Succulents - Variety of species (you pick) NOTE: No shipping / pickup only
Not to be confused with cactus; nearly all cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti. Succulent plants have thickened stems, or leaves, such as this Aloe. Succulents, are plants with parts that are thickened, fleshy, and engorged, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. The word succulent comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning 'juice', or 'sap'. Succulent plants may store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems. The water content of some succulent organs can get up to 90–95%. Often grown as ornamental plants because of their striking and unusual appearance, as well as their ability to thrive with relatively minimal care.
Planting / Care: Part shade to filtered sun. Can grow in sun but will become stressed. Needs regular watering during hot summer, but be careful not to overwater. Allow soil between waterings. Benefits from 2-3 light applications of fertilizer per year using ammonium phosphate. Succulents have the ability to thrive on limited water sources, such as mist and dew, which makes them equipped to survive in an ecosystem that contains scarce water sources.
