How to fertilize succulents
Even if succulents can live for a while without any added fertilizer, they'll sure benefit from getting some new nutrients from time to time. Fertilizer can help them to grow better, keep them healthier and increase the vibrancy of their colors.
If the soil is wet - snooze this action, we will remind you again in 2 days.
Choose the best fertilizer
You can use any fertilizer suited for Succulents or any balanced fertilizer
Some examples when it comes to NPK*: 10-10-10, or 20-20-20.
If you're using a fertilizer not specific for succulents, dilute it a bit more than recommended in the beginning.
* NPK: Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K)
This is how to fertilize succulents
Mix the right amount of fertilizer with water according to the instructions on the package (or dilute it a bit more if it's not a fertilizer suited for succulents).
Pour the solution over the soil
Important: make sure not to get any solution on the stems and leaves
Continue adding the solution to the pot until it starts to run out of the drainage holes in the bottom
After about 30 minutes, check that the pot isn’t sitting in water - and if needed pour off excess water
