Technically Speaking: Succulents

25 Jun

Definition: Succulent plants are water-retaining plants adapted to arid climates.

Do you suffer from a brown thumb? If so, succulents might be the plants for you. Because they are indigenous to desert-like climates, succulents are very easy to care for, tolerating poor soil, little watering and full sun or light shade.

Lately, I’ve been fascinated by succulent plants. They come in such beautiful shades of greens and purples. They are also incredibly sculptural. I especially love when these plants are used in living wall art, wreaths, terrariums or center pieces.

Succulents are sold at your local nursery, farmer’s market or online. Etsy shop Succulents Galore have some incredible plants and arrangements. Some of the shop’s pictures are featured below.
