Florida Succulent Challenges

Growing succulents in Florida can be a challenge because the counterpart to our dry season is the wet season, making it difficult to sustain the dry growing conditions that succulents require.

And yet they recommend planting:

The Thai crown of thorns blooms year round. Kalanchoe ‘fantastic’ has colorful, mottled leaves. The Fishhook Aloe. Senecio ‘Blue Chalk’ is aptly named. The ‘mother of thousands’ Kalanchoe has a upright, striking bloom. Euphorbia ‘Firesticks’.

That’s a lot of succulents to be mworried about the Florida humidity and wet season. So many potential problems! And yet, a lot of people seem to grow a lot of succulents in Florida, so maybe it’s OK after all.
