Succulents are the perfect plant for forgetful gardeners. They don’t require lots of effort and care and can be grown inside and outside during Minnesota’s summer months. We have a large variety that we grow right here in our Greenhouses in Cottage Grove, MN.
Make sure to put your succulents in a sunny area. Succulents typically need at least 3 hours of direct sunlight, preferably morning sun.
Succulents like dry, hot, and sunny climates. Make sure you plant your succulents in a pot with drainage holes or rocks in the bottom of the planter to promote drainage. In the summer months, we recommend watering your succulents every 7-10 days. In the winter months, we recommend watering your succulents every 10-14 days. This can vary depending on weather and climate.
We carry cactus and succulent potting mix that works great with succulents. Alternatively, you can mix regular potting soil with sand to promote drainage.
