If you regularly read my writings, you are aware that I frequently use instances from my own life to illustrate my points. This time, I’ll do the same. I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a nature junkie and lover; I can’t imagine living a day without my plants, especially my succulents.

I have a large number of them, and I first began growing and caring for succulents while I was a student. I don’t quite know how many succulents I have at home, but everyone who knows me well would buy me one without a doubt if they wanted to give me a gift.

There are several sorts of them, each with a varied growth time and, of course, various influencing elements. Some of them want sunlight, while others require shade, and some desire more water than others. Succulents are, in my opinion, incredibly attractive plants, so if you’re into gardening, go for them.

Some of you might be interested in a succulent that develops more quickly than others, but you may not be sure which succulents fall into that category. In that case, don’t worry; I’m here to help. I’ve created a list of succulents with quick growth. There are a lot of them, and it is now time to begin the main portion of my post, which most of you are anticipating.

Examples of Fast Growing Succulents

1. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is one of the most well-known and well-liked succulents, therefore there is no way that anyone hasn’t heard of it. The most intriguing feature of this succulent is how quickly it develops; a new plant may be created from an old one in just six weeks, and when it begins to grow old once more, it generates another new plant.

Around the world, it is grown in subtropical areas with hot, dry temperatures. Additionally, it has certain medicinal uses and is applied topically to cure sunburn. Place your Aloe Vera where it will receive at least six hours of direct sunshine each day, and water it about every three weeks, if you want it to grow and thrive properly.

2. Jade Plant Succulent (Crassula Ovata)

Since I already have one at home, I must admit that this succulent, which can be grown both inside and outdoors, is one of the fastest-growing and easiest to care for succulents. They simply don’t need much work to grow anyplace.

There is a notion that this succulent would bring luck to its owner because it is frequently referred to as a fortunate plant or money plant. This succulent also has a sweet meaning attached to it. Jade Succulents require at least four hours of direct sunshine daily and should be watered once every two to three weeks.

3.String of Buttons (Crassula Perforata)

Its fascinating name is not a coincidence; it is a result of the way its leaves are sliced, which is highly distinctive. Additionally, the Crassula perforata is a succulent that grows quickly both inside and outdoors. It has a 10-inch maximum height and a 2-foot maximum width.

The String of Buttons may take over the best area of your garden and has a fantastic appearance. It is also one of the succulents that I enjoy the most. The rows of leaves have recognizable holes running through them.

This succulent needs a lot of sunshine to develop quickly because it is not a cold-hardy plant. It is ideal to put it in a pot that can be moved indoors. One to two times each week, you should water the plant, making sure to moisten the soil and not the top of the plant.

4. Irish Rose Succulent (Aeonium Aboreum)

This one is a tree-like succulent with a rose-like look. It is quite lovely. Both indoors and outdoors, this succulent may grow to be quite enormous. From late winter to early spring, it flowers a golden blossom and grows quickly.

This succulent is indigenous to the Canary Islands, where several aeonium varieties are produced. The beautiful thing about Irish Rose succulents is that they can tolerate lower temperatures as well. They are full sun plants. It should receive five to six hours of direct sunshine each day and receive water once a week, being careful not to give it more than it requires.

5. Aeonium Sunburst

From the same family as the Irish Rose Succulent, this succulent also resembles a tree. One of the succulents that grow quickly and flowers its offsets are Aeonium Sunburst. Because it may become up to 18 inches tall, it is referred to as a succulent tree.

It may be grown both indoors and outside, but don’t forget that this succulent likes full light, soils with dry to medium moisture levels, and good drainage. This succulent needs more frequent watering than most succulents do, and the best way to do it is to let the soil dry out between waterings. It should be irrigated once a week.

6. Devil’s Backbone (Kalanchoe Diagremontana)

This succulent is quite intriguing since it goes by several names, including devil’s backbone, mother of thousands, and alligator plant, which is my personal favorite. Originally from Madagascar is this one. It has a significant function in medicine, particularly in traditional cures, in addition to being quite attractive and growing quickly.

It is advised for the healing of wounds as well as the treatment of a variety of diseases and conditions, including ulcers, diabetes, asthma, arthritis, and skin issues. It is advisable to plant this succulent in a professional cactus soil mixture since it requires adequate drainage.

We should place it in bright but indirect light for several hours each day to grow it in the best possible way. Watering it more frequently than necessary won’t make it grow any quicker because this succulent is particularly sensitive to water. It just needs to be watered once every few weeks.

7. Echeveria Prolifica

Another succulent that develops quickly is this one, which is also among the most attractive. Silvery-green leaves offset widely and spread via stolons to produce thick, low mats.

The leaves of this succulent might become a little pinkish when grown in direct sunlight. They are not at all difficult, so they can grow both indoors and outdoors, but there are certain fundamental guidelines we need to be aware of to ensure appropriate growth.

I should start by emphasizing that water shouldn’t remain in the rosette because doing so might lead to decay or a fungal illness. When you see that the soil is dry, you may water this succulent because it is not very sensitive to overwatering. It also needs at least six hours of direct sunlight each day.
