Rule #2: Do not over water. I find myself having to fight back the urge to water them…these plants are fabulous for people who forget to water! If outdoors, water once every other week, and for indoor watering once a month or longer. Signs that you are over watering will show the leaves turning yellow and almost “rotting” off the plant. Under-watering succulents will show the leaves turning brown and shriveling.
What you will need:1. A shallow pot with a drainage hole on the bottom.
2. A well-draining soil mix (pre-made mixes for cactus & citrus plants work great).
Planting is easy, just make sure the roots are covered in soil…give it a smidge of water, set in sun, forget to water for another week, and voila! If you can handle these little green gems, then I have faith you can handle much more this season.
Love the gorgeous little pots? Well, Gin made them! Yes, I know…she is multi talented. She’s about to launch a new Etsy shop, but if you just can’t wait to get your hands on one of these ceramic beauties you can email her. She’d be more than happy to send one in the mail before the shop officially opens.
