Feature Plant: Succulents

Feature Plant: Succulents

Succulents are everywhere. From the tables at your favourite hipster cafe, to the bathroom vanities of your favourite stylists. It seems like everybody’s gone succulent mad, and it’s easy to see why. 

But what exactly is a succulent and why do you need one? (Only joking- once you start with the succulent obsession, you can never have just one!) 

Succulents are basically the ultimate example of natures ability to survive- no matter the conditions. In fact, you’ll find succulents in some of the most extreme conditions on earth and for that reason, they’re a great plant to have in your house, especially if you don’t have a lot of time (or you tend to, uh, forget to look after houseplants.)

Succulents are amazingly drought tolerant, making them ideal for our harsh Australian conditions. Stick ’em outside, leave in the house, they’ll generally withstand most things.

Succulents store water in their thick, fleshy leaves and can be left for days without being tended to. As a general rule of thumb, 7-10 days between watering is a good guideline or you can just go by the feel of the soil. If it’s dry to touch give your succulent a water. You just don’t want to over water the little guys. Low maintenance decor with maximum effect.

As we’ve already mentioned you can put a succulent anywhere, although they do love a spot with plenty of light and air and a quick scroll on Pinterest will show you the creations that can be done like everybody’s (grab some online inspo and make a weekend project for yourself). 

A small succulent in feature pot is a great addition to a small space like a vanity, a dresser or even a drab work desk (send us an email to discuss wholesale pots-we have some beauties if we do say so ourselves! ) and larger potted collections make a great feature for a dining table or hallway. 

There are hundreds of species of succulent and currently we have over 300 under production with our range expanding all the time.
