Succulents are beautiful and unique plants that can be planted in a variety of ways. Succulent care is important as they are plants that don't need much watering and over-watering can cause them to rot. Unfortunately over-watering is a common way these plants die. Although there are a variety of succulents the care for them is generally the same.
