2. Give Your Succulents Enough Sunlight

If you’re growing succulents indoors, make sure to give them plenty of sunlight. Place succulents in sunny areas of your home like window seals or an indoor patio. If succulents are not getting enough sunlight, they will start to lose their natural appearance and look stretched out.

3. Use a Good Draining Soil

For indoor succulents, it’s important to use a soil that doesn’t hold a lot of moisture. Succulents do best with a soil that drains well, as they need little water to survive. For more tips on choosing the best type of soil for growing succulents, click here.

4. Water Properly

Help your succulents thrive indoors by properly watering them. Letting the soil dry out before watering your succulents again is the secret to healthy root growth. For best results, avoid using a spray bottle to water your succulents.
