Filtered Morning Sun to Full Shade

These succulents prefer a sheltered position outdoors in full shade or a filtered morning sun position.  They tend to be deeper green in colour so don’t require as much sunlight to photosynthesize.  It should be a warm, dry, protected area under the canopy of trees for tropical ‘jungle’ cacti or in dry shade.  Low light requirement succulents will also thrive under pergolas, covered outdoor patios or structures that get filtered morning sun (not direct sun).  Jungle cacti (listed separately here) also fit into this category.  These plants (excluding Clivias) are all suitable indoor succulents.
