How to Take Care of Succulents

Because of their unique ability to retain water, succulents tend to thrive in warm, dry climates and don’t mind a little neglect. This makes them well adapted to indoor growing and ideal for people desiring low-maintenance houseplants. Many people think that all succulents are cacti but this is not the case; however, all cacti are succulents.

These strong, resilient plants work best in environments that get bright light, such as a windowsill or a glass door, or under a skylight. All you have to do is water these plants with a spray bottle, and wipe down with a paper towel if dusty. While growing, cacti and succulents should be watered at least once a week.

During each watering, give the soil a refreshing soak, and all the water to run out of the ‘drainage holes’ of the pots. Watch them grow and lift the mood of the room as well as the guests’ spirits.
