An explanation for types of succulents page

I am so excited to walk you through these types of succulents’ page, so there are a few different things on the page that I just wanted to give you a little bit of clarification on, but we’ve tried to make it as straightforward as possible.

So The first thing you’re going to see is the Latin name for the plant and then also right below it you’ll see any familiar terms for that plant then, we’re going to have a quick little description of it they’ll see an image of it here, and we’re going to add more of those over time, so if you check back, we may be adding more photos to these.

And then under the quick look, the first thing I’m here is how much sunlight it needs now mo seconds need full sun, but they don’t tend to like sunlight in whole on Sun full heat so generally, some afternoon shade is going to be good, but if they’re well-rooted, they can handle full sun for the whole day so right here you’re going to see the full sun to partial shade.

 And then right below that I mentioned whether or not it can be grown such a lot of Crayolas like indoors this one they can be grown indoors and they need to receive a lot of great sunlight and realize you may not get a lot of this color on the edge of the leaves as it’s grown indoors they’ll stay a little bit more of a deep green.

And then next up we have the water needs for a succulent so you can click here to see the blog post on how to water succulents and the soak and dry method and we’ll make know if this is one that’s sensitive to over watering.

The next step you’ll have the size that it can grow to be most of the images for these are going to be a smaller specimen because that’s what you’re going to be purchasing online or in a store most likely but a lot of them can grow to be extremely large.

The next thing is the growing zone and this is the u.s. growing zones we’re also going to be adding in the minimum temperatures that they can handle as well then whether or not they’re cold hearty now cold hardy means they can tolerate snow and ice in the winter so that’s generally going to be plants that are in a zone four or five or you know maybe even a three there might be a few in there but anything that’s a zone nine or ten it can handle a night or two across but it’s not going to handle extreme or long periods of freezing temperatures.

Then we’re also going to mention different ways that you can propagate it so that’s pretty straightforward whether or not it is poisonous or toxic to animals or humans and then also the active growing season so cooler months would mean spring and fall and then it would be dormant or at least the growth would slowed down in summer when it’s extra hot and in the winter when it’s cooler.

Then next you’ll have and a button right here where you can purchase that succulent through an affiliate link which means we do get a commission if you purchase through here at no extra cost to you so one of the ways we keep running succulents greener that button will generally be a link to MOUNTAIN CREST Gardens which is one of our favorite places to buy succulents and then also just some alternate sources if it’s not available here or if you just have a different preference of where you like to purchase succulents online.
