Watering Tips

The best way to know if a plant needs water is to check if the soil is dry. Gently stick your finger in the top part of the soil and check the humidity. If it’s still wet, it means it probably has enough water for now. If there’s some decorative moss over your soil, make sure to feel below it. Do note that generally plants in smaller pots will need to be watered more often simply because there’s not as much potting mix to keep the moisture in.

Growing Succulents Tips

Succulents are so much fun! Plus they are pretty easy to take care of once you’ve learned just a few basic tips. Your succulents will want quite a bit of light, but not too harsh. The best place is a foot or two away from a window that receives bright light, preferably in the morning when it’s not as hot. Being too close to a window that gets hot, direct light can actually cause the plant to sunburn. 


Soil. You want soil that doesn’t stay soaking wet for a long time. Succulents do not like to sit in soaking wet soil as they absorb water from the air rather than from direct contact with water. They love to have a good soak and then dry out for a little while. Generally with indoor succulents water about once a week.
