Indoor Succulents

Generally speaking, succulents perform best outside, however, many will thrive indoors too, if placed in the right position. Some of these succulents prefer a sunny, bright light position indoors whilst a few will also thrive in low light positions.  If you would like to purchase a succulent for a particular position indoors, then return to the plant gifts menu and select ‘Indoor Succulents’ from dropdown menu and either “Bright Light” or “Low Light” from the sub menu to make your selection based on your specific placement requirements or for gift consideration. 

TIP: The darker the leaf the less light the plant generally requires.
