TIPS FOR GROWING SUCCULENTS:
- Succulents prefer full sun.
- When planting succulents in pots, make sure your container has a drainage hole. Potted succulents need a regular watering schedule too. Pots without a drainage hole are susceptible to root rot.
- Don’t compact soil too hard when first planting succulents and cacti. This will prevent air from getting through the soil and will make it harder during waterings to drain.
- Succulent gardens are a fun way to get creative with your plants. This is the best soil for succulents to get you going with your DIY projects. You can even add it to garden soil!
- Growing succulents outdoors is very different than growing succulents indoors. They require much more water due to the weather. Indoor succulents only need to be watered once or twice a month; alternatively outdoor plants need watering once or twice every two weeks. Get to know your plant. Water when the soil is completely dry, water when needed.
- Too much water can be absorbed by their fleshy leaves and can harm your plants depending on the type of succulent.
