During the winter months, your succulent plants to rest in. They should preferably be placed in a ventilated, light and where the temperature fluctuates between 5 and 15° C. In autumn, water sparingly, at most once per month. In the winter, no water for succulents !
in The spring, wait until the temperature begins to rise to water the plants. When the leaves of the succulent will have well drunk, then the growth begins, even if they lack of light or fertilizer. In the summer and during the high heat, and place them in a place in half shade.
Attention to pots that you are using : a container in terracotta porous promotes the evaporation of the water, while a planter in plastic or glass terrarium is air-tight. It will then be necessary to ensure that you water less often and extensively. For potting, a mixture of ready-to-use special cacti will do perfectly. Fertilizer liquid for cactuses can be used in the spring summer, but take care to always water your plants before, at the risk of causing burns !
