Day 10: 3 Ways To Make Your Succulent Garden Look Beautiful
Day 11: 5 Top Succulent Myths That Everyone Believes
For our last day of the 12 Days series, I want to talk about how to thrive your succulent garden in 2021.
Today I want to talk about how to make your succulent garden look beautiful.
The beautiful garden needs well care and the right management. With these 3 tips, you can easily manage your garden as you know that succulents do not need to put too much effort into maintaining them.
I trimmed my succulent three weeks ago when I figured out that the new growth can’t grow well. Look, in just three weeks, the parent plant now looks more healthy than before. Yes, now I have more than one pot of such plants. They all look healthier.
When To Trim Succulent
The best time for pruning succulent is late winter and early spring. During this season, most succulent plants are dormant.
There is less infection during low temperature because the bacteria are inactive during this time.One more thing, you need to remember, if you live in a humid area, don’t trim your succulent leaves after rain.
How to Trim Succulent
When I trim plants, I’ll prepare my grey gloves and plums. To prevent infection, I’ll stabilize the tool before using it. I soak the tool in the water with a teaspoon of bleach.
When you cut succulent, make it at a 45-degree angle. By doing so, it’ll let the water flow through without stopping at the top of the cut.
Don’t forget to remove the withered leaves from time to time, to prevent the plant from rotting.
I hope my succulent plants will grow fuller, but I can’t see any result after 3 months. At last, I found that succulents are slow-growing plants. Then my best friend Ann told me that succulents need to be fertilized.
The fertilizer will help them grow healthily, keep their colors and good shapes, and sometimes promote the growth of flowers.
When To fertilize succulent Garden
The best time to fertilize succulent plants in spring, when the temperature is kept above 60 degrees during the day, or autumn.
Outdoor succulents and indoor succulents are different. Outdoor succulent plants can be fertilized once a month because there are more sunlight and sufficient airflow, which can handle extra fertilizer dose.
How to Fertilizer Succulent Garden
You can use any brand of fertilizer, but you need to pay attention to the ingredients of the fertilizer. The ratio of high-quality fertilizer is 1: 1: 1 for nitrogen: phosphorus: potassium. Follow the instructions according to your fertilizer package.
Granular fertilizer is the best fertilizer for the garden. Just spread the fertilizer and water it in but not feed it in the dry soil.
Keep Away From Sunburn
If your succulents are expos to too much sunlight or high temperature in summer, your succulents will look ugly. To avoid sunburn, you can give them 6 hours of morning sunlight and evening sunlight.
From my previous post, I always talk about shade cover. Shade cover can be used in the afternoon or hot summer to avoid sunburn.
If you don’t like the sunburn appearing on your succulent, keep this in mind when watering your plant.
- Avoid water the plant in the morning.
- Avoid water the plant from the top of the leaves.
There You Go!
