Care Tips

Light: Light is an important limiting factor for its flowering. During cultivation, the plant should receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. It prefers full sunlight, which helps it to differentiate its flower buds, especially in winter and spring, and should not be placed in a shaded place. Otherwise the plant will not grow to bloom.

Water: In summer and autumn, the water supply should be sufficient, because this is the most vigorous stage of growth. To ensure that the plant blooms on time, water control should be carried out in the winter, at intervals of 2-3 weeks, and not too much water each time. Do not supply as much water at this stage as you would in summer and autumn, otherwise its flower bud differentiation will not proceed smoothly. They need bright sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot.

Soil: Sandy loam soil is preferred as the cultivation substrate. It has a strong drought tolerance, so you don't need to water it on time. it's okay to water it after the potting soil is completely dry. 

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

Temperature: Between 32- 45 °F ( 0-7 °C) are ideal. Winter off the main long suitable temperature 59- 77°F (15-25 ℃), a short period of time can withstand 32°F (0 ℃) low temperature.

Humidity: Thrives at average household humidity and temperature; however, avoid planting it in excessively humid areas of the house, such as the bathroom.

    Care Instructions

    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.
