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. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.

Of the three plants I ordered, this is the one I most wanted. This is also the plant that didn't fare well on the journey. It is still looking very wilted two weeks after unpacking. I am hoping some fertilizer will help.
well packaged came quickly
Its a very cute little plant
Beautiful healthy and happy plant.
Very happy to add this to my collection. Was a little disappointed when some of the leaves fell off shortly after they arrived, probably due to stress; but that can’t necessarily be helped with shipping plants. Gorgeous plant nonetheless.
