With their low-maintenance nature, affordable price point, and Instagram-worthy appearances, it's no mystery why succulents became so trendy"

Although it's true that succulents are a maintenance plant there are specific requirements that need to be considered to keep them alive and thriving!

Succulent Care & Maintenance: 

Light: Full Sun or Partial Shade
Succulents are sunbathers and require ideally six hours of sun per day.

Water: Allow soil to dry between watering, then water thoroughly until water seeps out of drainage holes. Ensure the pot has adequate drainage. 

You will notice that succulents need more water in their period of growth during spring and summer. Test the soil with your finger, when the top 1.25" is dry, it's time to water. Do not use a spray bottle as misting can cause brittle roots and mouldy leaves. 

Soil: Succulents need soil that drains, so regular potting soil—or dirt from your yard—won’t do. Choose cactus soil or mix potting soil with sand, pumice, or perlite. Succulent roots are very fragile so be gentle when repotting.

Fertilizer: Succulents don’t require much fertilizer, but light feedings during the spring and summer with Water soluble 20-20-20 would be ideal. 

Maintenance: Heat and drought tolerant. When watering, water the soil. Avoid direct overhead watering. Bring indoors during winter months. Rotate the plant often to ensure an even growth as succulents will lean towards the sun. 

Growth: 1-7" tall | 1-5" wide
