Prevent Leggy Succulents

September 1, 2020

Leggy or stretched out succulents happen from lack of sunlight exposure. Prevent this by placing them next to a sunny window or outside for 1 to 2 days out of the week. Be careful to avoid extreme temperatures! This can result in a burnt plant much like a sunburn. Don't have access to a sunny spot? Check out your local hardware store for a GE full spectrum LED lightbulb. These give off normal white light without the traditional purple hue.

Soil Do’s and Don’ts

September 1, 2020

Do you suffer from plant over love? If you tend towards overwatering, adding sand or perlite to your potting mix can help keep plants well drained and prevent root rot. If your plant looks wilted and you know you've been watering, allow the soil to dry between waterings and move to a sunny location. You may want to dry out the soil and make sure your pot or planter has a drainage hole. For pots without drainage holes, we recommend at least a 1 inch layer of lava rocks or clay pebbles to prevent roots from sitting in water.
