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-care plant.
WATER: Allow soil to dry between watering. Succulents can tolerate very dry conditions. Do not allow standing water in the pot or tray.
LIGHT: Display in bright artificial light or near a window in indirect sunlight. In mild climates, succulents can grow on an outside porch without 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 and heating vents.
FERTILIZER: Apply balanced houseplant food once every other month at ½ strength during warm growing seasons.
