Succulent Care

Succulents are beautiful and unique plants that can be planted in a variety of ways. Succulent care is important as they are plants that don't need much watering and over-watering can cause them to rot. Unfortunately over-watering is a common way these plants die. Although there are a variety of succulents the care for them is generally the same.

Follow these easy to remember simple steps to assure your succulents stay alive and beautiful.

Water

Tips:

  • Water succulent enough so the soil is soaked.

  • Water every 7-10 days but only IF soil is dry. Let soil dry between waterings.

  • Never let the plant sit in water.

  • Water less in the winter, about once every other month.

  • Allow generous watering during the summer.

  • Always make sure the plants pot has a drain and use fast draining soil.

Sunlight

Tips:

  • Keep succulent in an area where it will receive a lot of sun.

  • No more than 5 hours of direct sunlight.

  • Add shade during the summer.
