The story of succulents  

Highly decorative, eye-catching and extremely easy to care for: there’s a lot to be said for succulents such as Echeveria, Crassula, Kalanchoe, Aeonium, Aloe, Haworthia and Rhipsalis. They’re all succulents, which means that they are able to store water in their roots, stems and thick leaves. This enables them to effortlessly cope with dry periods, so a relief for when you go on holiday. Succulents are particular popular because their unusual, sometimes freakish shapes, fit perfectly with the current trend to give botanicals a role in shaping the style in interiors. 

Origin

Most succulents come from the tropics and subtropics, and originally developed in dry areas such as steppes, mountainous regions and semi-deserts in Africa and South and Central America. They are tough guys that can also survive in a warm, arid maritime climate in the wild.  

Care tips

  • Succulents like a warm and light spot. 
  • It’s best to give a succulent a large amount of water in one go, and then leave it to dry out for a couple of weeks. 
  • Be restrained with plant food: a little bit once a month is enough. 
  • Succulents can also be used on the garden table in the summer months.
