    Maintenance Notes: 
    • For optimal performance, keep your Succulent at 60-85°F (15-29°C). 
    • Succulents love sunlight, and will perform best in a bright, sunny location that receives 4-6 hours of sunlight per day.  A windowsill or position with sunny southern exposure is ideal. 
    • If your succulent is getting leggy or leaning to one side, it is stretching for sunlight. Move it to a brighter location and rotate your plant regularly to ensure even growth.
    • Succulents are drought-tolerant, and prefer to dry out in between waterings. 
    • Feed your Succulent once per month at half strength when it is actively growing. Reduce frequency of fertilization in the winter months. 
    • Protect furniture when watering & fertilizing.
    • Succulents grow best in a Cactus & Succulent Soil Mix or in all-purpose potting mix with added sand and perlite to ensure sharp drainage.
