How long can a succulent arrangement stays in the original pot like this? Aren’t them arranged too close together? Are they going to die very soon in this small space? Will they grow big and do I need to change pot soon?
Those are some of the frequently asked questions from you all, let’s us clear some of your doubts here😉
Usually our LES arrangement can last from 3 to 8 months in the original pot without having to do repotting (depending on pot type), they love to be planted close to each other so that they have a lower chance of getting overwatered (because water will be absorbed by other plants too). They love to be planted in a size that’s just nice and sufficient for them, they don’t like a luxury big house and that explains why can they thrive beautifully especially when arranged close together with each other.
What you have to do to maintain the beautiful succulent arrangement is provide sufficient sunlight and water according to schedule. Overwater and insufficient sun are the main reasons of succulents begin to stretch especially in their growing season. What happens when you’re not providing sufficient sun is that the plants start to stretch taller and taller to look for sunlight, and that’s when you will have to do beheading and repotting of the arrangement again before it reaches 3 months.
If you’re doing the above two things right, the next thing is to apply fertiliser & pesticides once a month. With the 3 methods above the succulent arrangement you got home shall be able to last for about 5-8 months without having to do repotting again.
*One thing to note is that SUNLIGHT is the key factor, if you’re not having sufficient sunlight for the succulents, then water and fertilise less frequently to avoid stretching*
