    I love them!! I love them in terrariums most of all. They are very easy to maintain. Need very little water to survive. So they are perfect for people like me who forget to water plants.

    How pretty! I forget how easy it is to grow succulents and how nice they look. I think I stopped having them when I first got pets and I worried about them eating them.

    I love low maintenance plants. I’m not one that likes to be outdoors during the summer heat pulling weeds and watering. Also, we have alot of shade in the back. That somewhat limits me as to what I can plant.
