I bought home 3 succulents — an aloe aristata, a crassula and an echeveria dondo — while scouting for flowers for ze wedding.
Lol. Speaking like a succulent guru. I actually googled them. And mind you, they may not be the species that I think they are. There are just so many succulents out there.
I know, succulents have been a rave for what, 2 to 3 years now, but I have only purchased my own just today when I went to Dangwa, the flower city of Manila.
What are succulents?
Succulents are those plants which have the capacity to store water in them. Think of cacti. Most of them have thick leaves which I want to squeeze when I got to feel them because they’re so soft. Except for those with thorns though!
There are over 50 succulent species! They look so dainty. Mine are still mothered by little black plastic bags. I’ll find little pots soon! Wee! I am so excited.
I am still reading on tips on how to take good care of them. I’m going to share my own tips when I get to be this experience cacti mommy in a few weeks.
For now, I’m going to show you my succys:
Aren’t they cuties??
Anyway, here’s an infographic of the different types of succulents. I am planning to hoard many! But I only like some and maybe not all of them are available here in the Philippines. And this gives me another inspiration — watercoloring succulents! hah! Good luck to me.
