Home hack: brighten up your room with a succulent

“First, you need to add rocks to your pot for drainage, then add some succulent soil, which is drier than regular potting soil and allows the water to evaporate more quickly. Next, squeeze the starter pot to loosen the roots and soil, remove the plant and put it in the new pot. Pick away any dead or soft leaves near the base of the plant. Push away stray leaves and firmly pack in the soil but not too firmly. Finish with some dried and decorative materials—just be sure not to cover any leaves.”
