Day 9: What Is The Best Time For Growing Your Succulent
Day 10: 3 Ways to Make Your Succulent Garden Easier to Manage
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 what is the best time to transplant your succulent.
When planting your succulents, knowing when the optimal time to transplant is important.
This means the root of the succulent will grow healthy when transplanting them at the right time.
When the root is healthy, the succulents are not easy to kill.
That’s exactly what you want! Here is how to figure out when is the best time to transplant succulents.
When You Bring New Succulents Home
This is an ideal time to transplant the new plant in your garden. Many stores planted their succulent in the soil that’s suited for flowers and vegetables.
So don’t let your succulent stay in the soggy soil for more than 3 days.
You can gently and carefully remove plants to minimize the damage to roots. Check the condition of the root and stick your succulent root into the water to clean the old soil away.
Let it dry for a few days before transplant it. Wait a week or two before watering the plant.
When You Need To Divide Your Succulents
Sedum is a kind of ground-cover -the type of plant known as Stonecrop. When you find out your garden is spread with Sedum, and you want to have more of it, this is the time to divide your Sedum.
You can use a trimmer to cut off the stem and transplant it to other places.
The perfect time for dividing your succulent is in gentle weather. Most of the gardeners prefer early spring or late winter.
Try to transplant your succulent in the evening. It can help to establish healthy root systems more quickly when plants are in warmer temps.
When You Find Out Your Plant Have Root Problems
When you find that your succulent plants grow very tall, leaves will fall off and form black spots, and even be easily killed for no reason.
All this might be having root problems. It’s not easy to detect without removing the plant from the soil to see what’s going on.
You do not need to transplant all the succulents in your garden. Just check the root system for the suspect succulent unless it happens to all of the succulents in your garden.
If you think the soil may be infected, you might want to sterilize the new soil when transplanting your plant.
How Often To Transplant
Succulents typically need to be transplanted every 2-3 years to ensure the soil is fresh and fertile for your plant. The best time to transplant is early spring, the beginning of the growing season.
