HOW TO CARE FOR SUCCULENTS

Succulents (plants like cacti and aloe) grow in warm, arid regions and so are commonly thought to be low-maintenance plants. While their water-storing properties allow them to survive in harsh conditions, they still require periodic care and attention, especially if not growing in their natural habitat. Here are some tips on how to properly care for your succulent plants, whether they live inside or out.

OUTDOOR SUCCULENT CARE

Like most plants, succulents require sun, water and ideal temperature conditions to grow and thrive. They are hardy; however, and many varieties can survive outdoors no matter the season or temperature. They can make hardy groundcovers, pretty patio accents and focal points, as well as natural barriers, such as a living fence or hedge.
