Succulents are perfect for beginners since they store water in their leaves. Meaning, if you don’t water it, it will still live on! This plant is very self sufficient, even the chalky substance on a succulent leaf, called Epicuticular Wax, serves a purpose. This chalk protects the leaf from too much UV, prevents the leaf from loosing moisture, and deters insects from walking on them and laying eggs. Great plant to be placed indoors or outdoors! We love that it cascades and can be propagated.

The Dirt

Native to Africa and South America. The name, succulent, is derived from the Latin word sucus which means juice or sap. This is directly linked to their leaves which are filled with nourishment to ensure the health of the overall plant. Because of the sap these do not need to be fertilized or watered very often, thus making them easy to maintain. Succulents like to be planted in soil that is grainy and they can be planted together well. Succulents can be propagated by cutting a piece from the main plant. It requires little effort, just place the leaf on top of the soil and baby roots will begin to grow, then you can plant it, usually take around 2-3weeks.

Part Sun


This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Low


Water every three weeks. Let soil dry up before watering. Feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry, wait two days. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.


Pet Friendly


Yay! This plant is not toxic to our furry friends (regardless, you don’t want them to chew on this beauty).

Care Tips

Generally if a leaf looks yellow and bloated, it can mean that you are overwatering it. If there are pieces that are brown, you might not be watering it enough or it needs to be repotted. Either way, remove anything brown or yellow
