INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUCCULENTS

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)
