The 411 on Succulents

Succulents are touted as easy plants to take care of, but don't overlook these basic rules.

Succulents are touted as easy plants to take care of but if you find yourself trying to save your dying plants.  Here’s advice on how to keep them thriving.  Make sure they’ve got enough light! An office with no window or tucked away as bathroom décor simply won’t do.   Make sure you’re not over watering them and you can also add a small amount of fertilizer during the spring or summer months to help with growth.  While succulents are pretty hardy, few will survive temperatures which drop below freezing.  If you use them as décor on your porch or patio, it’s important to bring them indoors during the cold.   Finally, the soil matters!  Look for a brand that’s actually dedicated for those types of plants.
