In this way, how often should you water succulents?

How often to water and fertilize: While growing, cacti and succulents should be watered at least once a week. Some people water more often than this. During each watering, give the soil a good soaking, so that water runs out of the 'drainage holes' of the pots.

Subsequently, question is, how do you care for succulents indoors? Gently loosen other soil, and sift new soil around the roots, using your fingers or blunt end of a pencil to tamp it lightly as you go. Cover the surface with sand or gravel or grit, and allow the plants to dry a few days before watering. Caring for succulents indoors means not coddling them as you would, say.

Similarly one may ask, how do you care for sempervivum?

Soil and Water Sempervivum must have very well-draining soil in order to thrive, whether that comes in the form of gritty soil, sand or rocks. The plant will grow in almost no soil in rocky crevices or walls. Tough in most respects, sempervivum will perish quickly if planted in poorly draining soil.

How long can succulents go without water?

Usually, small homegrown succulents can be watered once or twice a week (every 3 days). They can withstand dry condition upto 2 weeks without any apparent sign of stress. Between 2–4 weeks without watering, the plant might begin to shed unnecessary overgrowth like excess branches leaves, or thorns.
