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 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: 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 per month at ½ strength during warm growing seasons. Be sure to water the plant with clean water before feeding with fertilizer.
