When we grow and care for white stonecrop, first select the silty loam and leaf soil and river sand soil. In addition to the summer shading processing, the rest of the season let it in more sun. In winter, the best temperature control is above 10℃, keep dry and not pour, and water thoroughly. During the growth period, it should be applied every 1 month to NPK - based compound fertilizer liquid. Now, let’s see how to grow and care for white stonecrop.
When we grow and care for white stonecrop, select reasonable soil first. Because it belongs to a kind of succulent and developed root system, we can choose silty loam and leaf soil and river sand soil, conditional usable gravel and sand, mixed soils of rotting leaves as the cultivation matrix.
