Step 1: Buying Your Succulent
Step1: The first step in raising succulents (a type of plant which comes
in many shapes, colors and sizes.) is buying one. Succulents are easy to take care of house plants so, if that's the type of plant your looking for a suculent is perfect for you! If you want a specific type of succulent then you should do some reasearch. Also don't forget to find a plant store that sells succulents!
Step 2: Planting Your Succulent
Step2: This step in rasing a succulent depends on whether you want to
put your succulent in a bigger pot or terrium or not. ( In plant stores they ussally put succulents in small pots.) When you get your pot you first haveto carefully grab your suculent, then grab the pot and twist it to take your succulent out. Next you fill the bigger pot with a potting soil for suculents, after that dig a whole wide enough and deep enough for your succulent. For a DIY terraium you first need to put in the hydro stones ( hydro stones are speical 'stones' that absorb any water your succulents don't absorb, next you add a then layer of moss above the hydro stones finally repeat the final step for a pot. ( you can also decorate your pot/ terraium.) ( Another great thing about succulents is that you can plant them in almost anything besides pots!)
Step 3: Caring for Your Succulent
Step3: After you finish putting your succulents in a pot/terriaum you
have to water them and find a nice spot for them in your home. Succulents don't need to be watered everyday, so try watering them every two to three days and don't give your succulent to much or to little water. A good spot for a succulent is a place where it can get plenty of sunlight at some time of day but not the whole day. If you see that after a while your succulents leaves are spreding out from the center or you see small succulent saplings that means you are taking good care of your succulent. ( If your succulents have fungus or mold on them ask a plant professional for help.)
