I've had succulents for a few years now but I recently decided I needed more! Not only more plants but knowledge on how to make my plants the happiest & healthiest. After I found Andrea on youtube I just could not stop watching her videos, she just has this knowledge & personality that kept me wanting more! I have not read her whole book, with a 10 month old it's a bit hard, but the parts I have read are informational & even though we live in different parts of the country I just know this book is going to help me & my succulants to be happy together. I only wish I found her & this book sooner!!
