Succulents for Beginners

  1. Agave - long-leaved succulent plant that naturally forms a rosette shape and produces a flower spire of attractive cup shaped blooms.
  2. Crassula (Jade Plant) - There's a reason why it's so widely grown, and that's because it's virtually impossible to kill. They can make fabulous mixed group plants, or can be grown as a spectacular single specimen.
  3. Echeveria (Black Prince) -leaves are fleshy and have a waxy cuticle on the exterior. This succulent produces offsets or baby plants nestled against the mother rosette which are are easy to separate and grow.
  4. Kalanchoe – has heads of small, starry, 4-petalled flowers open at varying times depending on the species. The blooms can be particularly vibrant, often in yellow, orange, or red shades. Can be grown outdoors in a sunny sheltered position or indoors.
  5. Sanseveria - commonly known as Mother In Law's Tongue, has a modernistic look with its green upright leaves.
  6. Sedum- Easy to grow, and hard to kill, these plants such as Donkey’s Tail trail over the edge of larger containers with other plants.
  7. Senecio (String of Pearls, String of Beans) - The leaves are thick and fleshy and can be deep green, bluish or even striped. Senecio succulent leaves vary widely in shape. Some are round, some banana-shaped, some stand upright. Senecios are an interesting group of easy-to-care for succulent houseplants often grown in hanging baskets (String of Beans).String of pearls is a variety that has trailing stems, it's often grown in hanging baskets so you can enjoy the plant's interesting texture.
