Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

These little guys were tiny, delicate, fragile even. I broke a few replanting them, but that’s on me. I wasn’t being very patient. I do love them and cannot wait to watch them grow.
Well packed, fast shipping and healthy!
