Succulents are actually a family of plants that what they have in common is fleshy leaves that retain a great amount of water. But it’s not only the leaves that store this necessary hydration, also its roots and stems retain water as well. This is a very important feature to be able to survive in inhospitable conditions, and that virtue is what makes them ideal for placing them outdoors or indoors.
The most essential thing in having a succulent is to place it in a space with lots of light. Even though some varieties don’t support direct intense sunlight, most feel comfortable with natural light. They support any temperature, however hot it may be. It’s important not to water them to much, once a month in winter and with more frequency in summer. It’s important that the soil is not excessively wet and that the roots are not swamped. With minimum care, the plant will provide us its unconditional support.
