Even the most avid gardener welcomes those plants which need minimal attention. Many people who always say they don't have a green thumb are also finding success and enjoyment from succulents.
For those reasons, Gene Klotz of Klotz Floral and Garden Center notes that succulents are becoming increasingly more popular in this area.
While some varieties of succulents have been popular for a long time such as hens-and-chicks, snake plant, jade plant and aloe vera, there are likely thousands of varieties available.
Klotz says he has really noticed a boom in the interest in the last three years and attributes that success to the wide variety in the various plants, their ease to plant and ease to care for.
Many succulents also work well in the popular miniature and fairy gardens which are also growing in popularity.
