We all know that succulents are supposedly impossible to kill. That’s meant to be their main selling point. That unlike goldfish and regular, every day, run-of-the-mill garden centre plants, those trendy, spiky little fellas are virtually indestructible.

Well, I am calling bull… sugar.

I have killed one succulent from neglect and another from over-watering (please, like that’s a real thing).

But good news, plant killers! This succulent candle from Primark really will never die. Unless, of course you, set it alight, but that’s more a purposeful melt than an accidental death.

Which, um, might be better?
