants to add to these and how to correctly pot them up.

Ceramic Pumpkin Planters

After planting up a real pumpkin early in the season I quickly realized I needed an update. The pumpkin used in the succulent design was quickly starting to breakdown after a few short weeks.  The key is to plant the live pumpkin up a few days before it is needed for decorations.  A quick search on Amazon shows there really aren’t too many ceramic pumpkin containers out there that are ideal for plants.  Containers need to have a hole in the bottom for drainage and they also need to be reasonably priced.  When  I spotted these ceramic pumpkins on Amazon I ordered right away.  In this video, I share how I created a cute little pumpkin planter you can give to friends or enjoy in your home.  You will find plant tips further down on this post.

The Ideal Plants for Ceramic Pumpkins

Recently I was shopping at Kroger and spotted a display of 1″ container succulents for $1! What a deal…. seriously!  However, the first thing I thought of was how these need to sell fast because frost is coming soon and these succulents in the display would not farewell.  Much to everyone’s surprise, I only brought home 3.  I KNOW RIGHT?!  Honestly, I am in the middle of moving my extensive collection of succulents and cactus indoors for the winter so I really didn’t have the time go shopping much less buy more plants.  Below are 3 plants I highly recommend for this style of ceramic pumpkin plantings.

Kalanchoe Blossfeldiana Plant is known to show off a bouquet of flowers for months indoors with little watering or light.  This plant is one of my favorites to use as first for newbies to indoor succulent gardening.

Kalanchoe Panda Plant also known as Donkey Ears (Kalanchoe tomentosa).  This is a soft, velvety species from Madagascar. “Tomentose”. It has a fuzzy coat that is to help it survive dry, sunny conditions.  Panda Plant is perfect for indoor gardening because you don’t need to water it until the soil gets completely dry.

Jade Plant is one of my favorites to use in this pumpkin ceramic container.  The plant does best surrounded by decorative rocks and goes months with little to no water even indoors.  I used a Crassula Ovata ‘Jade Plant’ in the video demo featured on this page.
