  • In botany, succulent plants, also known as succulents, are plants with parts that are thickened, fleshy, and engorged, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions.
  • It is a characteristic that is not used scientifically for the definition of most families and genera of plants because it often can be used as an accurate characteristic only at the single-species level.
  • The word succulent comes from the Latin word sucus, meaning 'juice', or 'sap'.
  • Succulent plants may store water in various structures, such as leaves and stems.
  • Some definitions also include roots, thus geophytes that survive unfavorable periods by dying back to underground storage organs may be regarded as succulents.
  • In horticultural use, the term succulent is sometimes used in a way that excludes plants that botanists would regard as succulents, such as cacti.
  • Succulents are often grown as ornamental plants because of their striking and unusual appearance, as well as their ability to thrive with relatively minimal care.
  • Many plant families have multiple succulents species found within them (more than 25 plant families).
  • In some families, such as Aizoaceae, Cactaceae, and Crassulaceae, most species are succulents.
  • The habitats of these water-preserving plants are often in areas with high temperatures and low rainfall, such as deserts.
  • Succulents have the ability to thrive on limited water sources, such as mist and dew, which makes them equipped to survive in an ecosystem that contains scarce water sources.


  • Succulents need soil that drains, so regular potting soil—or dirt from your yard—won’t do.
  • Choose cactus soil or mix potting soil with sand, pumice, or perlite.
  • Succulent roots are very fragile so be gentle when repotting.
  • Succulents don’t like to sit in waterlogged soil, so drainage is important to prevent rot.
  • Your container should have a drainage hole to allow excess water to escape.
  • Terra-cotta pots are ideal for beginners.


  • Succulents don’t need much fertilizer, but you can give them light feedings during the spring and summer growing season.
  • Be careful not to overfertilize—this can cause your succulent to grow too quickly and become weak.


  • Succulents love light and need about six hours of sun per day, depending on the type of succulent.
  • Newly planted succulents can scorch in direct sunlight, so you may need to gradually introduce them to full sun exposure or provide shade with a sheer curtain.
  • Succulents love the direct sun, but if yours is sitting in the same exact spot day after day, it's likely that only one side is getting enough light.
  • Try rotating the plant often.
  • Succulents will lean towards the sun, so rotating them will help them stand up straight.
  • Leaning may also be a sign that they need to be in a sunnier spot.


  • Just like us, succulents need more energy when they're in a period of growth.
  • During the spring and summer, the plants are thriving and drinking up much more water than when they're resting in the fall and winter.
  • It is recommended to test the soil with a finger—when the top 1.25 inches are dry, grab your watering can.
  • Overwatering can kill your succulent, so make sure you let the soil dry between waterings.
  • When you water your succulents, soak the soil until water runs out of the drainage holes.
  • If your container doesn’t have drainage holes, use less water.
  • Don’t use a spray bottle to water your succulents—misting can cause brittle roots and moldy leaves.
  • You can also place pots in a pan of water and allow the water to absorb through the drainage hole.
  • Once the top of the soil is moist, remove it from the pan.
