Doing Succulents The Right Way

Succulent Plants Care Tips

A good number of people tend to buy succulents for more than one reason. One would not only need to know a variety of succulents in the market but would also need to know where to buy them just in case he or she needs them. One would need to ensure that he or she has familiarized himself or herself with taking care of the succulents such that he or she can be in a position to take care of them upon buying them. It would also be essential for one to know that succulent plants may appear dull at one point of the year especially when being shipped and appear to be bright at the other part of the year especially when they have enough exposure to the sun. One would also need to know that these plants tend to intensify in color when placed in the sunlight. Depending on the type of succulent you have planted, you can be sure that it will be at its best color at a specific time of the year which may be different from other varieties.

One would need to make sure that he or she succulents are exposed to the sun for some time during the day. However, one would need to make sure that he or she provides the succulent plants in question with a shade where the sun is very hot. During summer, one would need to make sure that he or she provides a shade to the succulents. During planting, one would need to ensure that he or she remove plants from the pots and plant. One would need to make sure that the soil remains the same level with the plant. One would then ensure a layer of pea gravel or even pebbles making the area look aesthetically viable.

One would also need to make sure that the soil in which the succulents grow on is well-drained soil. To make sure that the succulents do not get dry during summer, one would need to make sure that he or she plants them at the lowest part of the garden. It would be wise for one to add sand, pebbles or even gravel to ensure that the soil becomes well drained. One would also need to ensure a drainage hole at the bottom or at least ensure crushed rock before adding soil on the planting medium. One would need to make sure that he or she waters the succulent plants generously after planting after which he or she should let the water dry between watering. You would also need to know that most succulents demand only very little amounts of fertilizers which can be done at least once every month.
