Autumn is in full swing, and our gardens are slowing down for the colder months. At this time of year you’re probably spending less time gardening outdoors, which gives you the chance to spruce up your indoor garden game.
If you’re hoping for a beautiful and easy indoor garden sanctuary this autumn, why not try succulents? Succulent plants come in a variety of shapes, colours, and sizes, making them suitable for all kinds of interior spaces.
Succulents are easy to identify because of their juicy leaves and stems. These leaves aren’t just pretty; they’re designed to hold water during droughts. That’s good news for the forgetful gardener: succulents are resilient, hardy and versatile.
With thousands of varieties to choose from, it can be tricky identifying which types are right for your indoor space. For example, if you’re growing them in a room with low levels of natural light or cooler temperatures you’ll need to adjust how much water and fertiliser you give. And if you’re looking to create impact with hanging planters or terrariums, some succulents adapt to these conditions better than others. Some succulents can even be toxic to your pets!
When you get right down to it, there is a lot to know about succulent care! That’s why UncommonGoods, one of Brooklyn’s favorite online retailers of home and garden décor, has researched and compiled a list of the ten best succulents to brighten up your home this autumn.
