About the Author
My name is Cassidy Tuttle and I'm a professional photographer turned succulent addict. My adventure with succulents started with three small plants on the window sill of my basement apartment. Within a year I had propagated them and purchased more, totaling over 100 plants! It’s been a fun adventure since then as I've drowned, burned, frozen, and starved my collection of succulents. I teach you how to avoid all those mistakes I made or help you recover from them. While I’ve killed plenty of succulents in the last few years, I’ve also kept hundreds alive and thriving, and I know you can do the same!
