Caring for Succulents

Succulents have been gaining in popularity for several years now in the home decor landscape.   These easy to care for and colorful plants are great for adding a little greenery to your outdoor or indoor space.

Here are a few tips for helping your succulents thrive!

Sunlight-  They prefer to have at least half a day’s worth of sunshine so make sure they are placed in a well-lit area.

Water- Surprisingly these plants need very little water.  Just water when the soil becomes dry.

Soil- These plants love soil that drains well.  If you can use cacti soil, which you can find in the gardening section of many home improvement centers.  It is recommended to add crushed gravel to the bottom of the pot to make sure roots do not sit in water.

Fertilizer- Add a small amount of general purpose fertilizer to water once a month.

That’s it!  Enjoy!   These make great hostess gifts as well!
