The Perfect Gifts: Succulents, green and flowering plants make excellent gifts for Administrative Professionals Week, beginning April 23rd.
Caring for succulents requires a few simple steps.
- Light: Most varieties of succulents need half a day to a full day of sunlight. In extremely hot areas some afternoon shade is recommended.
- Soil: Succulents need a well-draining soil, such as cactus soil, sand, gravel or volcanic rock,
- Water: When you first bring the succulent home, water thoroughly. Permit the soil to dry slightly between waterings but make sure the container drains well, as succulents don’t like to have wet feet.
- Fertilizer: Most succulents need very little fertilizer. Watering with a well-balanced fertilizer every 30 days will be sufficient.
Air plants are uncommon, rare and beautiful plants to have in your home and office.
- Light: Keep in bright filtered light, such as on a windowsill with a sheer curtain.
- Water: If the air in your environment is dry, the plant should be submerged in water for 2-3 hours every two weeks. If the air is humid, air plants can survive with occasional soaking mistings.
- Fertilizer: To feed your air plant, add a bit of orchid or bromeliad fertilizer when misting.
