Succulents are a delightful plant that is liked by almost everyone, especially among the first choices for gifts.


The fact that they need little care, look suitable for all ages and genders, and being an alternative even for wedding gifts are the most attractive elements of them...
However, these sweet plants, like other plants, are alive and have certain needs. If you have a succulent, don't leave it alone and say "I just water it once in a while".
Things to consider to give your succulent a good future:

Light
Due to their nature, succulents generally grow in places with high temperature and low humidity such as deserts. Plants from such families love the sun very much. But exposing a baby succulent to direct sunlight can cause it to burn. If your plant is new and small, you should gradually acclimate it to the sun. Position it in a place where there is plenty of light but not directly exposed to the sun.


Change Direction
You put your succulents in the best light of the house or office, but then what? Your plant, which is constantly in the same position, will not be able to receive an equal amount of sunlight on all sides. Turn it around so that the sides that do not see the sun receive light. For best practice, you can rotate a quarter turn per week.
If your succulents are tilted in one direction, it probably indicates that they are trying to turn themselves towards the sun. When you encounter such a situation, relocate it and move it to a place where it will receive better light.


Irrigation
Undoubtedly, this is the most curious point. The amount and frequency of irrigation is more important in this type of plants than in other plants. Without the right balance, their bottoms may rot, their leaves may deteriorate, and they may even die. Succulents that need more energy during growth periods may need more water during development periods. More irrigation can be done in summer and spring periods.
If you're not sure if it's time to water, you can do a little test. Insert your finger about 1 cm into the soil of the plant. Water if it feels dry, but if it's damp, delay watering and check again in a few days.
When watering, soak the soil until water runs out of the drainage holes in your plant's pot. If your container does not have a drainage hole, be careful with watering less. It is best to use a perforated container.
It's not a good idea to water succulents using a spray bottle. Condensation on the leaves can cause mildew on the leaves and sensitization of the roots.
Alternatively, you can choose to keep it in a bowl full of water and water it from the bottom.


Keep It Clean
While succulents are kept indoors, their leaves will become dusty over time. This can hinder their growth. When you encounter such a situation, clean the leaves with a slightly damp cloth. Clean until the dust is gone, but use a fine brush for tough spots.


Soil
It would not be right to grow your succulents with a random garden soil. They will feel healthier and happier with the special cactus soil.
These plants generally do not need fertilizer. If you want to fertilize, the right time will be the spring-summer months when they are prone to growth.
We mentioned that you should prefer pots with drainage when choosing a pot. Take care not to collect water in your flower pot under your perforated container. These plants do not like to sit in a humid area.
Yeah! You have learned the best care for your succulents. Now you can watch them grow with pleasure and show the right attention.
