How To Pick Indoor Succulents

Ready to start your adventure to plant parenthood? Don’t be overwhelmed by all your options – I’ve got some easy tips on how to start slowly so your plants help distress your space, not make you sweat!

Here is how to pick indoor succulents:

1. Set a budget

It’s easy to start splashing out cash on things like plants, furniture and art. We want our homes to be lovely and restful and inviting – that should be a priority, right?

Not so fast! Plant costs can add up fast when it comes to pots, food, and individual varieties. Just like the chips jingle, who can stop with just one? So set a budget at the outset, and do your best to maximize and prioritize your purchases.

2. Open your eyes and visualize

Buying plants without a plan isn’t a good idea. You may end up with succulents that are too large or too small or don’t group well together.

Take a good look at your space and think through where you want to add some greenery. If you want it on a high shelf, maybe choose something that has vines. If you want to line your pathway, maybe you want them to get larger as they go.

Don’t forget to factor in what you want the final outcome to look like. Make sure to leave space for your new plants to grow.

3. Take the leap!

You set a plan, you did the homework, now it’s time to buy yourself some plants! Don’t stress too much about the outcome. Succulents are pretty hardy as you learn to care for them, and if they don’t suit the space you planned for well, chances are there is a perfect spot waiting for them.

These succulents will add so much life and brightness to your space. So go ahead and pick a few – Chances are, you’ll soon be adding more!

In Conclusion

Are you excited to order some new indoor succulents for your home? I’ll bet you’ll be blown away by how all these different types of succulents can bring so much joy and light to your space, especially in interesting and unexpected combinations.

Once you’ve mastered how to care for succulents, you’ll feel like a houseplant pro! Just don’t blame me if you can’t stop adding baby plants to your decor! Good luck!
