    Something that likes dryish soil. Terracotta dries out much more quickly than plastic.

    Depends what you want it do do - do you want something that looks good all year round?

    And is this plant to go anywhere in particular - on a patio or terrace or front porch?

  • I would also suggest that you mix in some water retaining crystals to help it from drying out.If it is in a nice sunny possition maybe a lavender would be ok with some trailer with it.
