Succulents are sure trending right now. Their explosion into homes, onto magazine covers, and on top of wedding centrepieces has a lot to do with the range of colours, textures and fleshy leaves that Succulents are available in – there are approximately 60 different plant families that contain succulents. Originating in areas with long dry seasons, like Africa, desert-dwelling Succulents store water in their leaves, which makes them as tolerant to drought as they are to neglect. As a whole, Succulents have similar care needs – you just need to step into their roots and imagine what it’d be like to thrive in a desert. Try to replicate those conditions in your home – sand isn’t mandatory.
