Succulents are the plant for any busy teen that has a green thumb. Succulents are becoming one of the most popular plants on social media because of how pretty and easy they are to take care of. Most succulents are easy to take care of because they are in the cactus family which means they require little water, most succulents you only need to water them once every ten to fourteen days.
Personally, as a busy teenager who has to juggle schoolwork, debate team, and the track and field team it’s nice to have a plant that I can forget about for a few days and when I remember I have a plant it’s not dead because I forgot to water it or put it into the sunlight.
According to verywellfamily.com, most high school students who play sports usually practice between two to ten hours per week and that doesn’t include schoolwork, chores, or hanging out with their friends. If you were to put all of the amount of hours dedicated to schoolwork, chores, sports practices, sports games, and hanging out with friends, they barely have time to be at home and relax.
So when students barely have enough time to relax why should they want to add a plant to their busy lives that need a lot of attention and that is why succulents are becoming extremely popular with busy teenagers.
As an added bonus according to FTD.com, there are over 500 different succulent varieties and you can pick one that matches who you are as a person.
