My obsession with succulents began when I realized they were the only type of plant in the world that I could never kill.
Here are a few reasons you should fall in love with succulents too:
They are low maintenance. Have you ever bought a plant and just sorta accidentally forgot about it for a few days and when you remembered that it existed you rushed over with a cup of water just to find it dead? Well you’re probably not the only one. Most plants require a lot of attention. Watering but not overwatering, making sure they’re in the sun or not in the sun depending on the type of plant. Succulents are the lazy persons plant. You forget to water them for a few days? No biggie! Going out of town for the weekend? Forget about paying the neighbor kid to water your plants. They can survive in almost any environment with minimal water. How efficient of them!
Little did I know when I first became fascinated with these little plants that there were so many different types! I love that they come in different hues of green and sometimes purplish colors. The wide variety is what makes succulents so fun, mixing and matching styles and colors makes for beautiful DIY projects.
Lastly, men are cool with them. Guys typically don’t care much for flowers and plants, because gardening is more of a women’s hobby but It makes me happy that Blake loves succulents just as much as I do. A few years ago, for my birthday, he helped me build a pallet plant holder. We had so much fun working on it together and that was when he first showed interest in them. It was cool to share a common interest and we had a lot of fun at the nursery picking out which succulents we wanted to include in our little project.
