Planting Advice

If your succulent looks like it's stretching out of its pot it's a sign it's not getting enough light. Once this happens it's difficult to get your succulent back to a compact shape. You can try propagating the plant, taking a cutting one to two inches from the plant's base. Place the cutting in a shady spot and give it just a little water (make sure it's not bone-dry) and let it re-shoot new growth.

Watering needs

While it's important to water your plant during spring and early summer as it's growing, do not over water it. Let the soil dry out between watering in summer and tail-off with the return of cooler weather.
