People just LOVE succulents for a variety of reasons. First of all, they are so unique in how they look. They come in different shapes and sizes and even colors! Many are very slow growing so that is a benefit to many because they don’t want to have plants that get unruly and hard to take care of. But probably the MOST SPECIAL thing about succulents is that they are so easy to care for… they thrive on NEGLECT! They require very little care… you can almost forget about them and water them infrequently. They are great for college students who want a plant to have in their dorm room but they don’t have to do much to keep it alive.
