Welcome to the exciting world of succulents! The term denotes the plant's ability to hold water in its leaves. Succulents have taken the world by storm and become the trendiest plant around. Their success is owed to their array of colors, shapes, and textures.
Succulents are the perfect plant indoors on a window sill or outside in the sun. Their intriguing tones of silver and tinges of red bring contrast to the tradition green of most houseplants. Display your succulents in a colorful container garden to show off their impressive form.
They'll thrive, even with a bit of neglect.
Most houseplants get scorched by bright direct light, but your succulent loves the sunshine. Succulents prefer at least six hours of light per day, so place them outside or indoors near a south or east facing window.
When growing succulents indoors, start by assessing your indoor conditions. Your succulent wants to soak up all the sunshine it can get. You'll notice that your succulent will start to become leggy and stretch if it isn't receiving enough light.
The key to succulent success indoors is selecting a plant with lots of green foliage. The bounty of chloroplasts in green leaves will give your plant an extra energy boost for indoor gardening. Our #ProPlantPicks for indoor succulents include the dramatic Agave, the trusty Aloe, and the classy Jade plant.
Plant your succulent in a well-draining potting medium and allow the potting mix to dry thoroughly before watering. Succulents prefer unglazed pots so that the soil can dry out completely between waterings.
Like the rest of your indoor plants, succulents don't fare well in a cold, drafty spot. Keep your plant happy year round with lots of light and warmer temperatures.
