These charming little plants do not need full sun to survive.
Not all types of succulents require full sun to survive. Some plants in this category do well in the shade, as long as they have access to good light for photosynthesis. Discover the best species of succulents to grow in the shade.
Some areas of the house, or even the apartment, do not receive direct sunlight. Even with these conditions, some plants develop and do not need so much maintenance. And to make the plants even more beautiful, you can use cement vases, clay pots or cute colourful pots.
Before presenting the succulents list, you need to understand the concept of lighting. There are species in full sun (which need at least 4 hours of sun per day), those in half shade (which survive with filtered light) and those in shadow (which develop with very little light).
1 – Aloe Pepe
Aloe Pepe is an easy-to-grow succulent that likes environments with half shade. The plant was developed from the crossing of two species from Madagascar. It is, therefore, a dwarf hybrid that forms rosettes with its leaves. Usually, the same Aloe Pepe gives several side seedlings.
2 – Haworthia turgid
With its small, swollen leaves, turgid Haworthia brings a bit of green to any furniture in your home. It is a plant that stores a lot of water and does not need direct sunlight to keep it beautiful.
