Almost any plant can be grown in a container. However, there are many considerations that often lead to practical choices for our landscapes and gardens. The most restrictive condition to address is the limited volume of soil to sustain plants. Small soil volume limits the amount of moisture and nutrients available to most plants and usually restricts their potential size.
Succulent plants that can store moisture in their stems and leaves, and often do best in containers. This is particularly true during warm summer conditions that easily causes moisture depletion and drought stress on a daily basis. In comparison, non-succulent plants are more susceptible to wilting, loss of foliage and stem dieback when moisture stress occurs in containers. These plants can require daily watering during the warm months and when in sunny exposures to sustain strong flowering and good foliage character.
