How To Take Care of your Succulent


When succulents are indoors it’s often hard for them to get enough sunlight. They generally need about 6 hours of bright, INDIRECT sunlight each day.

You will want to place your succulents near a window that gets light all day. If this isn’t an option, place your succulents near the brightest window or brightest area of your home or office. You’ll want to keep your plants as close to the window as you can. In rare cases a succulent can actually get sunburned if the light from the window gets too hot. This tends to happen most with south facing windows in the summer.



Soak & Dry Method

It’s a big deal! Succulents need a surprising amount of water to thrive. However, they don’t like to be watered as frequently as most indoor plants. But, I wouldn’t go so far as to say succulents rarely need water.

So… here’s the deal…

Succulents like to have their roots soaked with water but then dry out quickly. Then, watered again after the soil has been dry for a few days.

Lightly spraying succulents with water can help them survive for a period of time, but if you really want to thrive, they need to follow the “Soak & Dry”method.

Don’t water indoor succulents daily. That’s the quickest way to kill them.
