WATERING:Succulents and cacti live in arid environments and need very little water, especially when grown in a garden . You only need to water them once a month, that’s right, one time per month. For reference, an ice cube is approximately 2 tablespoons of water, your garden only needs a few tablespoons of water every month. Think of how the Arizona desert gets watered and treat this the same! It is much better to underwater than overwater these plants, as overwatering can lead to root rot, which will kill the plants. If the plants are not getting enough water, they may start to shrivel or droop a bit, but they recover quickly once you water them.
LIGHT: Succulents like plenty of indirect light. They do well placed near a window that gets indirect light for most of the day. Too much direct sunlight (West facing) will burn the plants as the garden will get too warm.
MAINTENANCE: Succulents and cacti require little maintenance. They are “benign neglect” plants , meaning they are happiest when left alone. We know it’s difficult, but do your best to not over love your garden!
