All About Succulents

Succulents are some of the most popular plants due to their ability to thrive with low maintenance – they store water in their leaves, stems, or roots. Since there’s so many different varieties, they also make for an awesome display.  This large plant species includes well-known varieties such as aloe and cacti, as well as some that are very much unknown. If you’re looking for a houseplant with minimal effort, succulents are the way to go! Here’s a few basic, general guidelines for growing top-notch succulents.
