Caring for Succulents

Succulents in unique 1 300x259 Caring for Succulents

We can tell our customers love succulents! Since we started selling succulents last month, we’ve had a few questions about how to care for them. The below should help. As always, you can stop by the store and we’ll be glad to help or call us at 972-635-7878.

Zones:
HARDY SUCCULENTS when placed in the sunlight will intensify in color. Sempervivums change color with the seasons and each variety has its own most colorful time of the year.

Light:
Most varieties need at least half a day to a full day of sunlight. In extremely hot areas some afternoon shade is recommended.

Planting:
Remove plants from their pots and plant making sure the soil level remains the same depth on the plant. Once established, your succulents will benefit from a layer of pebbles or pea gravel spread on the soil around the plant. This is also very decorative.

Soil:
Succulents need good draining soil. When planting in the garden, make sure the area drains well and is not in a low spot that would stay wet. For container planting you can incorporate sand, gravel or volcanic rock for better drainage. The container you are planting in should have a drainage hole or put crushed rock on the bottom before your planting medium.

Watering:
Succulents don’t like to have wet feet.  Always water thoroughly when the time does come to water but let them dry considerably in between waterings.

Fertilizer:
Most succulents need very little fertilizer. Watering with a well balanced fertilizer once a month will be all they need.

Flowering:
Sedum all have different bloom times and colors ranging from pink, red and yellow. Sempervivums will bloom after the second or third year. A flower stalk will shoot up from the center of the main rosette with a cluster of flowers. After the flower dies, gently twist off the stalk. The main rosette has put on new offsets that will fill in.
