1. Home Depot
First, when buying succulent from shop, you need to avoid choosing the following conditions plant:
A) Leaves that easy to fall off.
B) yellow leaves
C) black stem
D) tranparen stem
You can slightly bump the leaves but do this very gently.
From this, you can find out the early signs of the damaged plant if the succulent has been overwatered. Choose the succulent that is more than one plant and big size.
Large-sized succulents are easier to take care of and are good for beginners. I would choose the succulent that comes with more than one plant.
I would cut off the stem, plant it in another container, and have another one. In this case, it’s not easy to kill all of the succulents. Buy Online
