Planting and caring for succulents is a simple way to introduce children to the joys of gardening. Here are a some of the tips for happy, healthy succulents that we picked up at The Home Depot Succulent Workshop…
- Water Less
Too much water is definitely a bad thing! It is critical to remember this when it comes to succulents—refer to the care and instructions included with your specific plant. If you get stuck, you can always head over to your local Home Depot for a quick pow-wow with one of their gardening experts!
- Proper Soil
Succulents need well-draining soil to ensure that they fully dry out between watering. This can be done by mixing in something light and porous with regular soil or by using a succulent-specific mix found at your local Home Depot.
- Plenty of Sun
Succulents need plenty of sun to grow, but they tend to sunburn when placed outside in direct summer sunlight. When placed indoors, put them somewhere where they’ll receive plenty of bright sunlight for most of the day. When placed outdoors, they’ll need a little bit of shade so they can stay relatively cool.
My husband and I have fond memories of this succulent from a trip we took to Mexico years ago. An absolute essential for any succulent garden!
This tiny, heart-shaped jewel was a favorite with the kids. We were excited to learn that this little guy will actually multiply and grow more love!
My boys hand-picked this succulent because it looked like a tiny jungle in a pot. They instantly envisioned the LEGO adventures they could create by sticking minifigs along the bell-shaped petals.
