- Choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent water from accumulating at the bottom.
- Succulents prefer a slightly cramped space, so don’t use a pot that’s too large. We recommend choosing a pot that is only one to two inches larger than its current home when repotting.
- Most succulents prefer temperatures between 60-75°F.
- Protect your succulents from drafty doorways and windows. Be mindful if you place them near heaters or fans that may dry out the soil faster and throw off the temperature.
- Feed your succulents with a balanced, diluted fertilizer during the spring and summer. We recommend Espoma’s Succulent and Cactus fertilizer, which can be mixed into your watering can prior to watering.
- Trim leggy or dead growth to encourage a compact and tidy appearance.
- Remove any debris or fallen leaves to prevent pests and diseases.
- Keep an eye out for common pests like aphids and spider mites.
- If you notice any pests, gently wipe the leaves with a damp cloth or use insecticidal soap.
Remember, each succulent variety may have slightly different preferences, so it’s good to research the specific needs of your plants. Enjoy your succulent parenting!
