Indoor Decor with Succulents

There aren’t a lot of arguments against keeping succulents. These are the kind of plants which are perfect for small places and indoor decorating, as they don’t grow much, which means they can easily sit on a desk or window sill, as they won’t take up much space. 

Succulent plants grow anywhere. They thrive with minimum fuss, flourish with little care and grow in small amounts of soil and the maximum amount of sunshine. Better still, they require very little moisture. The best part is very few pests and diseases bother succulents.

Choosing the right succulent and the right pot can pretty up a balcony, deck, porch, pool area, terrace or even a windowsill. Concentrate on the smooth-leafed succulents for your garden such as Echeveria, Aeonium, Crassula, Sempervivum, Sedum, Agave and Cotyledons. Arrange them into artistic designs — planting many of the same variety will create a sweep of colour like a painting and will be more visually effective. Focus on harmonising colours, not clashing ones, and you will create a tranquil collection pleasing to the eye.

Growing succulents is very easy! Here are some tips for maintaining them :
  • Give succulents as much sun as possible. Succulents are desert plants. They thrive in hot places with plenty of sunshine.
  • They'll need a shallow dish with a bit of dirt to sprout in. Once they're big enough you can transplant them into a pot as a house plant or straight outdoors if your climate permits.
  • Persistently wet soil will quickly spell death for succulents, as their stems will rot away at the base. Avoid this by planting in well-drained soils, crevices, pots, and mounded garden beds.
  • Give succulents room to breathe indoors. In outdoor settings, succulents can do well in crowded compositions, but if you’re hoping for succulents to survive in lower indoor light, it’s best to space them apart so that a maximum amount of sunlight can reach them

The first lot of succulents that I ordered were not so good , maybe they were not handled well during transportation.Most of them withered away.

But the second lot simply made my day.They are the healthiest succulents that I have come across, very well packed and timely delivered.
