Plants beautify any space, bring life to interiors, and some of them even purify the air. But because of busy schedules, we sometimes forget to take care of them as much as they deserve. The same goes for beginners who are just getting ready to enrich their living space with plants, so the best way to do that is to take small steps.
There are many reasons why we love succulents, and one of the primary ones is that they do not require excessive dedication, so we will not have that feeling of failure if we forget to water them from time to time. Their fibers store water so they can survive even in extremely dry conditions.
And these 5 will look great on your window or dresser in the living room.
Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera)
This cactus, unlike many others, does not have sharp thorns, but long and flat stems. It likes a little more water than other cacti, so watering is recommended when the top inch of soil is dry, but it will recover even if we forget to water a little. The best place is by the window, where it can bloom in winter.
Aloe Vera is a plant that is easy to grow, and its benefits are well known, so today it is used in cosmetics and beverages. It likes bright areas and it is better to keep the soil dry than moist.
Ideal plant for all forgetful or frequent travelers because it can withstand weeks without water and light, although it thrives best in moderately or brightly lit rooms. You can water it every time the soil looks dry.
Zebra (Haworthia fasciata) plant
This striped plant grows best next to windows where it will get bright but indirect light. Between waterings, allow the soil to dry completely. It won’t grow too much, so it can be combined with other succulents if you want to shape a terrarium.
Jade Tree or Money Tree or Crassula (Crassula ovata)
This South African plant is characterized by stems with thick green jade leaves. They can become quite heavy, so it is recommended to plant them in terracotta jars. With a window with direct light, the edges of the leaves may become reddish. Allow the soil to dry between waterings.
