I’ve long had a soft spot for succulents. Being from Arizona, they remind me of home. Having absolutely no green thumb, they’re my plant family of choice because they’re low maintenance [read: slightly harder to kill] and so interesting. I'm constantly amazed by the hundreds of unique forms this plant species can take. They make for incredible images, but also beautiful houseplants, and thus also great gifts. And unlike when sending flowers to friends, succulents will last for months.
If you buy succulents of your own, be sure to find out how often to water them. They don’t take kindly to over-watering. We Arizonans can, after all, only handle a dry heat.
