Add a new dimension to your home design with these houseplants and arrangements.
Succulents are plants with thick stems and leaves that are able to adapt in dry climates. Because they can grow in almost any type of light (although they prefer bright light), and because they dont need much water, succulents are some of the most low maintenance plants you can purchase. This makes them very desirable. After all, who doesnt want a house plant that is easy to keep alive and looks great? The best way to showcase these plants are in groups. They can survive in containers with other low-water plants and add an exotic color, shape, and texture to any group. The most poplar types of succulents are jade, aloe, and all of the varieties of cacti.
