It’s summertime and you probably spend a lot of time outside perfecting your gardens and landscapes. But what about inside your house. Adding plants inside your home can do a lot to spice up a room. What’s more, there is a larger variety of plants you can choose for indoor growing that won’t grow in cold Massachusetts weather, including everyone’s favorite: succulents. Another benefit of indoor succulents is that you don’t have to worry about things like grub control or weeds.
If your the type of person that shouldn’t be around houseplants, don’t worry. Succulents are very easy to care for houseplants and it’s okay if you forget to water them now and then. Here’s a list of some of our favorite indoor succulents.
This interesting looking succulent is native to Mexico and does best with a lot of sunlight. The long “tails” can reach up to two feet in length making the burrow’s tail a great choice for a hanging basket.
Echeveria is native to Texas and Central America where they thrive in desert conditions but can stand some moisture if they are allowed to dry out. They prefer full sun and well-drained soil to mimic their natural habitat. As an added bonus, echeveria produces baby plants that can be taken out and grown on their own, adding to your succulent collection.
If there is one word to describe the star window plant it’s “tough”. These small plants can be tucked away almost anywhere and don’t require a lot of sunlight. It is very tolerant of drought conditions, but not very tolerant of overwatering.
A native of Africa, the zebra plant is a head-turner. Its long thin green leaves are covered in white stripes that really make it pop. It can be placed in any corner of the room to add a bit of interest.
This unique plant comes from the tropical island of Madagascar. This adaptable plant will grow into any size container you put it in. People love this plant for its wide fuzzy leaves and its upright growth. Water infrequently but just enough to keep its leaves from drying out.
