The Secrets to Growing Indoor Succulents

Succulents are truly beautiful and mysterious. But truth must be told, succulents are not suitable for growing indoors. Certainly not for long. The vast majority of them anyway.

Originally succulents are desert creatures and therefore need direct sunlight to thrive. In addition, it is quite difficult not to water them and most of them wither from excess soil moisture. Most succulents do not survive the first year at home, but if they do, you are expected to have a stunning green tenant in your home.

So how can this beautiful plant be successfully grown at home?

First of all, succulents are suitable for houses with a balcony or with windows that allow direct sunlight. Succulents need at least an hour or two of direct sunlight every day.

Succulents do not need a lot of water. Try not to water them even if the soil looks dry and even if you think the succulent is thirsty. Some succulents need watering only once a month. It may sound too little, but it really is the ideal amount of water for some of them.

Fertilization is a great way to protect your succulents. Choose an ecological fertilizer without chemicals, and pamper your succulents once a year with quality fertilizer.
