Plant Care:

Succulents

Description:

Succulents have the ability to thrive on limited water sources, such as mist and dew, which makes them equipped to survive in an ecosystem which contains scarce water sources.

Pets And Kids:

Some succulents are safe for children and pets; however, ingesting this succulent can irritate the mouth and stomach, sometimes causing vomiting.

Plant Parent Care Tips:

  • Succulents love direct sun, but will lean towards the light. Rotate often. Rotating them will help them stand up straight. 
  • Don’t water indoor succulents daily. That’s the quickest way to kill them.
  • Don’t fret if leaves fall off. You can use succulent cuttings to grow new plants (called ‘propagating’). To propagate, simply let the succulent leaf dry in the sun, and plant it in dirt and water.

General Care:

Water:

Water once a week or every 10 days and allow soil to dry out between watering. The number one way to kill a fiddle leaf fig is to overwater it or not allow for proper drainage. It does prefer a humid environment, so mist from time to time.

Sunlight:

Bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight.

Placement:

Choose an area that isn’t directly in line with an exterior door, drafty window or near an air vent. Choose a bright room, close to the window but not in direct light.

Food:

Very low needs. You may fertilize your succulents once per year.

Common Issues:

Upper leaves getting wilted, wrinkled, and crispy dry: Symptom of underwatering

Older leaves turning yellow, transparent and soggy: Symptom of overwatering

Stretches or become leggy with elongated growth: Symptom of inadequate light

Interesting Fact

While the most common succulent colour is green, you can find them in almost any colour of the rainbow, including red, orange, yellow, and purple.
