Perfect as a gift for those new to gardening who want to grow something, or as a way to introduce children to the wonderful world of plants, this collection of succulent plants is very forgiving and will tolerate more than the occasional bout of neglect. Succulents have evolved to survive with very little water, storing what they do get in their fleshy leaves, so are perfectly adapted to modern home living and are almost fuss-free!
Needing very little in the way of care, these succulent plants are the ideal houseplant for anyone whether they're experts or complete novices. Happy in a sandy compost, with plenty of light and a little water now and again, your succulent collection will thrive. Remember also that these are indoor varieties and will not tolerate the cold. If you're short on time but still want plants around you (after all, they do help clean the air in your home), then this is your solution! Slow-growing, they are the perfect for home decoration, especially when placed in a pretty pot on a bright windowsill.
Like cacti, they're ideal to get kids interested in gardening with their spiky shapes, just remember that they can be a bit sharp, so take care when handling them.
Supplied as a collection of 6 mixed plants* in 5.5cm nursery pots, ready to go on a windowsill near you now!
