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.

Super happy with this purchase, I ordered it for my step mom who lives in another state and when it was delivered it was in perfect condition. Would definitely order from here again!
I was so looing forward to getting one of these guys and he did not disappoint! I recieved a healthy plant with much new growth and baby dolphins on its limbs, as well as huge dolphins towards the base. Could NOT be any happier! :)
This was a must for me. Took longer to get her than expected.. not Succy's fault. When it arrived it was a bit beat up and the dirt was mostly out of the pot and in box. Hope it bounces back. Writing this on day 2 of receiving. 🥰
My plants arrived in record time and great shape. Very healthy looking
Absolutely gorgeous!! Thank you!!
