The best thing about succulents is that they are easy to care. Let’s discuss some of the best indoor succulents that can be grown at home.

Indoor Succulents for Home

Zebra Cactus (Haworthia fasciata)

The zebra plant, which is native to Africa, sits on top of the soil and has a precise form of leaves with gorgeous horizontal white stripes. The beauty of this little plant is that it has a great appearance, takes up little space, and requires little to no maintenance.

Growing Tips

  • Use a shallow container Because the roots do not penetrate the soil deeply, use a shallow container.

  • For best development, repot it every 12 to 24 months with fresh succulent potting mix.

  • Allow the soils to dry up completely between waterings. It's critical for all succulents.

  • The zebra plant should be put in a sunny area away from direct sunlight to avoid it becoming shriveled.

Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is a succulent medicinal plant whose sap has been used for ages to cure sunburn and wounds. Aside from its medicinal properties, aloe vera is an excellent indoor plant. Because the sharp thorns along the leaf margins might hurt people, the plant should be planted in an area where it won't be accidentally touched or knocked over.

Growing Tips

  • Allow the soil to dry in between soaks.

  • Place it where it will receive a few hours of sunshine each day.

  • Fertilize the plant with a balanced 10:10:10 fertilizer twice throughout the growing season, but not in the winter.

  • Repot only when the roots are pushing their way out of the pot.

Crown of Thorns (Euphorbia milli)

This plant, which is native to Madagascar, may bloom all year if given enough light. Long, spoon-shaped leaves and small blooms grow at the ends of its prickly branches. Because of their modest size, the blooms are hardly discernible, but they are surrounded by lovely yellow, red, or salmon bracts.

Growing Tips

  • This plant requires just light to moderate watering.

  • Allowing the entire pot to dry out will cause it to shed leaves.

  • Although the plant can adapt to medium-light situations, direct light will give you the finest bloom.

  • During the growth season, fertilize 2-3 times with a balanced 10:10:10 fertilizer.

Hens-and-Chicks

Hens-and-Chick plants develop flat flowerlike rosettes with rounded edges, making them another wonderful succulent group for indoor growing. Overwatering can promote rotting in these plants, so let them dry out between waterings.

Growing Tips

  • If growing in a colder climate, water infrequently throughout winter dormancy.

  • Keep these plants in a bright location; however, they may tolerate mild shade.

  • Cuttings can be used to propagate the plants.

String of Bananas

Long tendrils of little banana-like leaves grow from the trailing indoor succulent plant. When planted alone, the plant looks fantastic, but it has to be clipped on a regular basis if it is to grow thick and full. It also looks great when combined with other succulent indoor plants in a container.

Growing Tips

  • Filtered sunlight is required.

  • When the soil is dry to the touch, water the plant.

  • It thrives in porous soil with good drainage.

  • Because it is poisonous, keep it away from dogs and children who could eat it.

String of Pearls

The string of pearls is a beautiful trailing houseplant that looks great in hanging baskets inside. You may try growing it in different containers to see what works best. Cultivating a string of pearls or beads is similar to growing other succulent houseplants.

Growing Tips

  • Maintain a strong light for the string of pearl plants.

  • Watering should be done with caution; this plant requires little water, but in hotter climates, moderate watering is necessary.
