‘Succulents are plants with parts that are thickened, fleshy and engorged, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions.’ They are found on every continent, and even though people often believe they are accustomed to the viciously dry weather that is not true. On the other hand, they can survive where other plants can’t, and they can even thrive in dry conditions, lasting up to two years without water if they adapt well to the surroundings. As you know, we use them as ornamental plants in our homes and offices. They need much much less water and their unusual forms are always interesting to see as decoration. What these plants do need is light! A lot of light that shines on all parts of the plants so it could grow straight. Fall and winter are the sleeping times for succulents, and at that time they need extremely little water. Spring and Summer is when they come back dancing and watering them becomes more regular. Just remember overwatering is a very bad thing and dusting off these plants is important! Those are the most often mistakes succulent lovers tend to forget, so keep your plant friends clean and happy.
