1. Succulent care is fairly easy. Succulents are hardy and require very little maintenance. If indoors, keep them in the brightest spot available, otherwise they will get stretchy. Light is one of the most important things to keep them healthy. They need at least 4-6 hours of morning light if outdoors, and about 6 hours of the brightest light available if indoors.

2. Succulents don’t mind being packed in tightly together in an arrangement. It slows down their growth rate so they won’t outgrow their container very quickly.

4. For a succulent arrangement, I recommend using a container with a drainage hole for water to escape so you don’t get root rot happening. If you plan on having an arrangement for just a short while in a bowl with no drainage hole, you may want to line the bowl first with plastic before adding your soil. After adding the soil, just trim off the top edges of the plastic showing and cover with decorative pebbles, moss or sand.

5. Succulents prefer a lighter soil that’s faster draining with more aeration. Regular potting soil is too heavy and holds too much moisture.

6. Succulents require very little water. They only need watering about once every 1-1/2 to 2 weeks. But check sooner to be sure. They retain water within themselves for several days. With watering, allow the soil to dry between watering. Fertilize about once per month.
