Where to Find Succulents?
With the rising of their popularity, many more nurseries are starting to carry them. They can be found in warm areas, for the majority of the year. Colder areas are starting to carry succulents as well, but the quality varies greatly depending on the time of year.
Fortunately, the great thing is that there are tons of succulents for sale online!
Succulents need specific care because they need to be placed in a bright area of the house, but without direct sunlight, because during the hottest part of the day the sun will kill them off.
They don’t need to be watered often, so during the summertime, it should be at least once a week, while during the winter, water them once a month. Pay attention to the topsoil, and why it is dry, then you should water it. They are very sensitive to overwatering, but on underwater as well, which means that setting a reminder for watering them will be of great help.
Succulents succeed well in a cactus mix soil, which is abrasive and drain fast.
However, each succulent has different needs when it comes to lighting, temperature, and water. For that reason, it is necessary to know differences for any type of succulents, which will help to keep them alive easier. Now there is the specific care information for individual varieties, which are specified in the Succulents ID Cards.
