Greetings all,
I'm trying to sift through the kazillions of succulents to find ones that cascade and are shade tolerant, for hanging baskets indoors. Any suggestions?
May all be well and happy,

Welcome, buddhiarts.

I don't know the answer but I'm sure you'll get one and I'll be watching out of curiosity.

Do you want a basket of only cascading succulents?

Just note that as succulents, they do like bright light, not total shade, especially if you want to see them do some blooms.

I tried to reply here earlier. Hope it doesn't duplicate, but the original didn't show up. Probably failed to hit the 'finished' button. I think sedum 'Ogon' might be a good candidate. The photo of it spilling out around the Croton 'Petra' was taken after it spent the winter in the bathroom where it got indirect light for a few months. It did well.

You can also try some hoyas that have succulent leaves, and also some schlumbergera hybrids.
