They are typically small and compact, although they come in various forms, tall, hanging, rosettes, and other designs.

Why Are Succulents the Best Plants?

Here are some of the reasons why are succulents the best plants to grow.

They Are Drought Resistant

Succulents are desert plants that have evolved over the years to be drought-resistant,21 surviving harsh arid climates with little moisture. Therefore, they make excellent plants for your home, serving as décor or ground cover regardless of the weather.

They Are Easy To Care For

Succulents are hardier than other plant species, hence easier to maintain. You only have to get the basics, like watering them occasionally and planting them in suitable soils, and they will thrive indoors or outdoors.

They Come in Beautiful Shapes

Plant lovers can attest that they love succulents because there are several shapes and sizes to choose from, and they are all exquisite. They also come in various colors, and some have stunning flowers; some species transform into different colors under full sunlight.6

They Thrive Everywhere

One of the impressive features of succulents is that they can be indoor or outdoor plants depending on their sizes. They can grow under a lightly shaded patio or full sunlight and are not needy like other species.

They Have Several Creative Uses

There are no limits to what you can do with succulents. They can be table centerpieces, decorations on your table, or lawns for landscaping or fencing.

Other species, like aloe vera, also have medicinal qualities, while others produce edible fruits.

How To Identify Types of Succulents

The simplest way to distinguish a succulent from other plants is by checking its leaf shape and general growth habit. They have fleshy leaves as an adaptive strategy to help them store moisture when there is little or no rainfall.

The presence of thick leaves is the best way to identify a succulent because other tree species don’t need the adaptation and instead have thin leaves. Another expected feature of succulents is their unique leaf shapes and additional features like spikes.

Many grow upright in rosette patterns or have rose-like leaves giving them an elegant look, perfect for use as indoor and landscaping plants. Also note that some species look similar even when they are not related, and you may have to tell them apart using their flowers and other physical features.

How To Care for Succulents

The best part about growing succulents in your home is that they don’t need much care, and you can keep yours alive even if you don’t have a green thumb. The following tips will help you care for any species.

  • Ensure that your plants receive enough sunlight for about six hours every day, even indoors, by planting them near windows.
  • While placing the planter near sunlight, chances are high that one spot receives more rays than the other. The best way to go is to frequently rotate the pot for even sun exposure.
  • Carefully water the succulent and avoid overdoing it, or the plant will rot. You can also provide moisture based on the season by providing more in the summer and less in winter.
  • When watering your succulent, ensure that you use more if there are drainage holes and less if there is no outlet.
  • Dust can hinder your plant’s growth, and it helps to wipe the leaves with a clean damp cloth or paintbrush.

How Often Should You Water Succulents?

There are generally two rules in matters of watering your succulents. Some do it only when the soil is bone dry to give the tree enough time to absorb the moisture from the ground.

(Image: keziaschen25)

Another group waters their plants every other week or once a month, depending on the season. However, the common ground is that you don’t have to water your desert plants frequently, or they may rot or develop complications.

Do Indoor Succulents Like Sun?

All succulents love sunlight since their natural habitat is in scorching, arid regions. Therefore, it is best to provide sufficient sunlight for your indoor plant by placing the pot under indirect or direct sun rays based on the species.

If you need help determining your plant’s needs, carefully observing it will give you a clue. For instance, appearing burned when placed in direct sunlight means that the heat is excessive and needs shade.

Benefits of Growing Succulents in Your Home

Growing succulents have a fair share of upsides, especially if growing indoors.

They Purify Your Air and Help You Breathe Better

Plants reduce the carbon dioxide, pollutants, and dust levels in the air, helping you breathe cleaner, purified air, which is advisable if you have respiratory issues.

They Increase Your Focus

Plants in your office or home help increase your concentration, making you more productive.

They Are Mood Boosters

Another advantage of having plants around is that they generally improve your mood. If you love nature and plants and surround yourself with the species you love, you get happier and never feel lonely.

They Spruce Up Your Space

Since succulents can grow anywhere, you can plant them in your home as décor. Hanging and flowering species work best indoors, while you can have the massive ones on your lawn.

They Help Increase Pain Tolerance

Studies show that patients have a higher pain tolerance when plants are in their rooms and need less pain relief medication.

Succulents are some of the most beautiful plants to grow indoors or in your yard or garden. They come in various designs, colors, and sizes, perfect for any plant lover.

You can go for the tiny species to place on your desk or the ones that grow massive for the outdoors.
