Nothing says love more than live plants. On dates, during weddings, and for special occasions, people are always bringing cut flowers to loved ones to show they care. Cut flowers are beautiful and add to the home decor, but eventually, wither up and die. However, what if you could give your love a rose that would last forever? No, it's not like Beauty and the Beast. Say hello to the greenovia dodrentalis, your new favorite succulent plant.
There are over 60 different types of succulents available, each of them beautiful and above all, almost effortless to take care of. Cacti and succulents require little water and a healthy soil mix. Drought tolerant, an indoor succulent garden doesn't require too much bright light, making it perfect for the office or living room.
The rose succulent is a rare plant hailing from the Canary Islands. Thankfully with the internet, it's pretty easy to find seeds. The small plants reach 6-inches tall when fully mature. Water the plant only when the topsoil is dry. In the winter reduce the amount of water by half and in the spring resume the water as normal. When Summer comes along you can move your plant to your patio, making sure the succulent is not in direct sunlight. Full sun will slowly fry the succulent leaves.
Want to give your loved one a full-grown plant? Check out these rose-inspired succulents. These are more common, making it easy to grab these fully grown rather than waiting for the unique succulent seeds to germinate.
