WOW temperature is at 30 degrees at 1:00 pm. Blue, clear sky so it is very nice out. So different than Monday when it was below zero. ENJOY is all I can say.
I am going to show a few succulents so you can identify yours. Really this is for me, to learn their names. Only 14,000 different succulents. See if you recognize them.
Low-Light Succulents That'll Grow Without Bright Light By TAYLOR FULLER
Even in a home with little natural light, you can still have plants, including succulents. There are several low-light succulents that can grow without bright light. They might not flourish or grow as readily as in partial or bright light, but they'll get by.Most succulents are drought intolerant, meaning you don’t have to water them very often, so they are pretty easy to take care of once you learn their needs.
Can Succulents Grow in Low Light?
Succulents can grow in low light, though they may not grow as much as they would in bright, indirect light. They can't grow in complete darkness, so try to find at the least a partially shaded spot. They may start to get a bit leggy as they do search for the sun, but you can prune and propagate to fix its look.
Succulents That Grow in Low Light
Desert Rose (Echeveria lilacina)
The thick, fleshy leaves of this succulent hold water, so you don’t have to water it too frequently. Desert rose gets its name from its habitat and its resemblance to a rose.
Most people think of the cool gel that you rub on sunburns when someone says aloe vera. That gel actually comes from the leaves of this plant. The leaves can grow pretty thick, can be broken off, and the gel used to treat burns. It will do fine in low light, however if you want it to grow bigger, you should give it some light.
Burro's tail gets its name from the long, thick, dangling leaves. Some say they resemble a donkey’s tail, its other common name. This plant is sensitive to overwatering so let the soil dry out completely between watering to avoid the leaves getting mushy.
Name: Burro’s Tail (Sedum morganianum)
Light: Prefers bright, indirect light but will survive in light shade
