Succulents are drought-tolerant and easy to grow, so what are the tips for beginners when it comes to raising succulents? We must prepare the right soil to raise succulents well. Succulents can be farmed by mixing peat and perlite at a 1:1 ratio, or by mixing leaf rot and river sand at the same ratio.
Succulents are mostly grown in the desert and don't require much water, so they can be watered as soon as they are dry and wet. In summer breeding, the number of watering times can be increased appropriately, and water can be sprayed around the plants to increase the air humidity. You don't need to water too much in winter to keep the soil moist.
Succulents are light-loving plants, and novice growers can determine the duration of light depending on the species. Succulents generally receive no less than 4 hours of light per day. In rainy weather, you can use light instead of sunlight. In summer, the light is very strong, so you need to shade the plants properly when raising Succulents.
Succulents do not have a high demand for fertilizers, so they can apply phosphate fertilizer to the plants for cultivation. Newcomers can first dilute the fertilizer with water when fertilizing Succulents, so as to solve the problem of fertilizer harm caused by Succulents from the root. Apply fertilizer on the soil every time, try not to put fertilizer on the leaves and roots of the plant.
