Succulents have become a very popular home decoration over the last several years. These drought-resistant plants can be found at garden centers, botanical gardens, wedding receptions, office lobbies, apartments, and other various locations throughout New York City.

NYC Succulents Rise in Popularity

Once an afterthought, succulents have become extremely popular in metropolitan areas like NYC and within the millennial community. The extremely low maintenance required for succulents is definitely a big reason. Also known as the plants that take care of themselves, a simple watering every now and then will be just fine.

LOW MAINTENANCE AND LOW WATER IS NOT THE SAME AS NO MAINTENANCE AND NO WATER! Like all plants, you do need to care for your succulents, keep an eye on the soil and when it gets dry, re-water (once a week or so should suffice). The same goes for feeding, while usually only requiring one feeding a year, it’s a feeding you can’t forget! Here are a few more tips to keep those NYC succulents healthy.

  1. Get Your Succulent Some Sun (place near the brightest window or area)
  2. Use The Right Soil (i.e. a fast drain cactus mix)
  3. Clip and Cure (let your clippings dry!)

Aside from the easy maintenance, when it comes to succulents, there is so much variety. From all the different succulents to pots, to layout design, you’ll never run out of options! 

The Benefits of Having Succulents

Yes, succulents don’t require a lot of attention and there are many options, but they also provide a ton of health benefits! Here are some of them:

  1. Succulents Help You Breathe – All plants produce oxygen, we know this. But did you know succulents are one of the few plants that actually produce oxygen for you 24 hours a day? Keeping succulents next to your bed can provide that extra boost of oxygen you need to get a good night’s sleep!
  1. Succulents Purify The Air – Besides providing oxygen, succulents actually purify the air around us. A NASA study found that succulents remove 87% of volatile organic compounds (VOC); so what? VOC toxins are also found in ink, cigarette smoke, and grocery bags!
  1. Succulents Help You Focus – Over the years, numerous studies have found that retention and concentration improve when plants are in the room or when people are around plants. The University of Michigan for example, conducted a study that found retention increases by 20% when plants are present. This is why small plants like succulents are great for your desk or apartment; they barely take up any space! It may be time to spruce up your living space or office space with beautiful NYC succulents.
  1. Succulents Can Practically Live Anywhere – Circling back to the simple maintenance, succulents can live anywhere in your apartment as long as you do the simple feeding and watering. NYC succulents truly are a great option for adding greenery and visual interest to your home or office space.
