Growing succulents indoors can be a bit tricky. However, with these simple tips, you’ll be able to better care for your indoor succulent collection. As cute as they are, succulents don’t always make the best indoor house plants. But, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t grow them! This post will teach you exactly how to grow beautiful, healthy succulents indoors.
Not Watering Them Enough
The Chihuahuan Desert gets a little over 9 inches of rain annually — a drop in the bucket compared to what the verdant landscapes most of us call home to receive. In the desert, however, when it rains, it pours. To make your own desert-dweller happy, try to emulate the rainfall patterns native to its home habitat. Don’t treat your cacti with a trickle; turn on the taps and let loose a deluge.
All succulents (and all plants for that matter) benefit from a complete soaking until water comes out of the bottom of the pot. For succulents, wait until the soil is bone dry — and then some — to water again.
