Besides the fact that they're super trendy, super cute, and super affordable, the best thing about succulents is that even people with a track record of killing every form of greenery they touch—ahem, guilty—can keep them alive pretty easily. They come in all shapes, colors, and sizes for you to purchase—depending on how large your windowsill is, of course—and complement almost every style out there.
Retailers have jumped on the succulent trend quickly, and buying them for your home has never been easier. Plenty of local grocery stores, like Whole Foods, have made purchasing these teeny plants as easy as picking up your weekly groceries. Even clothing stores like Urban Outfitters have added tiny succulents to their catalog of random things you can buy.
Recently, Costco hopped on the bandwagon and has begun selling entire gardens of them with prices as low as $20, according to one Reddit user. Comments below the eye-opening post have users saying "that's a steal" and asking Costco to "just take my money!" and honestly, same. Tiny versions of succulents may be adorable, but buying them in Costco's signature bulk style fashion is an entirely new addition to the plant game.
But with great succulents come great responsibility—fine, just okay responsibility—so make sure you're properly caring for your new household plants. Just mist them with a little water every 10 to 14 days, give them a little indirect sunlight, and let the soil dry out between "mistings," and you should be fine.
Oh, and if you find yours is on the brink of death, don't fear—these tricks may help revive the little guy.
