Succulent Plant Care
Giving your succulents the right environment and TLC will ensure they thrive and grow.

Because succulents hail from environments with lots of sunlight, they tend to crave a good amount of UV rays. “At a minimum, most succulents need more than six hours of light daily,” Chad Massura, co-founder of the sustainable potting mix brand Rosy Soil, says. “Aim to place plants in a south- or west-facing window for the best results.”

The exact amount of light a succulent plant needs, however, can depend on the variety, whether you’re growing it inside or outside, and the climate where you live. “As a general rule, most succulents can handle more shade in hotter, dryer climates, and will need more sun in cooler climates,” Ryan Guillou, curator for the San Francisco Botanical Garden, says.

Massura also adds that succulents grown in low-light conditions can flatten and stretch in an effort to get more sun. If you notice your succulent leaning toward the sun, “try rotating your plant each month to help them stand up straight,” he suggests.

A porous and well-draining soil with a loose and grainy texture is ideal for succulents to ensure they aren’t sitting in water for an extended period of time. If you don’t use a well-draining soil, you may have to adjust your watering habits to keep your plants from drying out or getting root rot. “If you are growing in a heavier soil, make sure that it has had time to dry sufficiently, and if growing in a lighter soil like sand or cactus mix, you may need to water a bit more,” Guillou says.

This is where the low-maintenace part really comes in. When it comes to watering succulents, “neglect is best,” Guillou says. While the frequency of watering will depend on the species and your growing conditions, most succulents should be left to dry out completely between waterings. That means your succulent’s soil should be bone-dry and crumbly before you give it another drink. If the leaves and stems start to wrinkle and get brown, that’s a sign your plant is dehydrated and needs to be watered, says Angelica Elliott, assistant director of public horticulture at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix.

When in doubt, however, it’s better to steer on the side of under-watering. “[Succulents] will have a better chance to bounce back after being under-watered rather than over-watered,” Guillou says.

Temperature and Humidity
Because succulents are native to hot, arid climates, they generally prefer warm temperatures with lower humidity, though it can depend on the species. For a general range, Diane Glaub, plant arbor manager at the San Francisco Botanical Garden, says, “Most succulents prefer temperatures between 40 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity levels between 40 and 60 percent.” Since succulents have adapted to desert extremes, they’re pretty good at handling both hot and cold conditions within reason, Massura says, noting that humidity is the bigger concern here.

“High-humidity environments quickly lead to rots, wilts, and a slow death,” he says. However, Massura explains, succulents can combat high humidity (as high as 70 to 90 percent) as long as they get plenty of daily sunlight to keep their leaves and the soil dry.

Succulents generally don’t need fertilizer when planted in the ground, Elliott says, since they can typically obtain all the nutrients needed from the soil. If you’re growing succulents in containers, however, you may benefit from periodically fertilizing your plant when it’s actively growing. Elliott recommends using a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer, such as 10-10-10.
