How to Care for Succulents

Sunlight: Place your succulents in a sunny spot where they can receive at least six hours of sunlight per day. South or west-facing windows are ideal.

Watering: Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Water your succulents deeply, but infrequently, ensuring that excess water drains out of the bottom of the pot to prevent root rot.

Well-Draining Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix specifically formulated for succulents and cacti. Avoid heavy or water-retentive soils, as they can cause root rot.

Temperature: Succulents prefer warm temperatures between 60°F to 80°F (15°C to 27°C). Protect them from extreme cold or frost.

Air Circulation: Provide good air circulation around your succulents to prevent humidity buildup and discourage pests and diseases.

Fertilizing: Feed your succulents with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half-strength during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the dormant winter months.

By following these simple care tips, you can enjoy healthy and thriving succulents in your home or garden.
