is wicking a proper way to water succulent plants
Wicking is when you put water into a container and use a "wick" in water and other end into the soil. I use this with my African Violet. It is over 7 yrs old and blooms several times a year. Is wicking suitable for succulents plants too?

Depends on the kind of soil you are using. Many succulents will be potted in a sandy soil, to ensure a good drainage. This kind of soil is not very compatible with wicking.
But, if the succulent is potted in normal potting soil, wicking would be a good way to keep the soil moist, but not too much so for what a succulent needs.
