Succulents include a wide range of plants including cacti, which are native to dry regions of the world. These plants store water for long periods of time. Through extensive testing, LiveTrends has selected a variety of succulents that not only tolerate infrequent watering, but also low light levels making them the perfect easy-carce plant.
WATER: Allow plants to dry before watering. Don’t worry if plants become very dry, they will go slightly dormant without harm. Use approximately 2oz of water every two weeks.
LIGHT: Bright artificial light indoors or near a window without direct sun. In mild climates they can grow on an outside porch but no direct sunlight.
TEMPERATURE: These plants tolerate a wide range of temperatures from 40-90F. Do not allow to freeze and keep away from air conditioning or heating vents.
FERTILIZER: Balanced house plant food once per month at ½ strength during warm growing seasons (IMPORTANT be sure to water with clear water first since your plants will be dry)
