5 Very Unusual Succulent Plants – Care

In pretty pots or trendy florariums, on walls, tables and windowsills, succulents can withstand weeks without watering. They do not change their character and do not perceive conditions that are comfortable for most capricious indoor plants. And their variety will allow everyone to find their favorite. Similar either to stones, or to fancy flowers, or to extravagant sticks or lace, fashionable succulents are not limited to cacti and fat women for a long time.

5 very unusual succulents

Succulents – hardy, vibrant and varied

Succulent plants are commonly associated with deserts and semi-deserts, where only the most drought-tolerant crops can survive and can store water. But indoor succulents are much more diverse. Among them you can find the inhabitants of the highlands, accustomed to very cool temperatures and strong winds, and the inhabitants of the subtropics, and even the tropics.

The most famous of the succulents are cacti. Their ball-shaped or columnar thick stems and a large arsenal of means of protection in the form of spines and hairs cannot be missed. But cacti deserve careful consideration and special attention. Succulents are much more diverse in terms of their growth form. Their leaves and trunks sometimes take on the most bizarre shapes. In fact, the only “criterion” for determining belonging to a succulent is fleshy tissue.

Ease of care is the main advantage and trump card of succulents. They are amazingly hardy and durable. Even inexperienced flower growers should not have any difficulties with representatives of fashionable succulents. If they are not going to achieve flowering from the plants, then they are content with the same temperatures all year round. And the simplest cool wintering will also allow you to admire the beautiful and unexpectedly bright flowers.

Easily reproduced by children, requiring minimal watering and a couple of additional fertilizing per year, well adaptable, succulents are truly versatile plants.

The most eminent and widespread representatives of indoor succulents were introduced into culture so long ago that they managed to survive a period of almost oblivion. Genus names Milkweed (Euphorbia), Aloe (Aloe) и Crassula (Crassula) even today do not always evoke pleasant associations among many. And completely in vain. After all, these familiar and familiar plants can be boring only if you choose boring species. Dozens of varieties and hundreds of varieties make it possible to find extravagant stars even for skeptics.

But succulents are not limited to them only.
