Succulent Watering Tips
When it comes to watering your succulents, it is suggested that the leaves should be gently sprayed – keep a water bottle on standby.
It is also important that you don’t go overboard. Succulents do not need much water at all. In the later stages of growth, only water the surface of the terrain when it becomes dry.
