Succulent Care 101

Succulents are great for indoor container gardens and they require only a little bit of care. Succulents store water in their leaves so they are able to survive in extremely dry conditions. They still need regular watering to look their best, but they won’t wilt if you forget to water them. 

Fill your container with soil. If using just potting soil, be sure to add pumice or Perlite. It is easier to simply used pre-mixed cactus soil. Try Schultz Cactus, Palm & Citrus Potting Mix

After planting your succulents it is important to remove any dirt. A small paintbrush will work wonders because it can reach all of the small crevices. Succulents like well-drained soil, if using a bowl or pot you can let the soil go nearly dry between each watering.
