Calling All Plant Parents: Amazon Is Having a One-Day Sale on Succulents
Are you a plant parent looking to grow your brood? Or maybe considering getting your family started? Today might be the day to take the leap. Amazon is offering 25 percent off succulents in four, five, 12, or even 20 packs. These mini succulents (each comes in two-inch square planters) come in a variety pack and can be planted together in terrariums or planters or alone in small pots. The succulents also come fully rooted in the soil, making them easy to re-pot as soon as you get them.

If you’re surprised you can buy plants online, you’re not alone. But it’s a growing trend (one we wrote about in 2017), and it’s possible to ship healthy plants right to your door. In the case of these succulents, they’re shipped directly to you when they’re ready to be placed in your home, no sitting on a shelf at a store first.
Once you get them, you just have to carefully unpack them and place them in indirect or soft light. All succulent varieties in the sale were selected to grow indoors, meaning you don’t have to worry too much about where they go. (If you are looking for outside plants, however, this will do well outside too–just make sure its in an area where it can drain and not be exposed to too much rain if you’re in a wet climate.) The best part about succulents? You don’t even need to water them unless the soil is completely dry. (As we’ve pointed out before, death by over-watering is one of the most common ways to kill this desert-loving plant.)
The plants come with a care guide, but you can also check out our own guide to keeping them alive and thriving. There are even tips for the best way to re-pot them and even propagate them. But before you do that, you gotta buy some! So hurry–this deal will be gone tomorrow.
