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 a cactus potting mix that works great with succulents. Alternatively, you can mix regular potting soil with sand to promote drainage.
