After many failed attempts at keeping succulents alive I think I have finally found the sweet spot in my apartment for them to thrive, and I am loving the results.


This time around I made sure to do the following:

  1. I layered an inch of rock at the bottom of each pot for proper drainage.
  2. I placed them in a spot in my apartment that gets direct sunlight all day long.
  3. I am not overwatering! This is one of my biggest succulent care faux pas that I have made in the past. In the winter time they don't need to be watered very often so I feel the soil about an inch down and if it is dry to the touch they get a couple ounces of water.

So far so good!
