how to care for... MIXED SUCCULENTS
Sadly, the first tip for succulent newbies is to steer clear of the pretty purple, orange, and red varieties. Those grow best outdoors, so stick with the succulents in shades of green. They're are obsessed with warmth and sunlight, so keep them in your sunniest window. If you've planted several in one pot, make sure they have enough space between them. Overcrowding your succulents doesn't let them breathe and minimizes the amount of sunlight that reaches each one. And finally, it's a common misconception that succulents don't require much water. Actually, succulents need to be watered enough for the leaves to soak in as much moisture as possible. A good rule of (green) thumb--water your potted succulents whenever the soil has completely dried out. If you live in a dry climate, you'll have to water them more often than if you live in, say, the tropical rainforest. Or Seattle.
