Succulents hold an original aesthetic design to them that everyone’s gotta know and love. The symmetry or assume try people in (especially me and my family). I've got some good news for you… They’re low maintenance! Depending on the succulent, they don't need much water or sunlight, so here in Washington, it's the perfect place to take care of your indoor plant. You can go to the store or your local plant nursery and pick them out yourself. In my case I chose what we like to call a Sedum, so that’ll be the main focus for the caring aspect of this segment.
As long as you have a container that drains out water from the bottom, you’re all set! Since succulents don't need much water, there has to be a way for the water to escape. When the water DOES escape, you want to make sure you have yet another container underneath, so the water doesn't get everywhere. Unless you like to clean up the water and have a mess, then fine by me!! You don't need expensive soil or fertilizer for these kinds of plants because they don't require many fancy things in their lives. I wish it were that easy for the human population. Plants live the simple life.
For Sedum plants, the best part about watering is you barely have to!! If you have a lot going on in your life, I highly recommend choosing a Sedum succulent because you only have to water them once a week. When you water them, make sure you give enough water that they're moist, not drenched. Be generous with the amount you give them, and they'll be generous back by beautifying your room.
