Succulents are on the rise in today's modern world. Luckily, we are here to provide these beautiful plants!
But, first things first. In order to keep them bright and beautiful, you'll need to know some of the basics. The nice thing for you is that these plants are SUPER easy to take care of and we have mastered caring for them.
Let's start with watering. A commonly known method for watering is the ice cube method and if you use that method, make sure you keep reading! Succulents are not like normal plants, they are structured differently and require a different watering regiment. Succulents do not need to be watered frequently but DO need a sufficient amount of water, when it's time. So, make sure the soil is COMPLETELY dust dry before you water, and when you do water, soak it. We typically tell people, if the planter is small enough, fill up your sink, with cool water, and fully submerge your planter. After a few seconds of it bubbling, pull it out and let it drain through the hole of the planter at the bottom. If your planter doesn't have a hole, slowly tip the planter to the side and let the excess water drip out.
You can typically wait between 2-3 weeks before having to water your succulent.
Now, the reason these plants don't need frequent watering is because the leaves hold water, letting the plant have access to water when it needs it. So, if you see that the leaves of your succulent are starting to look dry and shriveled up, you know it needs water. But, don't worry. Succulents are pretty hardy so it should make a full recovery!
