Long-term succulent care
Light: Direct sunlight / Bright indirect light
Newly planted succulents may be more sensitive to the surroundings, so it would be better to slowly introduce them to more sun exposure over a few days.
Watering: “Soak and dry” method
Completely soak the roots with water and let it dry out for a few days before watering again. Try not to let the water touch the succulent’s leaves or flowers as this may cause them to rot.
Fertilizing: Sprinkle a pinch of fertilizer onto the soil around the plants (there is no need to water it in). Reapply once every 3 months.
