You are all set to bring your first succulent home. But there are so many beautiful succulent varieties out there that you may find yourself in a fix regarding which one to buy. Although all plants need love and care, succulents are not too demanding in this regard. In fact, some succulent varieties are hardier than others. So, if you want to brighten up your home with lovely succulents but don’t have time to look after them, this guide is for you.

Here, we have some of the most attractive yet easy to maintain succulents. The best part? They don’t need you to have a green thumb. Let’s check out –

  1. Agave Variegated:

It is the variegated version of the common century plant. It has yellow margins and alligator-toothed leaves that curl inwards. Thus, this plant will make a striking tropical statement in your indoor landscape. Note that one should place it at a safe distance from pedestrian areas. Although the flowers are attractive to hummingbirds, they will not appear until the end of the plant’s life. Extreme cold temperatures can cause tissue damage to variegated agaves, especially when combined with moisture.

2. Barrel Cactus:

The ribbed and cylindrical shape of barrel cactus plants is what makes them stand out. These cacti can come in many sizes, and they may be tall or short. Barrel cactus tends to grow tilted towards the southwest and helps lost travellers. This plant can be cared for easily and thus is a great choice for beginners. You must keep potted cactus in the warmest part of your home, in a sunny spot. In the heat of summer, direct sunlight can burn the plant, so avoid sunny places. To avoid direct sunlight, you can move it away from the window. The soil for barrel cactus is mainly sand with some topsoil, perlite, and compost. In summer, you should water your barrel cactus only once per week, while in winters, it stays dormant and won’t require much water.

3. Jade Plant:

‘Lucky Plant’ as people call and believe in many Asian cultures that Jade plant brings luck, success, and friendship. To welcome money into your home, it is considered good fengshui to have a jade plant near the front door. People often use these plants as housewarming or congratulatory gifts.  Keep Jade in bright light and water when it feels dry. Overwatering can cause it to become brittle.

4. Aloe Vera:

This prickly plant has been used medicinally for hundreds of years. The sap from the inner leaves can be used to soothe burns and heal wounds. Always place Aloe vera in direct sunlight and water when the soil feels dry. And you can keep this medicinal plant near a bright window, making it look beautiful at all times.

5. Zebra Plant:

The horizontal stripes that cover Zebra plants’ leaves give these striking succulents their name. The zebra plant stands approximately 5 to 6 inches tall and is compact and contained. Therefore, it’s a great addition to your home for filling in small spaces. The zebra plant needs moderate sunlight and water and is extremely easy to care for.

6. Bunny Ears Cactus Plants:

These plants have thick pads that are decorated with fuzzy glochids (or short bristles) that look like rabbit fur and grow in bunches. So, you don’t need to be a professional gardener to grow bunny ears cactus.
