Succulents, known for their moisture-storing capacity, have evolved to survive hot environments. In general, the surrounding temperature should fall somewhere between 40 and 95 degrees F. They should be watered every 2 – 3 weeks. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. In the wintertime, you will need to water them less often. Overwatering can lead to leaf loss, misshapen leaves, root rot, and yellow leaves.

Most thrive with about 3 to 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Occasionally, too much sunlight can cause scorch marks and brown spots. With too little light, the plant may stretch its leaves outward.

These drought-resistant desert-dwellers are versatile and come in a variety of sizes, colors, and shapes. Be sure to research your specific succulent variety to provide the care it needs.

Remember not to over-water.


If you are looking for an easy-to-care-for house plant, Ceropegia woodii is an excellent choice. Similar to String of Hearts, its cousin, String of Spades has a fast-growing, trailing habit. It adds beauty to hanging baskets, pots, and other indoor containers. Its green, spade-shaped succulent leaves are decorated with delicate, cream-colored veins. Lantern-shaped flowers bloom in the late summer and fall.

String of Spades will flourish with indirect sunlight and regular watering. Plan to water once a week, but do allow the soil to dry out between waterings. This will help prevent root rot. Bonus: This houseplant is easy to propagate! Just trim off a piece of the stem and allow it to root in a cup of water.
