HOME: succulents galore

I HEART SUCCULENTS.  Who couldn't love these luscious looking flower-like plants made up of plump leaves?  There are so many different ones to choose from and they're incredibly low maintenance (and low cost! cha-ching).  Being a plant lover, these are my favorite as I'm far from having a green thumb (more like a grim reaper thumb).

My collection has grown exponentially as of late, and I have them scattered all over my house.  From the window sills to the kitchen to the bathroom - they go great everywhere.  The more the merrier!

A couple of quick tips I've learned (at the cost of a few poor succulents):
1. Use cactus and succulent potting soil that is quick draining
2. Less is more when it comes to watering.  I use a spray bottle to avoid overwatering and give the plants a few sprays each week.
