Succulents - Very Versatile
Another great thing about succulents is that they’re extremely versatile. They look good just about anywhere and can be used for just about anything! Place them in a terrarium, on a bookshelf, on a windowsill, or on your coffee table. The possibilities are endless.
Where do they come from?
Succulents can be found in every continent across the world (except Antarctica, of course!) They tend to grow in dry, arid climates, but they are also known to grow near lakes and on coastlines. Some succulents are epiphytes, meaning they grow on and draw nutrients from other plants and the surrounding air.
Plant Care Tips: Succulents
Light: Succulents love the sun. Try placing them next to a south-facing window where they can get at least 6 hours of sun a day.
Water: Allow soil to dry out before watering. The frequency of watering may vary from plant to plant. Do not water if the soil feels at all moist.
Humidity: Succulents don’t like humidity. Try to keep them as dry as possible, ensuring that the foliage does not get too wet when watering.
Temperature: While they can tolerate colder temperatures, succulents prefer warmer conditions. Try keeping them at temperatures between 15-27°C if you can.
Soil: Use a coarse, well-draining cactus potting mix.
Fertilizer: Apply a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer once or twice a month during the growing season (spring to summer.)
Propagation: You can propagate your succulents by placing individual leaves in soil.
Pets: Non-toxic - safe around pets and children.
Succulents - Common Issues and Questions
Why is my succulent becoming leggy?
If your succulents are subjected to low light levels for prolonged periods, they will start to elongate and bend. Try placing your succulents in a bright location where they can get sufficient sunlight.
My succulents are starting to shrivel. What should I do?
If your succulent is starting to shrivel, it usually means it’s time to water it. Allow soil to dry completely in between watering, but if your succulent starts to shrivel up, it definitely needs water!
The base of my succulent is starting to turn brown. What am I doing wrong?
If your succulent has a brown base, it is probably a sign of overwatering. Succulents are susceptible to root rot, so ensure that you use well-draining soil and allow the soil to dry completely between watering.
Common Pests: Most vulnerable to spider mites and fungus gnats. Treat any infestations with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
