Succulents, Part 1

There's a fair bit of shame involved in killing a succulent, perhaps more than any other plant. It’s like the pinnacle of not having a green thumb: “I can’t even keep a succulent alive, I can’t take care of plants.” We’re told constantly that they’re hard to kill, but guess what? That isn’t exactly true.

I’m a “professional plant lady,” meaning I sell, grow, and care for succulents both in my own business and as a plant caretaker at a hotel. And one of my dirtiest little secrets is that I have a succulent graveyard at home that would blow your mind.
