How to maintain your succulents?

How to maintain our succulents, also called succulents?

In this article, we are going to talk about succulents!

These beautiful little plants that harmonize and fit together wonderfully in the Mimipots .

First, they love the sun , ☀️ so expose them as much as possible.

A south-facing window is best to satisfy your succulents' need for light exposure.

Also, remember to turn the pot from time to time so that your plant is fully affected by the sun's rays. This allows it to have a more natural growth.

Regarding watering , personally I water my plants with a pipette or a "pouch pouch". See photo below. During sunny periods, especially summer, succulents should be watered about every two weeks. It is important to water them enough, because this is the time when they gorge themselves with water and make their reserves.

Super important, the soil must be completely dry before the next watering, otherwise your plant may rot.

How to water well?

Looking at the leaves is a good indicator to see if they need water. If the leaves turn yellow and limp, it's a sign that there's probably too much water. On the contrary, brown leaves can indicate that they lack water. Here again, it would be preferable to inquire according to the plant.

Also, don't worry if you see leaves falling from the base of your succulents, it's a natural process. Simply remove the leaves with your fingers or pliers.

Preferably, there must be a hole under your pot to drain the water, otherwise you have to space out the watering even more or water in less quantity. Otherwise we can keep the pot in which our plant was purchased and only place it in a “cache-pot”.

Mimipots can be used as a cache-pot or simply as a pot.

For soil, I use a mixture specially designed for cacti and succulents from the “Fafard” brand at Botanix or that of “Miracle-gros” from Rona.

Small interesting fact, we can easily reproduce these beautiful plants with patience.

I simply want to clarify that I am not a specialist, I am sharing some of my knowledge with you, for more information please refer to real specialists! On the other hand, it always gives me great pleasure to answer your questions and even to do research to find out more!
