5 Easy Caring Tips for Succulents

Adding plants to your home decor does not have to be intimidating. Consider adding succulents. They can be a really low maintenance plant that looks great year round! We carry a wide range of succulents and love to share care tips.
5 Easy Care Tips:
  1. Water Less - Give them a good soak once a week. During the winter months once every two weeks. Put in enough water to just get the soil damp. The same thing goes for a container without a drainage hole.
  2. Well Drained Soil - Make sure your succulents are in well draining soil, so the roots can completely dry out between waterings.
  3. Non-Drainage holes - If planting in a non-draining container, be sure they have plenty of room at the bottom of the container for drainage. Filled the bottom of the container with stones before adding soil mixture.
  4. Lots of Sunlight - To grow happy and healthy succulents, they need lots of light. Beware that during the summer, they can get "sunburn" (brown/black spots on the leaves) when in intense sunlight. The ideal condition is indirect light..
  5. Creative Containers - Succulents can be displayed in very creative planting containers. It just needs to be minimum of 3" deep. So let your imagination go wide.
