How to maintain your plants

* What should you do when you received the plant 

Your new succulent may look dry when it arrives. Don't worry, the stems and leaves of succulents will store water, even if they are out of the soil without water support, they can withstand long periods of dryness.

1. How long will they take to adapt?

It will take 2-3 week for the freshly received succulents to get used to new environments. Don't expose it to the sun immediately. Succulents can be grown indoor or outdoor but they do need plenty of light, depending on the species. For most succulents will be fine left under full sun 2-3 hours every day, but take a note of Echeveria  and other species that prefer shade in this period of time (especially hot weather) keep the soil moist.

2. Repot 

Plant new succulents in a pest free permeable potting mix with good air infiltration , mix the potting mix with zeolite or perlite to improve drainage, ideally 1/3 of perlite and 2/3 of potting mix will be fine.  Higher water frequency in the first 3 weeks to keep it nice and moist, it would help developing new roots and prevents dehydration. 

3. Check for broken roots, disease and bugs

When you purchase and plants online do check their roots and leaf for disease and bugs. if you found any in the roots break the parts off flush the roots and dry them out and repot it after the roots dry out, break the unhealthy leaves can make the plant grow healthier as there are more nutrients for them.

4. If you bought cuttings from us

For cuttings,  check if the wounded parts are heal. Before potting break some unwanted leaves from below upwards, by doing this it can reduce nutrients consumption of the plant. When there are no roots or the roots isn't very strong yet, keep the cutting hydrated, and away from the sun( avoid dehydration).

 * Change of color

1. External Factors

Succulents may look different and change its color according to the. sun access and frequency of watering, sometimes variation may occur if you are lucky. When the plant has shallow roots, let the roots develop until it is strong enough to place on a sunny spot for that extra hue.

2. Different succulents capability to sun lights 

Such as Sedum, Cactus and Agave usually look good under full sun. Echeveria, Graploveria, Aloe and Euphorbia usually prefers partly shade. And some succulents are just not very capable of sun light, such as Haworth, Pachyphytum.

 3. Season heat/cool

Different species have different capability when it comes to heat/cool manage. In Spring and summer succulents that cant cope with high heat need to be place in a shady spot with good air flow, water frequently to cool off. While others not able to handle colds of autumn and winter also need to take action, place them under cover and water less to avoid potential harm from cold and humid weathers.
