Care for Fuzzy Succulents
- Always plant in fast-draining succulent soil.
- Choose a container with good drainage.
- Water thoroughly, but only when the succulent soil is dry.
- Provide as much bright light as the succulent can take.
Dig the succulent out of the soil and remove excess soil stuck to the roots, cut off any brown/black roots as these are rotten already. Leave the plant on a mesh or any kind of strainer till the roots have air dried from anywhere two to three days. When the roots are dry completely, plant them back in the pot.
