The benefits of having plants in your home are numerous. From increasing the quality of air in your home to combating disorders like SAD, plants like succulents are a smart decorating choice – even for those with a less-than-green thumb. Which is probably why they’re more popular now than ever. 

As long as you’re careful and diligent about their water intake, Succulents can live in just about anything: teacups, teapots, vases, mason jars, pallets, metal trucks, treasure chest and more! But before you go crazy, it’s important take a crash course in how to take care of succulents.

Watering is key

Succulents are a dessert plant which means they do well in hot environments with plenty of sunshine and little water. However, depending on the amount of sunlight they’re receiving and the type of pot they’re in your succulent may need more or less water than normal. However, the rule of thumb is to water them once a week in the summer and once a month in the winter. 

Purchase the right type of succulents

Some are more adaptable to living inside than others. A good rule of thumb is to start with the green plants. The more green they are, the better they do inside. Other colors like blue and purple require more care to survive inside and generally do better outside.
