Lack of Sunlight
Succulents stretch out when they aren’t getting enough sunlight. You’ll first notice the succulent start to turn and bend toward the light source. Then as it continues to grow it will get taller with more space between the leaves.
Here are some of the plant characteristics to look for when identifying succulents:
- Leaf – shape, size and thickness.
- Color – of leaves, flowers or stems.
- Markings or bumps on the leaves.
- Flower – shape, color, number of blooms and petals.
- Stem – color, texture, length.
- Ciliate hairs.
- Epicuticular wax.
- Spikes, spines or smooth.
Make Sure Your Succulents Get Enough Light
Succulents love light and need about six hours of sun per day, depending on the type of succulent. Newly planted succulents can scorch in direct sunlight, so you may need to gradually introduce them to full sun exposure or provide shade with a sheer curtain.
While succulents are pretty slow growers, they will eventually outgrow the pot they are in and even need some maintenance on a regular basis.
You can see considerable growth for fast-growing succulents around 4 to 6 months and tiny development in just a few weeks to a month.
Cover the stones with a layer of planting soil.
Break up the soil to keep it from clumping and becoming too dense. The soil will need to be at least an inch thick in order to hold most succulents securely and allow them to take root. Use a spoon to funnel the soil into containers with smaller openings.
Since mini-cacti are succulents and produce colorful flowers, they require about four hours of direct sunlight daily. A good indoor location is within 4 feet of a south- or east-facing window. Mini-cacti need sunlight exposure evenly, so rotate periodically to make sure the entire plant receives sunlight.
In terms of order of size, graptosedum are the smallest (as they’re graptopetalum and sedum hybrids), graptopetalum varieties are next, and graptoveria are somewhat larger small succulents (as they’re hybrids between graptopetalum and echeveria).
