Simple tips to keep succulents alive anywhere in the world

For some people, growing succulents is a breeze. For others, it's a daily struggle. Either way, this guide will teach you the essential components to find success growing succulents in less than ideal circumstances. 

Not all succulents will grow well in every climate. Find out information about individual succulent types and select plants with light and water needs that match your area.

Pick the right plant

In humid areas, soil plays a major role in preventing rot. On the other hand, in dry environments the right soil can help prevent succulents from drying out too quickly. 

Tweak your soil materials

Terra cotta is a great choice if you're just starting out, because it's very porous, allowing more air flow to the roots. If you live in a very hot, dry environment, though, terra cotta may not be the best choice. Ceramics are generally a good option for most climates.  

Choose a great pot

Plants die, and that's just a part of the learning process. Try to take a lesson from each dead plant, so you can take care of your next one even better!
