How to maintain succulents' vibrant color?

Have you ever experience buying pretty colorful succulents happily but soon realize that they have lost their colors?

We'll always tell you sunlight is a must when you want vibrant color succulents.ย 
But this time we're gonna tell you a bit more so that you can experiment out different environment for your plants, and that's one of the fun part in planting! ๐Ÿ˜
Succulents need time to adapt to new environment (humidity, sunlight, temperature, soil etc) when they are brought to new house, the first 2 weeks are the time for them to adapt. You can see major changes in them when the sunlight amount you're providing is much different from the previous. If you see them turning pale in color means they need more sunlight, it's always advisable to give them more sun when you see this happen.

But, if there is a location without much sunlight yet you insist to have succulents there, you can always experiment the possibilities out๐Ÿ˜‰ There's no right or wrong in planting as long as you're happy with the outcome!

Here's 2 possibilities that might happen if you continue with the original location (lower sunlight amount) and continue to let the succulents adapt to new environment you're giving:

1. First is they'll adapt to your new environment and slowly gain back abit of its color, but will not be as vibrant as before because the sunlight amount is still not there. Some people are happy with this kind of outlook and so that's totally alright. You keep the succulent alive and you have a plant that you always wanted to be at the location, it's a win win situation.

2. Another possibility is they might be dying slowly, by start dropping their leaves one by one or turning yellowish and eventually dry up. If you see any of these situations happening, means you shall terminate your experiment immediately and start rescuing your succulents instead.

We'll always advise the lighting amount according to different species and arrangements, but it's also fun to observe and experiment them out ๐Ÿ˜‰
