- Application of Cactus & Succulent Plant FoodAchieve remarkable results with our Cactus & Succulent Plant Food, a granular + Powdery slow release fertilizer specially formulated for cacti and succulents. Follow these simple steps to provide your plants with the nourishment they need for optimal growth and vitality:
- Prepare the Soil: Start by ensuring that your plants are potted in a well-draining succulent or cactus potting soil mix. This type of soil promotes proper airflow and prevents waterlogging, which is crucial for the health of your plants. You can use our specialized Succulent and Cactus Mixes (Lava Rock Based or Silica Sand Based)
- Determine the Amount: The amount of plant food you need will depend on the size of your pots or containers. As a general rule, use approximately 1 tablespoon of granules per 6-inch pot.
- Spread the Fertilizer: Sprinkle the granules / powder evenly onto the existing potting soil mix, concentrating the application near the center of the plant. Be careful not to let the granules touch the stems or leaves, as direct contact may cause damage.
- Mix Thoroughly: Gently mix the cactus & succulent fertilizer into the top layer of soil, ensuring that they are well-distributed. This step allows the fertilizer to reach the root zone of your cacti and succulents, where it will slowly release the essential nutrients they require.
- Water: After applying the fertilizer, water your plants as you normally would. This step helps activate the release of nutrients and ensures proper absorption by the roots. Allow any excess water to drain away completely.
- Feeding Frequency: Depending on the specific fertilizer formulation, you may need to reapply the plant food every two to four months. However, always refer to the instructions on the packaging for precise feeding guidelines and adjust the frequency accordingly.
- Observation and Adjustment: Monitor the health and growth of your cacti and succulents closely. If you notice any signs of over-fertilization, such as leaf burn or wilting, reduce the frequency of application or dilute the fertilizer further. It’s important to find the right balance to support your plants’ needs.
- Feeding Frequency: For optimal results, we recommend feeding your cacti and succulents with our plant food every two to four weeks during the growing season. Adjust the feeding frequency based on the specific needs of your plants and their growth rate.
- Avoid Overfeeding: While our plant food is formulated to provide the ideal nourishment for cacti and succulents, it’s important to avoid overfeeding. These plants are adapted to survive in nutrient-poor environments, so too much fertilizer can be harmful. Follow the recommended dilution and feeding guidelines to ensure your plants receive the perfect amount of nutrients.
