Small Succulents – There are many types of succulents that grow well in Florida in partial or full sun. Two of our favorites are the Ghost Plant and the Jade Bush. Both grow really quickly with fun shapes and most don’t have Spines or thorns. Another great thing about succulents is that they propagate very easily through trimmings and also through the leaves themselves. This enables you to grow beautiful and easy gifts for your friends and family.
Cactus – Cacti are very easy to grow and do well in sandy soil. Many have beautiful flowers through the summer and the spring. Did you also know that there are many types of Cacti that do not have spikes? I would recommend if you are putting a cactus in the ground and not in a pot to consider only planting the kind without spikes or thorns. If not, growth can really become a headache when it is time to trim because you are very likely to scratch your hand or get splinters from tiny sharp spines.
