Care Tips

Light: They prefer full sun but can tolerate semi-shade. If there is not enough light, the plant will easily have excessive growth. The distance between the upper and lower leaves will be longer, making the plant more loose, and the stems will also become very fragile and delicate.

Water: The soil needs to be kept slightly moist for a long time to avoid waterlogging. Water is basically cut off throughout the winter, and when it’s below 41°F(5 °C), it is time to start slowly cutting off water. When the temperature exceeds 95°F (35 °C) in the summer, the growth of the whole plant basically stops. It is worth stating that in the summer, water is not cut off for the whole season, but only a small amount of water is given. Otherwise the old leaves tend to dry out, and watering is only on the side of the pot about 2-4 times a month (given at night). 

Soil: It’s mainly loose and breathable loam, so the soil for potted plants can be mixed with sandy loam and coarse sand, and the right amount of fertilizer can be added to the soil as a nutrient for growth.

Potting: It is recommended to use ceramic pots. Ceramic pots have a certain degree of permeability. Clay pots lose water too quickly, and plastic pots tend to retain water for too long and permeability is poor.

Temperature: The optimal growing temperature is between 61-82°F (16-28°C). This plant needs three hours or more of direct sunlight each day so try to take it outside when the temperature increases to 50°F(10° C) or more

Humidity: Pickle Plant grows well in average household humidity levels. It doesn’t like too much humidity

    Care Instructions

    Please visit our Succulent Care info page for more details.

    To ensure the health of succulents, it is important to plant them in porous, well-draining soil. Succulents require little watering, but don't like to sit in wet soil. To create an adequate cactus mix, simply add pumice, perlite, or grit to cactus soil to provide the proper drainage.

    Make sure to leave drought periods between waterings to prevent the plant from water-logging.
