Succulents are a very popular plant with their gorgeous shapes and colors as well as their drought tolerant qualities, but not everywhere is the ideal place for them to grow. These tips will help you keep your succulents alive no matter where you live!
Welcome! I’m glad you’re interested in growing succulents!
You’re here because you love succulents, but you’re not sure if you can grow them where you live.
I totally understand!
But, I’m convinced anyone can grow succulents, wherever they live, and I’m going to give you the guidelines you need to do just that.
As this blog has grown over the past few years I’ve begun to realize how many people want to grow succulents but don’t have the perfect growing conditions for them. This shouldn’t surprise me since I belong in that group of people! I’ve answered lots of emails from you with various questions about growing succulents.
My goal with this website is to help you grow succulents no matter where you live.
For some, growing succulents is a breeze. For others, it’s a daily struggle. This post will help you make growing succulents a breeze.
When people say that succulents are hard to kill, I cringe a little. Like all plants, you need to know how to care for succulents in order to keep them alive. Sure, they can be very forgiving and are often easy for people to keep alive, but in parts of the world (or in parts of your home) people have to fight to keep them alive.
The tips I share with you in this post will help you figure out what you need to do to make succulents work for you, and hopefully make them easy to care for!
If you take away one thing from this article, let it be this: don’t be afraid to experiment! So much of the information I share with you is based on research I’ve done and then backed up by my own experience. I’m always trying new things with my plants or trying out new plants. I realize that succulents can be expensive depending on where you live, but if you’re willing to be brave and experiment you’ll have much better success growing succulents.
While succulents have the same basic needs, not every home or growing environment is the same. You need to adapt those guidelines based on where you live, how much natural light you have available, the pot and soil you are using. All of these factors contribute to the health of your succulent. What works for me here in Utah won’t necessarily work for someone in China. So take the basic guidelines for growing succulents and adjust them to where you live.
