- These guys need lots of natural, indirect light.
- It might sound wanky, but if you notice there is dust on the leaves of your plant, use LEAF SHINE to get them sparkling again. Plants breathe though their leaves, so if they are covered in dust the air can't penetrate the way it needs too.
- Once they appear happy in a spot, leave them, this is officially their new home.
- Water your plants when the top inch of soil is dry. This might be once a week in Summer and once every few weeks in Winter, it will change, so keep checking in.
- When its raining outside sit them out in it, they like a really good soaking, but just a few times a year.
- Don't forget to feed your new plant children. We recommend SEARLES Recharge. Its designed for indoor plants so there is no nasty smell, your plants will eat it up and you will see the results, you only need to apply once a year at the beginning of Summer, its cheap and readily available at Bunnings.
- These guys need at least half a day of sunlight.
- Succulents need good draining soil. When planting in the garden, make sure the area drains well and is not in a low spot. When potting incorporate sand or gravel at the bottom to create better drainage.
- Succulents don't like to have wet feet. Let the soil dry out between waters.
- Don't spray their leaves with water, pour it straight onto the soil. Indoors where there is less breeze, water sprayed onto leaves can sit there for longer than it should, causing damage.
- For Sunny Coast locals, we stock succulents in-store, so come for a perv.
