Succulent-

Any plant that has thickened parts to help retain water.

Succulents are low maintenance. They make the perfect gift and are suited to most homes.

Water-

Succulents store water in their leaves, which helps them survive with limited watering. 

Before watering, check the soil. If it is still damp, you do not need to water it. If it is dry, add water, but make sure to not get any on the leaves, which can lead to root rot. Carefully tip out the excess water. Allow to the soil to dry out completely between each watering.

Soil-

When repotting, use a coarse potting mix with good drainage. 

You can also mix in perlite for added drainage.

Lighting-

Succulents need at least 6 hours of sunlight each day. If you have just potted a new succulent direct sunlight can burn the leaves, so slowly introduce them to direct sunlight. 

Make sure to turn your pot to help all sides of the plant get the amount of sunlight it needs.

When weather permits- take your plants outside so they can get some fresh air!
