Tips for Succulents in Florida
Succulents are not hard to grow if you learn a few things about them. They are from areas of the world with sunny days, dry soil and infrequent rain so they absorb water when it is provided and store it in stems or thick leaves. In Florida we can put them in the yard, on porches or lanais, or window sills and they will get sufficient light. Our rain will not harm them if they are in soil that drains quickly, but most potting soil is dense and holds too much water. Cactus or palm soil with added perlite or mulch drains better. Partial sand is ok for the cactus variety but has few nutrients. All containers need good drainage. Start by pouring water on them every 7-10 days and then let the plants tell you if they want more or less.
