Do you have a green thumb? Or not? While many people love looking at flowers, plants, and other kinds of succulents, not all of us have the capacity to grow them. There are very few people who have the “green thumb,” as they call it, that magical touch that allows plants and flowers to grow under their care. Luckily, we now have succulents to make us feel better about not being able to grow plants and flowers in the garden.
If you are a frustrated gardener or you simply like seeing plants inside your homes, a succulent plant is the best option for you.
Here are our top 7 reasons why succulents are the best plants to take care of:
1. They are Low Maintenance
Succulents need little sunlight and water. You can leave them for half a day under the sunlight (while you are working) and then take them back in after you come home from work. You can water them before you leave, and then allow them to dry up before watering them again when you come home. It takes very little effort to make sure they grow healthily.
2. They Come in All Colors
Whether you want them in girly colors of pink and lavender or you want them in earthy and natural colors like green, you’ll never have a hard time looking for the color of your liking. Succulents come in all kinds of colors you’ll be amazed at how many are available in the market.
3. They are Attractive as Hanging Plants
One of the things we love most about succulents is they can be tied with a string or a decorative cord and hanged indoors or outdoors. You can hang them in your gardens or inside your homes as decorative centerpieces.
4. They Can Be Transferred in Teacups
Instead of having to buy decorative pots, you can use an old teacup to put the succulent there. It looks dainty and very girly afterwards (if that is the look you are going after). There are other options, too. You can put them in a mini aquarium you haven’t used for years or put them in birdcages all together. They’ll make for an amazing décor.
5. They are Ideal Party Favors
If you don’t know already, succulents like CAL Farms 20 of 2” Beautiful Assorted Variety Succulents make for great party favors. Whether it’s a wedding, a birthday, an anniversary, or a company party, it’s nice to be given a succulent as a giveaway.
6. They Can Be Used as Wedding Décor
You think succulents are only used as living room décor? What’s stopping you from using it as a wedding décor? They can help guests find seats or be used as table centerpieces. You may even turn succulents into a wall décor where guests can take pictures in front of it.
7. They Can Be Turned Into Wreaths
If you’re tired of seeing the old wreaths again and again during the Christmas season, you can turn your succulents into them instead. They are livelier to look at and definitely more interesting than the common items used on wreaths.
