I'm sorry, but I'm clearly out of touch. Crochet succulents?

Why.

    Why.

Because unlike a real succulent, a crochet succulent requires exactly 0 effort to maintain. A real succulent by comparison requires approximately 0 effort to maintain.

A crochet succulent will thrive in and brighten up that windowless corner of your finished basement, and it will never stab you. Unless you mix rose thorns into the stuffing.
