Soil/Pot: If you're looking to care for an Echeveria Green Malgan, it's important to note that this plant has shallow roots and enjoys well-drained soil. It's best to use organic nutrient soil for young succulent babies or leaf propagation, while those with established roots can thrive in multi-grain potting soil. Just make sure to repot as needed to maintain optimal porosity and upgrade the potting mix. Remember to use a succulent pot with drainage holes to ensure proper drainage.
Watering: To keep your succulent plants healthy, it's crucial to hydrate(bottom-watering) dry potting soil in arid regions to maintain their lush foliage. In areas with high humidity, you can extend the watering schedule. Additionally, it's crucial to regularly remove any excess water from the bottom of the basin to prevent root rot and fungal infections.
Top Dressing: Enhance the health of your baby succulents by adding decorative rocks to their soil. This not only helps to retain moisture but also holds organic particles when slow-release fertilizer is added. Additionally, the subtle tones of the rocks contribute to your arrangement's aesthetic appeal and professional look.
Humidity: To promote the growth of succulent plants, it is recommended to maintain air humidity between 40% to 60%. However, excess moisture can attract insect pests and fungal diseases, so it's essential to be mindful of the environmental conditions. For instance, Echeveria Green Malgan and other Echeveria succulents thrive in a warm and dry climate, and it's best to protect them from excessive rainfall during the rainy season.
Pest Control: During winter, indoor spaces with insufficient sunlight can negatively impact succulents by making them more susceptible to pests. In spring, warmer temperatures can lead to the hatching of pest eggs. To combat this, it is recommended to embed particulate pesticides into the succulent soil when temperatures rise significantly. Isolate plants affected by bugs from healthy ones to prevent the spread of pests. When repotting, disinfect the new soil with high temperatures to kill any eggs or insect pests efficiently.
