How many succulents do you need to make a succulent Christmas tree?
How many succulents you need will vary, depending on the size of your tree. In this DIY, Graham has used around 50 succulents. But that doesn't mean you have to go out and buy 50 succulent plants. Some succulent plants can give you more than one clipping. Here's how to prepare succulent cuttings.
How do you take care of a succulent Christmas tree?
Succulents can thrive indoors under the right conditions. They need plenty of direct sunlight and hate being too wet. Water your succulents deeply and then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
