Two years ago one of my students gave me a pot of succulents as a thank you gift. My love affair with succulents began. They did well that first summer, then over the winter one of the varieties died and the other two looked not far behind. I kept them alive until the summer, added a few more to my collection, and got much better at keeping my plant babies happy.
Do your succulents look like they are at death’s door?
