Succulents make for good house plants. They are generally accommodating and resilient and can grow under average home conditions.
These beautiful plants require either filtered sunlight for the majority of the day or two hours of bright, direct sunlight each day when outside. Inside, Succulents prefer bright light, which is usually found in a south facing window. Succulents love to be outside in the summer. They want the warmth and fresh air.
As a general rule of thumb, Succulents should be watered more frequently during their biggest growth period. For most, this occurs between March and October. We recommend giving them a good watering once a week. During their dormant months, you should only need to water these ladies every one to two weeks. Let the soil dry out completely before watering again. A Succulent should never be allowed to sit in water! You will know if your gal has been overwatered if the leaves appear to be soft and discolored. Alternatively, you will know if she has been underwatered if she has stopped growing and shedding her leaves. Please note that some succulents grow at different times than others, therefore requiring a different watering schedule.
Believe it or not, Succulents are much more cold-tolerant than many people assume. As in the desert, these creatures thrive in colder nights. Ideally, Succulents prefer daytime temperatures between seventy and eighty five degrees Fahrenheit and nightime temperatures between fifty and fifty five degrees Fahrenheit.
