Do succulents need sunlight?
Succulents love light and need about six hours of sun per day, depending on the type of succulent. Newly planted succulents can scorch in direct sunlight, so you may need to gradually introduce them to full sun exposure or provide shade with a sheer curtain.
Can you plant succulents in just rocks?
Succulents and cacti naturally grow in sandy soils that drain quickly, and their roots should never be left in wet soil. Also, using rocks and pebbles on your soil can improve the aesthetic appeal of your succulents. Succulent needs soil to survive, and they cannot survive on rocks and gravels alone.
How long can a succulent go without water?
Some types of succulents, such as Graptopetalum or Crassula, can go up to three months without water before they are shriveled enough to be unable to recover. However, there are also certain species of cacti that are capable of surviving six months or more without water.
How often should indoor succulents be watered?
How often should I water my succulents? Succulents should be watered only when the soil has dried out completely. There is no universal watering schedule that works for every succulent in every climate. Many indoor succulent growers find that watering 14-21 days is a good frequency to keep their succulents alive.
How do I plant succulents?
When planting succulents, set them into prepared soil (using gloves for spiny types), and sift soil around their bases, gently tamping down as you go. Cover the soil surface with coarse sand, gravel, or other inorganic mulch, and water very gently to settle soil around roots and plant bases.
