Well-drained soil is very important for indoor succulents. Succulents are grown outdoors often have better airflow than indoor ones so they are less prone to rot. Hence, you need to make sure the soil for indoor succulents is lightweight to ensure the plants will not suffocate and the roots will not get rot when you water them. If you feel like your soil is holding too much moisture, add pumice or perlite to increase its drainage.
A porous pot with a drainage hole is also recommended to aid water evaporation and prevent rot. Terra-cotta or clay pots are the best options for succulent beginners.
Water directly on the soil, not the leaves. Sitting water can cause moldy or rotten leaves so avoid using a spray watering bottle. Soak the soil completely till you see water come out from the drainage hole.
In general, indoor succulents don’t need much fertilizer but you could add some weak fertilizer during the growing season in the soil so they can grow better.
And if you decide to repot your succulents for indoor use, give them 2-3 weeks before moving them indoors so that the roots can get used to the new soil or heal from any root damage when repotting.
