Answer #4 · Chason Arthur's Answer · I grow quite a few succulents in pots and always just wait until the soil is dry to water again. Then I soak the soil pretty good. Mine don't need watered much...maybe once every two weeks or so. The succulents I have won't survive outdoors during the winter so I bring them indoors. Whether indoors or outdoors, just check the soil for moisture with your finger and only water if the soil is dry.)

Answer #3 · Chason Arthur's Answer · Most cactus and succulents actively grow for 1/3 of the year. During this active period watering may need to be more frequent. They require very little water during the cold months. A good watering once a week in hot weather and once a month in the dormant period is a good point to start as you learn your individual plants needs. Another approach is to allow soil to become completely dry before watering thoroughly again. Hope this info helped.)

Answer #1 · Chason Arthur's Answer · How often should you water? That's hard to say. The higher the light level and temperature and the less humid the more often watering is required.)
