Watering Instructions

Watering Tools

Use a watering tool that will provide water directly to the soil. This may include a container with a spout or a pipette. Avoid using a spray bottle, since Succulents do not like getting water on their leaves, this may cause rotting. Succulents prefer to have their roots soaked in water and then completely dried out.

Watering Process

  1. Soak the soil with water thoroughly, ensuring that the water flows out of the drainage hole
  2. Allow soil to completely dry out before rewatering
  3. Only water once every few weeks)

Important Notes

  • It is very important to water succulents when dry and not when wet damp or moist.
  • Succulents should not be watered every day
  • During the cooler times of the year, they require less water.
  • Only water soil and not the leaves of the succulents as this encourages mould growth.
  • Only water succulents when the soil is completely dry. If succulents are watered too much the plants will start rotting.

Well done planting your beautiful succulent. Roots will start within the next few weeks and continue to grow. If you would like to find out more about our succulent products please visit our shop here.
