Tender Loving Care For Your Succulents
Succulents growing in pots need well-draining soil and should be planted in a pot with a hole in the bottom to get rid of excess water.
Here are some “must dos” for your succulent:
- Succulents are sun lovers, but they do not require to be in it all day. Your succulent is happy in a warm well light spot with a minimum of 4 hours of direct sunlight each day.
- Your succulent requires minimal water. They love to have a good drenching and to completely dry out before their next watering. A general rule is to water it once a week in summer and once a month in winter. Over watering is the main killer of succulents.
- Although your succulent looks great in the bathroom, large, regular changes in humidity makes it hard for it to thrive.

NOTE: It is normal for your succulent to lose leaves from the bottom as it grows.
Planting Succulent Cuttings
When you receive a succulent cuttings, they have been freshly cut and are nearly ready for planting. Once the bottom of your succulents has dried out and have formed a callus, they are ready for a new home. This generally forms a few days after receiving your gift pack. Once dried out, plant your succulents in well-draining soil either in a pot or in the garden. If using a pot, make sure it is planted in a pot with a hole in the bottom to get rid of excess water. Over watering is the main killer of succulents!
Plant your cuttings by making a small hole in the soil. Place your succulents into the space and cover with soil.
Usually succulents do not like a lot of water, but as they establish their roots, it is best to water them every 2 - 4 days. Keep an eye on them and water just before the soil completely dries out. As they get used to living in their new home, they may lose some bottom leaves and look a little dry at first. In roughly 4 weeks you will see new growth.
After 4 weeks your succulents just need a little TLC to ensure they lasts a long time. The Potted Succulent section above outlines some “must dos” for your plants.
