This is a common question that most gardeners often ask themselves. There are many species of succulents and they can vary in size from small plants to large trees. All the same, they have a water supply and it varies from one species to another.
You should have your succulents checked periodically to make sure that the amount you are watering them is appropriate. This is a good thing to do because they will be able to adjust to what is going on in their environment. The problem with some species is that they will grow rapidly and this can make the water supply very low and they will need more water. On the other hand, some species have a slow growth rate and the slow growth rate means that there are less water needed. Some species may be tolerant to drought and others may not. You should talk with your local garden center or other knowledgeable individuals if you are not sure of the answer to this question. You do not want to water a plant that will not do well in your area.
You can consult the information that you find in the books that are found in your local library or you can visit a garden center and ask for advice. A garden center can offer you a variety of ideas and some will even tell you how to water your succulents properly. These gardens centers should be able to point you in the right direction and give you information that will help you succeed with your garden.
When you are watering your succulents, try to use a spray bottle. The reason for this is that some of these plants do not like water to come into direct contact with them. They may try to push it back out, but this could result in causing the roots of the plant to be damaged. There are some species that love a nice mist of water but do not like it to be near them. This means that you might have to mist the whole garden so that the water can reach all areas. Most of these plants will not be bothered by the mist but if the plant does need to be watered, it may take longer to do so. If you are not sure, use a spray bottle instead of water to help avoid this problem.
It is a good idea to use a timer to ensure that the water level in your garden is just right. If you wait until the plant needs water, it can run down into the lower levels and cause them to drown. This is something that can happen if you are not using a timer. This is why it is important to use a timer. The good thing about a timer is that it allows you to make sure that you have enough water for your plants.
Finally, you should make sure that you water the soil on a regular basis. You do not want the soil to dry out and this will cause the plant to wilt and die. You should keep an eye out for this and make sure that you water at least every three days. When you do this, you will have a beautiful and healthy plant that will thrive in your yard.
