Why We Love Cactus and Succulent

It’s time to go green, and here is why we love cactus and succulent (and you should too!).

The summer season challenges our “green thumb”: we love to stay outside in the green, we love to be surrounded by flowers and plants in the house, on the terrace or in our garden.

But when we have to chose which plants to buy, we start wondering if they will survive, if we will be able to take care of them, if they are the right plants for that spot…. No Panic! Succulent and cactus are the right choices for any kind of living spaces: indoor, outdoor, beach houses, mountain retreats, city apartments, northern as well as southern countries across the globe.

Not only succulent and cactus need very few attentions – just lots of light! – but they are extremely decorative and can be used in any space in the house: from the bathroom to the kitchen, in the bedroom, in the dining room or in entryways.

You can unleash your creativity with hundreds of different species to plant in pots and vases of all sorts of shapes and colors. Even old or chipped glasses are perfect to plant them, and could be a very original idea for a gift in any occasion.
