Staffer celebrates succulents

I can’t grow plants. Whenever I receive a plant, either from school or as a gift, they never seem to last long, no matter what I do. After giving up on traditional plants, I tried growing succulents, which come in all varieties, colors and sizes. Some even have flowers! They are super easy to grow; in fact, some succulents can even reproduce too much, leaving you with enough plants that you can give some away to friends. For me, the best part about having a succulent for a houseplant is that they’re virtually impossible to kill. Succulents have adapted to survive in harsh conditions, since they come from the desert. I bet that I could forget to water them for a whole year, and they would probably still survive.
