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.

I am always amazed at how well the little plants survive being sent across the country. They were very well packed and survived without a problem. They looked a little droopy and dry but perked up nicely when planted and watered.
My dolphins came so well packaged and although it took a few days for them to appreciate their new home, they have perked up and are frolicking happily next to my jade plant.
Arrived in excellent shape. Has been repotted & already has new growth! Excellent!
I was really surprised (even though the reviews said the succulents arrived in perfect condition) the packaging was so great! All my little ones arrived happy and healthy! Can't wait to order again! I've spread the word!
Came nicely wrapped, safe and sound :)
My bundle was carefully wrapped and healthy. Very delicate so be careful. The "dolphins" easily pop off. Beautiful plant.
