Care Tips & Resources
Know It. Grow It.
1: Succulents are fairly inexpensive
If you kill one or two (or ten) you don't have to feel completely awful. You won't have lost a fortune, just a little green-thumb cred.
2: Succulents come in wondrous variety
Succulents and cacti come in a variety of shapes and sizes some are leafy and delicate; others are pudgy, round, spiky, fuzzy, and even multicolored and textures. It is easy to find a plant that will fit any style. Whether they stand-alone or are placed in combinations with other plants, they create a long-lasting statement in your space. Take a look at the most common types here, or totally geek out over every succulent ever here.
3: You can propagate
In other words, they can usually be propagated from cuttings make succulents from other succulents! Propagation allows you to take leaf and stem cuttings from the succulents you own and create new plants. This takes some trial and error, and patience, but it is magic to watch these babies grow.
4: Succulents are easy to care for.
They are low maintenance, little water and care are needed to help your succulent thrive. With ample light, airflow, and adequate drainage, your plants are set up for success.

5: They look so cute!
At least I think they do. In my opinion, succulents are far more adorable than ferns, ivy, mini palms, or bamboo’s. African Violets come in a close second in my book, but they can't front to succulents when it comes to looking sweet in any planter.
6. Succulents are eco-friendly
In times of drought and with a more conscious view of water conservation, succulents are an efficient gardening option. Succulents do not require a lot of water. In fact, too much water can cause more issues than less. Think of the money you will save your water bill
7. Plant them to your desire
Succulents can be planted in just about anywhere. Planting them in a garden? No problem. A wreath? Why not! Your shoes? You bet. The versatility of these plants are amazing, especially when used creativity. The world of succulents is your oyster.
