Indoor plant care doesn’t call for the same rigorous routine as working with outdoor gardens. Since you don’t need to monitor for weeds, you can focus your efforts on feeding and watering your succulents.
Watering Becsides aspect (light) and soil, water is also the most important factor in caring for succulents indoors. Succulents are very drought tolerant, making it easier to keep up with a watering schedule. Though the amount of watering depends on your growing conditions and species of plant, a good rule of thumb is to let the soil dry out completely before you water it again. You can also look for signs of the stem or leaves starting to turn brown and wrinkle.
Your succulent will do better if it’s underwatered rather than overwatered. If the leaves on your plant turn black or become soft, squishy and translucent, it may be getting too much water.
Feeding Don’t forget about fertiliser when planning your indoor succulent plant care. A liquid or granular fertiliser can be used for optimal results. Apply granular PowerFeed Controlled Release Pots & Plants for Indoor & Outdoors once every season. It combines a premium mix of nutrients, seaweed, and microbes for all plants in pots. Supplement or apply a liquid fertiliser such as PowerFeed PRO SERIES Pots & Planters or PowerFeed All Purpose including Natives every 2 to 4 weeks from spring to autumn and less often in winter.
For a ready-to-use no mixing formula, apply PowerFeed Indoor & Potted Plants 1.25 Lt trigger spray to the soil. This easy-to-use liquid fertiliser and soil conditioner helps to improve your soil and feed your plants. Apply every 2 to 4 weeks during the growing season and monthly in winter if needed.
Transplanting A healthy succulent will grow until it gets too big for its pot. This can deplete the soil of nutrients. Transplanting is easy, and splitting the plants when you do creates more succulents to spread around your home or give away as gifts.
When the succulent outgrows the pot, you can separate pieces by gently digging up the root system. Move the other pieces into pots with the same type and level of potting soil that they came from. Wait a day or two before you water to allow the roots to settle.
Watch out Succulents are generally pest and problem free when grown indoors as long as their aspect (light), soil and moisture requirements are met. Check individual plant tags for more information.
