Our Most Frequently Asked Questions Answered for You
What care do you recommend?
Light & Temp Requirements: We recommend 8-12 hours of direct light with a combination of 40F-70F temperature to bring out those beautiful colors. Provide partial shade or filtered sunlight when temps reach 75F or above during the warmer seasons. Some succulents can withstand as low as 20F, but experiment with caution as lower temperatures can cause frost damage.
Water Requirements: Only water when soil is completely dry.
Soil Requirements: Use organic, quick-draining soil with a high mixture of pumice, lava rocks, sand, or other porous rock material. Avoid soils that come with fertilizer, chemicals, and other additives. Fertilizing is not necessary (they do just fine without it) but if you choose to do so we recommend using a diluted fertilizer that is balanced at 8-8-8 (4-4-4 is ideal).
Special Instructions for Indoors: We recommend T5 grow lights with 6500K bulbs for optimal growth. To reduce moisture in soil, use extra quick-draining soil, a circulating fan, and/or pot feet to help aerate the soil so it dries quicker.
