Care Information

The success of your succulents depends on a variety of factors, most notably watering and light. Below are some guidelines to follow that will help ensure that your succulents will stay healthy and happy.

Pruning Tips:
Succulents leaves can be removed to start new offsets. Once succulents begin to outgrow the container, we recommend repotting them.

Fertilizing:
We recommend fertilizing your succulent if the leaves begin to turn yellow or color is off. We recommend a succulent fertilizer such as Cactus Juice.

Lighting:
Succulents need natural sunlight to stay healthy so make sure to choose a bright location. If placed in full sunlight, watch the leaves for burning if the light is too intense. However succulents can adapt very well to new locations.

Temperature Requirements:
Succulents prefer warmer locations. Protect them from freezing during the winter.

Watering Requirements:
Succulents can be easily overwatered which can lead to root rot. Water your succulents only when they are dry.

Repotting:
If repotting, use a fast draining soil mix. This will prevent the development of root rot.

Indoor / Outdoor:
Succulents can thrive both indoor and outdoor with the appropriate lighting requirements.
