Succulents Care

Succulents are a diverse group of plants with thick, fleshy leaves and stems that store water. The majority of succulents are native to hot, arid climates, but with the right care, they can be grown almost anywhere.


Light

Because succulents hail from environments with lots of sunlight, they tend to crave a good amount of UV rays. At a minimum, most succulents need more than six hours of light daily. Aim to place plants in a south- or west-facing window for the best results.

As a general rule, most succulents can handle more shade in hotter, dryer climates, and will need more sun in cooler climates.


Soil

A porous and well-draining soil with a loose and grainy texture is ideal for succulents to ensure they aren't sitting in water for an extended period of time. If you don't use a well-draining soil, you may have to adjust your watering habits to keep your plants from drying out or getting root rot. 


Water

This is where the low-maintenace part really comes in. When it comes to watering succulents, neglect is best. While the frequency of watering will depend on the species and your growing conditions, most succulents should be left to dry out completely between waterings. That means your succulent's soil should be bone-dry and crumbly before you give it another drink. If the leaves and stems start to wrinkle and get brown, that's a sign your plant is dehydrated and needs to be watered.


Temperature and Humidity

Most succulents prefer temperatures between 40- and 80-degrees Fahrenheit and humidity levels between 40 and 60 percent. Since succulents have adapted to desert extremes, they're pretty good at handling both hot and cold conditions within reason.


Fertilizer

While growing succulents in containers, the succulent will appreciate periodic fertilizing when it's actively growing. Try a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer, such as 10-10-10.
