Hi! My name is Vincent and I'm the proud owner of really cheap succulents! So these succulents I got super cheap at Walmart and they make me so happy because they are adorable, low matenence, and over all perfect for my dorm room. This is my first time owning plants and I really want to keep these alive because of how awesome they are! I know for sure one is a lucky bamboo, from a quick Google search on earth appears to be a red and green Haworthia fasciata, and the last one I don't know. I've tried to attach pictures hopefully they go through! Any tips to make sure they stay healthy? Thanks! -Vincent

Welcome to the forum Vincent. Succulents grow best outdoors in full sun, when indoors it's difficult to provide the necessary light for a happy plant. You could supplement the needed light with a T5 HO 65K fixture/bulb, these start about $20 at Amazon. In the mean time place these guys in a west or south window, direct light is key.
