Summer Care for your Succulents and Cactus

Summer Care for your Succulents and Cactus

Taking care of succulents and cacti during the summer is crucial to keep them healthy. Here's a simple guide:

  1. Sunlight: Place your succulents and cacti where they get morning sunlight but avoid direct afternoon sun, which can scorch them. A bright, filtered light or partial shade is ideal.

  2. Shade Cloth: If you live in a hot climate, consider using shade cloth to protect your plants from intense sun. This helps maintain the right temperature.

  3. Watering: In the summer, succulents and cacti need more frequent watering due to the heat. Water them when the top inch of soil is dry. Be cautious not to overwater, as they dislike sitting in soggy soil.

  4. Fertilization: Use a diluted, balanced liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks during the growing season. Avoid fertilizing in late summer as they begin to enter a dormant period.

Remember, succulents and cacti thrive on neglect, so keep a watchful eye on them but avoid excessive care.
