Are ceramic pots good for succulents?

Are glazed pots bad for succulents?
If the soil you are using has bark, peat, mulch or other organic matter in it in large amounts, a glazed pot will hold the moisture. (Some of your desert plants will also grow crappy roots, but that is a story for another day.) If you soil is mostly mineral, glazed pots are fine.
Do succulents like to be crowded?
As a rule, succulent plants do not mind crowding whether the plants are grouped in one container or are alone and fully filled out in the container. Transplanting a plant that has filled its container will generally allow the plant to experience a new spurt of growth.
Why are terracotta pots bad?
Yes, terracotta pots are safe and suitable for vegetable gardening but thoroughly sterilize the pots before planting. Since terracotta is porous, it tends to absorb harmful chemicals or moisture. This way, it can contaminate the soil and present food safety issues.
Do succulents like small pots?
Usually, novice gardeners give their succulents plenty of space to grow, which leads to a healthier plant. Your succulent may survive in a large pot, but such space does not encourage healthy growth. While roots are more prone to rot in damp soil, pots with small amount of soil will not hold excess moisture.
Can succulents stay in small pots?
Mini succulents can stay in small pots anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, or even years. Simply take it out of the pot and repot in a larger container. If you don’t feel like repotting the entire plant, you can trim the plant to keep it small and take little pieces to propagate and grow elsewhere.
Can succulents be planted in pots without drainage holes?
