5 Reasons Succulents Are Perfect For College

Succulents are similar to a cactus, if you weren't aware. They are both described as having fleshy parts that store water. Succulents, however, lack spikes and are not classified with cacti to botanists.

1. They Are Easy To Maintain

They just need a lot of sun, and a little bit of water.

2. You Don't Need A Green Thumb

They are a drought resistant plant. Thus, if you forget to water it for a month, it'll probably still be thriving! They are a very hearty plant and can tolerate a bit of abuse here and there. Don't let them deceive you however, I have killed countless succulents from severe abuse.

3. Aesthetic

These plants come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. They are pretty versatile when it comes to placing them. They can survive in small pots and you can put decorative gravel on top. Plus there isn't a "standard" looking succulent only. There are exotic looking ones that make the regularly looking ones more exciting.

4. Succulents Are Compact

Succulents are great for dorm and apartments. They do not need much space at all. Plus you do not have to worry about needing the water to drain out of the pot so you do not have to deal with the mess.

5. They're Plants!

It is always nice to liven a room up with a plant, but we all know the hassle of dealing with them. Succulents are perfect plants to bring in your home to brighten any room up.

Succulents are perfect for any college student to have. Incorporating them into your home allows you to have a little piece of nature while you work diligently.

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
