3 | Small Succulent Ideas for Small Spaces

Sometimes keeping it small and simple is the best option. Because succulents are easy to care for and only need indirect light, they are perfect in work spaces or small spaces where there is just enough lighting. You don’t always have to place succulents and terrariums on the windowsill. Other great places where these amazing plants can thrive are wall shelves and bookcases. If you’re thinking about adding plants to your office to brighten up your workspace, go for it! What’s great about succulents is that they store water in their leaves so you don’t need to water them as often. In fact, just enough water every two weeks is all you need. Keeping succulents small is perfect for gift giving and adding a little life to your small space.
