3 easy steps to care for succulents

1. Only Water Once Every 2 Weeks

Cactus and succulents only need to be watered once every two weeks. Simply touch the soil. If the soil is dry, completely drench the soil. After, wait for the soil to dry out again and repeat!

2. Remember Light Matters

As a general rule it is important to remember that colorful succulents need more sunlight than green succulents. Green succulents are great for places inside with very little to no light or outside in the shade. Green succulents will also do great on the windowsill. Colorful succulents need a little more sunlight. Colorful succulents thrive on the windowsill or outside in an area that receives sunlight for at least half the day.
