What Are The Best Succulents For A New Hobbyist?
I've just started loving succulents and wanted your insight on what would be the best for a new lover (me!...lol).
I have to say the Crassula variety just caught my attention! I like the following Crassulas:
1. Crassula perforata variegata
2. Crassula alpestris
3. Crassula 'Buddha's Temple'
4. Crassula carallina
5. Crassula commutata
6. Crassula 'Green Pagoda'
7. Crassula 'Ivory Pagoda'
8. Crassula 'Moonglow'
9. Crassula perforata
- Crassula 'Tom Thumb'
I saw them on this website: http://www.thesucculentgarden.com.au/crass.html
Would those (Crassulas), especially the 10 mentioned above, be a good option for me? What are good light, water, care, etc. tips?
What other succulents do you recommend for a newbie?
Also, do succulents go dormant? And if so do they loose all the foliage during the period of dormancy or do they just stop growing but the foliage will stay the same?
FYI: I live in NYC and the plant would be in a bright window.
