In case you really do need help with the whole green thumb thing, here's some helpful tips on caring for succulents

- Don't Over Water. You may think your little pals are looking a bit dry, trust us, they like it! Succulents do not require frequent watering like most house plants. Use Cactus soil to help with moisture control and drainage. Keep soil damp and cool, but never saturate your plants or allow water to puddle up in your planter. We suggest lightly watering every few weeks to a month and mist plants every other week or so. Add Cactus Food to your waterings to help boost the health of your succulents. 

- Environment. Keep your plants away from air vents, drafty/cold areas or outside during cool months. Try to keep your plants in a temperature controlled environment - they don't fair well with changes in their climate. Succulents tend to favor temperatures of 60-90 degrees. 

- Sunlight. Succulents love sunlight, but be weary of over saturating them in it's golden rays. If a succulent is overwhelmed by the amount of sunlight it's receiving you will notice leaves becoming less colorful or 'bleached'.  Find a good space with constant indirect sunlight or an area that only gets direct sunlight for a short period of time each day. The same goes for too little sunlight. If your plants are dissatisfied with the amount of sunlight they are receiving the leaves will weaken and start turning brown. This is a sign you should move your plants to a more desirable area.
