Caring For Your New Succulent

Posted by Christine Hannigan on

Indoor plants are the perfect way to make your house a home. Succulents are the perfect choice to decorate your home due to the easy, manageable care they require. Whether you've always had a green thumb or struggle to keep your plants alive succulents are the perfect choice for you.


1. Make Sure They Get Enough Light

Succulents love light and sun. 6-8 hours is ideal, however if you have a new succulent it may be best to slowly get them adapted to a long day in the sun.

2. Water Your Succulents

When watering succulents water soil directly, avoiding any water on the leaves. Soak the soil until water runs out of the drainage holes. If your container doesn't have drainage holes, use less water. 

3. Pot Your Succulents Correctly

When your succulent has grown out of its cup and needs to be repotted choose a container with drainage. Succulents need soil that drains, so regular potting soil - or dirt from you yard - won't do. Choose cactus soil or mix potting soil with sand, pumice, or perlite. Succulent roots are very fragile so be gentile when repotting.

 4. Keep Your Succulents Clean

Your succulents will gradually become dusty, so you will need to occasionally use a damp washcloth and gently go over your plants leaves.
