How to Grow & Care:
Light: Sunny Window Ledge to top Shelf of the GreenHouse.
Water: As succulents, they don’t need frequent watering, since they store it in their leaves. Overwatering can hurt the plants far worse than not watering as too much moisture or allowing them to sit in wet soil will cause root rot. If they are left to sit in wet soil, their roots will rot. Give them a good drenching and then allow the soil to dry out, before watering again. They go dormant when the temperature gets hot in summer and need even less water. Be careful never to let water sit in the rosette as it can cause rot or fungal diseases that will kill the plant.
Soil: A well-drained succulent mix, with an ideal pH around 6.0 (slightly acidic). Additionally, remove dead leaves from the bottom of the plant as it grows. These dead leaves provide a haven for pests.
