6" Crassula Sunset Jade


Succulents are popular for their low maintenance and unique appearance. Here are some general care instructions to keep your succulents healthy and thriving:

 1. Light
- Sunlight: Succulents generally require plenty of bright, indirect light. Most varieties do best with 6-8 hours of sunlight daily.
- Indoor Placement: Place them near a south or west-facing window. If natural light is insufficient, consider using a grow light or placing outdoors.

 2. Watering
- Frequency: Water succulents sparingly. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Overwatering is the most common cause of succulent death.
- Method: Water thoroughly until water drains out from the bottom of the pot. Avoid letting the plant sit in water. During the dormant winter months, reduce watering frequency.

3. Soil
- Type: Use a well-draining succulent or cactus mix. You can also create your own mix by combining potting soil with perlite or coarse sand to improve drainage.

4. Temperature and Humidity
- Temperature: Succulents prefer temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Most can tolerate cooler temperatures, but avoid frost and freezing conditions.
- Humidity: Succulents thrive in low humidity. High humidity can lead to fungal diseases and rot. 

 5. Fertilizing
- Frequency: Fertilize sparingly. During the growing season (spring and summer), use a balanced, diluted succulent fertilizer once a month.
- Type: Use a fertilizer specifically formulated for succulents and cacti, diluted to half the recommended strength.

 6. Potting and Repotting
- Pot Choice: Use a pot with drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.
- Repotting: Repot every 2-3 years or when the plant outgrows its pot. Choose a pot that is slightly larger than the current one and refresh the soil to provide nutrients.

7. Pruning and Propagation
- Pruning: Prune to remove dead or leggy growth. This helps the plant maintain its shape and encourages new growth.
- Propagation: Many succulents can be easily propagated from leaves, cuttings, or offsets. Allow cut ends to callous for a few days before planting in well-draining soil.

 Additional Tips
- Handling: Handle succulents gently to avoid breaking their delicate leaves and stems.
- Environment: Avoid placing succulents in drafty areas or near heat sources like radiators, as sudden temperature changes can stress the plant.

By following these care instructions, your succulents should thrive, providing you with their unique beauty for years to come.
