Firstly, it is essential to understand what succulents are. Succulent plants have fleshy tissues adapted to store water, requiring less water than other plants.
Watering is a crucial factor in successfully growing succulents and cacti. Watering frequency depends on the year’s season, with less water required in the winter when the plant enters a state of dormancy or inactivity.
The amount of sunlight needed is dependent on the type of succulent. Seedlings or immature succulents need less sun and should be gradually introduced to sunlight. This is called hardening-off.
