SUCCULENTS  --  Photo Page

There are a wide variety of plants that fall into the succulent category. Succulents are usually considered to be plants with fleshy leaves that can store water. Included are Aeoneum, Agave, Aloe, Jade, Echevaria, Haworthia, Kalanchoe, String of Hearts, and String of Pearls. 

TEMPERATURE: Generally speaking, succulents prefer average household temperatures from spring through fall with a cool (50°) winter. These plants also like a 10-15° degree difference between night and day temperatures.

LIGHT: They like plenty of light so a sunny windowsill is perfect. A few should not get any direct sun. Check the specifics on your plant for further care instructions.

WATER: During warm weather, water more often and decrease watering during the winter to monthly for some varieties. Misting is not required, however during the summer, your succulents will appreciate fresh air from an open window.

Assorted succulents are readily available in 3" and 4" pots. Occasionally, some varieties are available in 6" pots.
