Succulents are the ultimate student-friendly plants
That's right. What plants are more, um, chill about being neglected, left to their own devices, than succulents? Orientations, classes, parties, er, social functions, games, finals. Those come and go, but plants are always there for when the student(s) in your life needs a breather between assignments. A time to stop and admire the living treasure by their window or kitchen slider, or under the skylight in the common area.(Hey, it's possible that a dorm common area somewhere has a skylight!) Some of our faves for lower light spaces are haworthias, string of pearls, certain aloes, and gasterias, among others. Areas bathed in bright light have more options.
