How to cultivate and grow succulents
Although there is a large variety of succulents, cultivation and care are basically the same.
Because they are a desert plant, the succulents need the sun. Store it in a place where it is right or at least well lit.
One of the main features of succulents is that they do not require constant irrigation. During the winter months, it is recommended to water the plant every two weeks, and in the summer, irrigation per week is ideal. However, always check the soil moisture before watering as the succulents suffer much more from excess water than from deficiency.

Succulents also need fertilization. Try to fertilize the plant every three months with a NPK fertilizer.
How to plant and make juicy seedlings
Planting the succulents is very easy. The first step is to choose the container that will receive the plant, then guarantee the drainage system, as the accumulation of water can rotting the plant.
Make three to four holes in the pot and place a few small stones in the ground. Then add the fertilized soil. Make a small hole in the middle to get the seedling and plant it next.
The process of producing succulent seedlings is also simple. Simply cut a few leaves and place them on the ground without burring the tips. Just put it on the floor. Water only after seven days. At the end of this period you will notice the small roots coming out from the base of the leaves. When the roots get bigger, plant the leaf on the ground.
