Although succulents are low-maintenance plants, they still need to be cared for. Thus, we have prepared a guide for you on how to take care of succulents.

We’ve seen a rise in the popularity of succulents in recent years. They are small and portable, meaning they can fit even in the smallest of accommodations. They are low-maintenance plants, meaning that even the busiest of people can take care of them. Therefore, it’s no surprise that many plant lovers are purchasing succulents by the dozen.

By nature, succulents are quite easy to care for. Despite this, even the most careful of gardeners may experience problems with their treasured plants.

Today, we’ve compiled a list of common problems you may encounter with your succulent plants and how to solve them.

Overwatering

When it comes to watering your succulents, less is always more. The plants will rot if you water them too long. Succulents, in particular, do not need to much water. Consider watering your succulents only when their soil has been arid for several days.

Bad Soil

Bad soil is the number one killer of succulents. Moist soil that people plant their succulents in is too dense. This promotes the retention of too much water, leading to the overwatering problem we mentioned earlier. For succulents, the best soil would be full of quarter-inch particles and would allow for quick drainage.

Poor Drainage

Succulents grow well when their roots can dry out quickly. Your plants may sit in water for too long and rot or die if left in containers without a drainage hole.
