String of Tears 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.

I am very pleased with my purchase. Arrived a few days early and were definitely larger than I expected. I’ve ordered from another company in the past and the plants were tiny and didn’t survive. These are doing great 👍
