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.

I was a dummy and ordered a bunch of plants during a week where it was always under 20 degrees. I also bought a heat pack. Everything came nicely packaged and more importantly: alive! Since it shipped from California to New York, I'm pretty impressed. As a first time customer I was worried about purchasing from a smaller business, but I think it was definitely worth it. Currently, the plant is more green than black, but I hope once we get into spring/summer it'll darken up. This time of year we don't really see much sun. But it's been doing well since I repotted it.
The plant itself was healthy and pretty. But one of the leaf was damaged during the transportation.
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.
