Succulents



Winter sun shining through the south facing studio window: the succulent loves it. Usually I don't have plants in the studio: either there's too much light or not enough. But this succulent, which I bought last month, seems to be loving it. 

Succulents seem to be quite popular these days. 

Succulents/Cacti need at least 6 hours of sunlight (sometimes hard to get in Canada during the winter months).

They like to be warm in the summer and cool during the winter.

Watering once a week seems to be a good rule but make sure the soil is dry before watering (this will also deter bugs). And water them enough so that the water drains out at the bottom. I've been watering this one every 10 days.
