Natural Pest Control
Plant Daddies utilizes a chemical free pest solution in order to protect our plants future homes and pets.
We allow lady bugs to roam free in our greenhouse and on our plants.
You may receive a lady bug or two in your plants; they are non-invasive, healthy insects that will not harm your plants.
Succulents prefer bright light and full sun.
Unlike most house plants succulents do not need to be watered as frequently. Water when the soil is completely dry or when the leaves start to shrivel. Make sure to water thoroughly and dump out any excess water left in the saucer to avoid root rot.
Succulents can survive in most climates. They will do best in temperatures between 60-80°F.
Common Problems Q&A
This is likely a sign of under watering. Although Succulents do not need much water they still cannot be completely neglected. You should water you plant soon after the soil has completely dried out.
Why are my leaves turning yellow, transparent and soggy?
This is generally a sign of over watering. You should cut back on your watering schedule and only water when your soil has dried out. If you were watering once a week and notice these signs, try cutting back and watering once every 2 weeks.
Why is my plant experiencing leggy growth?
Leggy growth is likely a sign of inadequate light. When succulents aren't receiving enough light they stretch in order to get closer to sunlight. Try moving your plant by a sunny window.
