Additional information
While succulents are native to arid regions and can thrive in poor soils, it doesn't mean they don't require water and nutrients. The higher the light level and temperature and the less humid, the more watering is needed. Potting: It is best to under pot rather than over, for slower growing or rot prone species (the more substrate in the pot, the more water will be stored). Larger pots take longer to dry out. This can lead to problems with rot. Many cacti are usually suitable for large pots as they're not as sensitive. Your substrate mix and local climate play an important role in this. A pot topper of crushed granite or pea gravel can look good, but has benefits too. It keeps topsoil from drying out faster than the rest of the pot soil, keeps the base of the plant dry and helps the even distribution of water through the soil. Many commercial potting soils are too rich with fresh organic matter for these plants. When choosing, consider if the food, water and air are able to get to the roots and is porous enough to let water drain through. Many growers use a mix of a low peat planter mix and pumice (50/50). Sand, small pebbles and vermiculite are ingredients added. Experiment with different combinations. Watering and fertilising should occur during the Most active period (approx. 1/3 of year). Spring and Summer are most often the most active periods. Moving into Winter, reduce the frequency of watering. Little water is required 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. Or when soil is bone dry, water thoroughly and allow to dry. If in doubt, don't water.
