5 Essential Tips to Grow Happy, Healthy Succulents

Proper succulent care can be easy as long as you know a few basics. The tips in this post, as well as those linked at the end, will help ensure your succulents live a long happy life! 

Succulents like to have their soil soaked and then dry out before watering again. Don't use a spray bottle. Completely drench the soil when you water!

Water More, But Less Often

Succulents don't like to sit in wet soil, so having a gritty mix that drains well is crucial. Look for soils with large particles to ensure your succulents don't rot. 

Well Draining Soil

If your plant starts to get really tall with a lot of space between leaves it is stretching out trying to find more light. If you notice this, try to move your plant where it will get more light throughout the day. 

Lots of Sunlight

Propagating is easy and so much fun to see the tiny new plants growing. Plus, if your supply of succulents is constantly growing it is fun to start giving them to other people!
