Succulents are not really "basically indestructible." It's a common misconception, but they need care and specific conditions, just like any other plants. The enormous variety also results in an enormous variety of needs that are hard to generalize about and easy to get wrong. Beginners and experts kill them all the time. No offense to you, you're just repeating what you've heard, but this is a pet peeve of mine because it then discourages people that much more when the plants die.

Thank you so much for the follow-up information on succulents. I am sharing the info with my followers. I love succulents, but have very little experience with caring for them (or plants in general), so it is nice to have some information from someone that does. I hope this doesn’t deter anyone from giving them a try, but will clarify what expectations they should have. They truly are a beautiful plant with so many interesting varieties.
