How Not to Kill Succulents?

Post 1 #Gardening #PlantCare

Succulents look very fragile and dainty but they’re very resilient plants. We should take care of them accordingly and at times extra care and attention do lead to their demise. As an amateur gardener, these are the right kind of plants to start with.


I’ve also recently started to pursue my passion for gardening and took in various plants. Though My Gardening journey is still in its early stages, I’m keeping my fingers crossed and hoping to be better in it soon.

Succulents are versions of Cactus they don’t need a lot of water and care, some level of attention would be needed for their better flourishment.

All Cactus are succulents but not all succulents are cactus.

Keep it in direct Sunlight

Succulents love light. Few newly planted succulents may wilt in harsh summer light but overall they love the direct sun. 6-8 hours of sunlight is great for its proper growth.

Keep on rotating the plant

At times if one side is facing the sun constantly then succulent tends to lean towards sunlight so keep on rotating then in few days for even exposure.

Very limited watering

They’re more liable to die of overwatering than underwatering. Only water the plant when you feel that soil is dry. Once in 3 days in summers and once in 5-6 days in winters or even less frequently if you feel that soil is still moist.

Water the soil

Don’t drown the plant with water gently pour water in the soil till it’s soaked.

Plant in pots with a drainage hole

Don’t plant succulents in pots without a drainage hole. If you’ve already planted it then keep extra care of sparsely watering it. Else it may die.

Fertilize once in a year

Pin It

They don’t need frequent fertilization so you should do it in once in a year and preferably in summers.

Plant in soil, not sand or dirt

Succulents come in varieties I hope you love them as much as I do…

Happy Gardening to all
