How-To: Care For Succulents

Last Friday, I featured Kelly's cool succulent favors in the Weekend DIYs. Kelly wrote to me to announce that she's just opened up a shop featuring her succulent designs. I'm a huge fan of these hardy plants, and I'm also loving the designs that Kelly features at SucculentLOVE. Specializing in creating fresh, modern displays for succulents, Kelly's designs run the gamut, from rustic and pretty to modern and chic. While she's currently only selling and delivering in the Los Angeles area, she's setting up a shipping system and aims to have it in place by the end of the Summer. While succulents are low-care, they certainly aren't no-care plants. To hear Kelly's tips for taking care of succulents, 


  • Succulents would rather you ignore them than lavish them with attention. This way they'll actually grow better.
  • When the soil is completely dried out, spritz your succulent with water from a spray bottle to keep it from getting too parched.
  • Full sun is best!
  • If your succulent develops any brown leaves, simply pull them off and let the plant keep growing.
  • Give your succulent a breath of fresh air once in a while by placing it on a porch or a balcony.
