Succulents are the perfect college student plant. Plants bring life to the dim college dorm room, but are typically hard to care for, at least for me. Succulents are great because they require little attention, only needing to be watered every few weeks. Even better, you can have little pots so that they don’t take up too much space in your room, unlike some other plants which grow quite large. Succulents can make a great gift, too! I have yet to meet someone who does not enjoy a good succulent, and the array of options at flower shops and on Amazon make it easy to find the perfect one for yourself or a friend.
