Be Savvy About Succulents

North American Precis Syndicate .

New York , NY .

(NAPSI)—Easy to care for, long lasting and more popular than ever, succulents are the plants that people are buying for themselves and giving as gifts to bring the beauty of nature inside.

Succulent plants have long made a thoughtful offering for a friend or relative whose thumb might be less than green. Succulents are drought resistant; their leaves, stems or roots are fleshier than those of other plants because of the presence of water-storing tissue. (Whether cacti are technically succulents is a matter of debate among botanists and horticulturists, but most people know that both can be watered less often than other plants.)

The succulent expert,, wants everyone to be able to enjoy having and taking care of one—or more—of these unique, on-trend delights. So it’s not only added several truly original products to its collection to meet the ever-increasing demand for succulent gifts, it’s fleshed out the succulent care-and-keeping content on its website.

Among the helpful information provides are these tips:

• Succulent plants are known for being low maintenance but they do still require periodic care and attention. Succulents soak up lots of water but they still get thirsty. When one feels dry to the touch, add water. Let the plant stand in the water for about 15 minutes, which should satisfy your succulent for a few weeks more.

• Succulents love as much light as possible. Fluorescent, LED, lamplight and natural light are all good.

• Succulents can handle a wide range of temperatures indoors but should not be kept near drafts from heating or air conditioner vents.

• Succulents extract nutrients from rainwater and the air, storing them in their leaves, so they don’t need a lot of extra nutrients, but they should be fertilized a few times a year, in the warmer months.
