Succulents 101- A Care Primer for Beginners

In this video we go over the basic but most important requirements succulents need including light, soil, the best containers to use, how to know when to water, and a few other essential tips to keeping your plants happy and multiplying.

You’ll also see several suggestions for my favorite beginner-friendly succulents – beautiful easy growers which propagate like champions too!

Knowing all of this will help you troubleshoot any issues you’re having as well as help prevent the most common problems with succulents.
