Water

When and how much should you water your succulent garden? This is the most asked question by the succulent lovers and I need to say that there is a misconception that they don’t need much water. The truth is that they can live long time without water, but they can’t thrive in a drought-like situation. If you don’t water them regularly, they may won’t die, but they either won’t grow. If you water them frequently, your succulents will flourish and will look marvelous. You should water them once a week during the sunny months and a little less when the days are cold. When you water them you should water the soil not the succulent. Some people are killing their beautiful plants by over watering and if you don’t want to kill your plants, make sure the soil is dry before you water them.
