Succulents, unlike other houseplants, do not need a highly organic medium to survive. Meaning they do not need to be planted in a soil that are rich in nutrients. … Even tropical cactus, which are epiphytes, require some sort of soil in their medium to thrive.
In respect to this, how long does succulent soil last?
Unused potting soil lasts roughly six months before it degrades in quality, while used potting soil should be replaced every year or two.
In this way, should you repot succulents when you buy them?
Make sure you repot your succulent after you purchase it with soil and potting mix that is nourishing for your succulent. You don’t want to wait too long before you repot it, I would safely say no more than 2 weeks.
