This free PDF guide tells you 10 Easy to Grow Succulents and where to buy them

Welcome! I'm so glad you're here!

Choosing succulents to grow can be a very fun, yet overwhelming task. 

Many people decide to buy succulents because they are “hard to kill” and “anyone can grow them”. While this can be true, some people find themselves killing off every succulent they own. 

Often this is due to over watering, other times it’s from complete neglect. While many succulents can handle complete neglect, most still need to be properly taken care of to survive and thrive.

Simply click the button below to get this free PDF and find out about 10 great succulents to grow when you're just starting out. You'll also get a few emails from me with tips for growing healthy succulents.

Wondering who I am?

Let me introduce myself... My name is Cassidy Tuttle and I’m a professional photographer turned succulent addict. These are my two sweet children and wonderful husband in the photo with me!

My adventure with succulents started with three small plants on the window sill of my basement apartment. Within a year I had propagated them and purchased more, totaling over 100 plants!

It’s been a fun adventure since then as I’ve drowned, burned, frozen, and starved my collection of succulents. This site is where I teach you how to avoid all those mistakes I made or help you recover from them.

While I’ve killed plenty of succulents in the last few years, I’ve also kept hundreds alive and thriving, and I know you can do the same!

Did I mention I wrote the book on succulents?

It’s true! I’m the author of Idiot’s Guides: Succulents which is designed to help those of us who love succulents (but are limited to growing on our window sills and porches) keep our succulents looking great.

You can purchase my book through my Amazon affiliate link here or pick it up at your local Barnes and Noble.

If printed books aren’t your thing, I’ve also written several ebooks about succulents on various topics including indoor growing, watering and propagating. You can check those out on this page.

My goal is to help you not just keep your succulents alive, but help them thrive no matter where you live.

Whew! That’s a lot of stuff!

I’m impressed you’ve made it this far down. You should probably be rewarded for that…
