Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot.

Aeonium Zwartkop

The aeonium arrived as a cutting and struggled in the beginning. Since using a plastic bag as a “greenhouse,” it is looking much better. Will see how well it does after I’m sure it has rooted.
