If only inanimate objects could talk! How easy it would be to know how to care for plants if they could simply communicate with us. However, especially with a plant like a succulent, they actually do by their shape, posture, color & texture. Here’s how to decipher what they are telling you it needs:
About The Succulent
Succulents are very trendy right now. Whether you have them indoors or are utilizing their natural beauty in your outdoor space, succulents are great plants for Arizona because they require little maintenance. Succulents are also very good at letting you know what they need, just by their appearance.
What To Look For
- If your succulent is appearing to be a little shriveled, it means you are under watering.
- If the leaves on your succulent’s leaves are turning slightly yellow, it is telling you it is being overwatered. Overwatered succulents can also develop black and brown spots among their leaves, and can even rot when they are over watered.
- If your succulent seems a little more dull that it usually looks, it is telling you it is spending too much time in the sunlight.
- Inversely, if your succulent is leaning towards the sunlight, it is asking you for more. Succulents that are not provided enough sunlight tend to lean into the sun, moving towards what they need.
