For our last day of the 12 Days series, I want to talk about how to thrive your succulent garden in 2021.
Today I will talk about how to find a good place for your succulent garden.
A good location for planting means the place can provide enough light, easy to manage, and provide any condition that is needed by the plant. Before going further, you need to decide what kind of succulent plants to plant in your garden today.
On the first day, I talk about how to choose succulents that can live well in your living area. Now, you need to decide which succulent plants are your favorite, and you want to plant them in your garden.
When you search Pinterest, it shows a few kinds of succulent plants. Now choose 4-5 kinds of succulents plants for your garden. Search deeply and find the guide to care for succulents.
After the research, write the following on a piece of paper as below:
Plants need light as food, which can trigger a variety of metabolic reactions and make sugars (food) for plants. This process is known as photosynthesis.
“food” makes plants grow. Therefore, the more light a plant is exposed to, the more energy it produces, and the faster its growth.
How fast your plant grows depends on the quality and the quantity of the light.
For outdoor succulent, we need to be concerned about the quantity of light. The quantity of light is based on the brightness of the light reaching the leaves.
What is Light Bright
When I started gardening, I heard a lot about “bright light” and “low light”. I was confused when I came over to define the light.
What’s a bright light?
What is “low light”?
Is bright light considered full sun?
How’s the shade?
When I first choose a place for my garden, these questions puzzled me.
Now, let me share with you a simple way to recognize the sun.
Bright light means full sun. There is no barrier between the plant and the sunlight.
Medium light is diffused light between the plant and the sunlight.
Low light means no direct sunlight will reach your plant.
How Much Light Does Your Succulent Need?
Now, you must know how much light your succulents need every day.
If the succulent need FULL SUN, it means it needs 6 hours of bright light every day.
If this location provides only 4 hours of sunshine, it is considered as partial sunlight. Plants for the partial sun will grow well where they receive a break from the sun each day.
How to Measure Hour of Sunlight
This day, you need to wake up early in the morning and observe the sunlight surrounding your garden.
Record the hourly exposure to the sunlight in the garden. Make a note of whether it’s in full sun, partial sun, partial shade, or full shade. Observation starts from early in the morning until sunrise.
Don’t forget about the water source
I almost forgot the source of water when I was planing my garden.
If the location is too far away from the water source, you may need to run up and down to find water when watering. You’ll feel tired, and you may give up soon.
Choose a place that close to the water source, which can make your gardening easier.
There ya go!
