My go-to Succulent Sources

These are all the plants I’ve purchased at The Sill- beautiful and growing constantly.

Purchasing Succulents

If you’re looking for a reliable company to send succulents or other house plants straight to your home, I recommend The Sill! Plants that come from The Sill are healthy and ready to thrive in your home. Their staple slogan is “plants make people happy” and they are so right!

Across the street from my apartment in Brooklyn, there was a temporary pop-up showcasing The Sill and every time I walked by it, I had to stop and enjoy the greenery. Those leisurely stops resulted in 4 succulent purchases from The Sill (pictured above). The cute Hawthoria in the green pot was a sweet surprise gift from a special someone — still one of my favorite gifts to this day. :)<3 If you’re looking for beautiful plants in great condition, The Sill is a great option. And they deliver right to your home, so you can have them delivered to you while you’re sheltering in place!

Succulent Education

For general succulent guidelines and tips, I look to 2 books: A Beginner’s Guide to Succulent Gardening and Succulents (Idiot’s Guide). Both of these were actually given to me as gifts, and they have been so informative and helpful throughout my plant-owning journey!

A Beginner’s Guide to Succulent Gardening goes in depth, showing different categories of succulents and providing a detailed outline of varying seasons for each category of succulent. It tells me when the best time for repotting is and gives a step by step outline of how to pot the different types. Very informative and stunning photography that aesthetically pleases the eye in addition to your succulents.

Succulents (Idiot’s Guide) is an ideal first book for a succulent beginner. It doesn’t dumb things down, but it does make everything simple, clear, and straight to the point. It has helpful sections on root rot prevention and symptoms, as well as a plethora of creative and decorative ways to arrange succulents. Highly recommend this one for the basics!

Succulent Propagation

For detailed propagation, a great online source is The Succulent Scientist. I have only recently found out about her, but so far her articles are very informative and thorough. I have already found some things that I need to change in my propagation routine to find the best results.

This website offers plant delivery as well plant essentials, but the best part of the website is free: her blog posts about propagation.
