Our REVIVE Program is here to help.
In botany, succulent plants, also known as succulents or sometimes fat plants, are plants having some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions.
The word "succulent" comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning juice, or sap. Not to be confused with catus; nearly all cacti are succulents but not all succulents are cacti.
SUCCULENT PLANT Care Guide
Indoor succulents require bright light to part sun exposure and should be kept in a warmer location away from open doors and windows during colder months. Avoid intense, direct sunlight until your plant has acclimatized to its new environment.
Succulents are very easy to care for, and as they are drought tolerant, they can survive (but not flourish) for several weeks at a time without water.
Although all of our planters contain rock for drainage, water only when soil is dry to the touch and provide enough water to make the soil wet, but not soggy. If you are unsure, play it safe and wait a week more before watering. Less is best!
Water approximately every 2 weeks during the warmer months, every 3-4 weeks during the cooler months. Always water the soil directly. Avoid getting water on the plant, as water can sit in the leaves and potentially rot it.
Over time, it is normal for older leaves to turn brown and/or shrivel up. Simply pinch them off and look to the centre of the plant for new growth.
