10 Best Types of Succulents to Grow Indoors (Pictures + Care Tips)

If you’re looking for plants that thrive indoors, then succulents are the way to go. And today, we’re looking at 10 of the best types of succulents to perk up your living or work space.

Aloe Vera

One of the most popular types of indoor succulents to grow is Aloe Vera. But Aloe is also found growing wild throughout the world throughout tropical, semi-tropical, and arid climates.


Ponytail Palm

With a swollen base to store water, Ponytail Palms can survive with very little effort. And they grow well in low nutrient soil, or rocky earth.


Hens and Chicks

Since they’re an alpine plant, Hens and Chicks do well in low quality soil. And they can even withstand unsavory conditions.



Lithops are about as unique as succulents get. With a pebble-like appearance, a large variety of species, and a multitude of colors, it’s no surprise how sought-after they are.


Frizzle Sizzle

And they’re very easy to take care of. However, since they’re a flowering plant, you’ll need to be mindful to remove any dead flowers. That way, the plant can grow new flowers and thrive for years.


Burro’s Tail

As long as your container drains well, and you keep the plant in heavy sunlight, Burro’s Tail succulents grow wonderfully indoors.


Zebra Cactus

They are hardy succulents, and are resistant to drought. So, if you’re always forgetting to water your plants, this is the plant for you.
