Beautiful and easy to care for: 5 types of succulent plants you'll love

Succulents may be among the most varied, beautiful and fascinating plants you can find. They are also very easy to care for. They hardly need any water. And in return, they give you all their colour.

Indoor succulent plant varieties are the perfect alternative for those who have tried other plants without success or for those who spend long periods outside their home and are lax with watering.

If that's the case with you, indoor succulents are the best alternative for you, as they are used to drought and are very low maintenance.

In addition, the different species of indoor succulents have another advantage over other plants for the same spaces: due to their origins, they tolerate well those dry environments that occur inside our homes and offices with winter heating.

These are 5 varieties that you may like and will serve to give a new air to your home or workplace.

1. ALOE VERA

Aloe Vera is perfect for indoors

It is a very beautiful plant with incredible health benefits, although you have to know the species well to use it. Regardless of its form, the care for Aloe vera is common to all species of succulents: sun lover, an enemy of frost, needing little water throughout the year and none in winter.

2. ECHEVERIA

Echeveria is a beautiful plant to have

Perhaps the most varied family of indoor and outdoor succulents. Not only can it be found in shades ranging from pink to grey, passing through the characteristic green or purple, but it also presents multiple forms with a common maxim: its variegated petals.

Rounded and fleshy leaves, it receives the nickname of the eternal rose. An appellation that not only gives a hint of how incredibly strong this plant is but also refers to the fact that the arrangement of its leaves resembles the petals of a rose.

It needs light but always indirect, has little need for watering especially in the cold months. The plant cannot tolerate being below 5 degrees and it does not require more fertilizer than one dose per month in the spring and summer season.

3. LITHOPS

Lithops are called living stones

The Lithops are called living stones or stone plants, and that is precisely what they look like. An incredible natural defence against being devoured, and to deceive possible predators with its shape.

Although they need a daily dose of light of between 6 and 7 hours, it will always have to be in an indirect way, since they do not tolerate direct sun.

They also have greater watering needs than other species of indoor succulent plants, so we will have to provide them with water every 10 days maximum or when we see the surface of their leaves wrinkle.

4. SENECIO

Senecio is a gorgeous plant to have in your house

Unique and original, it is perfect to decorate any space in a house or office with a natural touch and, moreover, demands very little care. An important precaution: it is a plant absolutely intolerant to excess watering.

5. RHIPSALIS

Rhipsalis has beautiful flowers

One of the most spectacularly flowering varieties of indoor succulent plants: the flowering Rhipsalis. Fuxia, pastel pink, white or orange are some of the tones that we can find in its flowering, which occurs once a year and is long-lasting.
