String of Bananas Water and Light Recommendations
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.
Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

Thank you. My plants arrived in great shape, shipping was fast and the heat pad was still warm. I luv them and they look great
I purchased this to use in head vases for hair. It grows fast and is healthy. I love it.
This came so healthy. I was nursing a dying one and cant believe it was the same plant. Pleased with how quickly it came. Love this little guy.
Arrived well packed and thriving
Nice little plant, I was worried because my plants were delayed with USPS and they did look sad on arrival but perked right up with a little water, reporting and rest.
Plant arrived in perfect condition and appears to be doing very well. Great packaging job.
