INSTRUCTIONS FOR 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.
SELECTING THE 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)
HOW TO FERTILIZE YOUR SUCCULENTS IN 5 STEPS
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
