I just bought some of these :D

I really don't know much about their care but i'm assuming that I should water once every 3 weeks over the winter. And leave them at my windowsill next to my capensis and ping? :/


PS. Lovely set up. :D

Hey there Chaddy! Thanks for the comment! I don't water these guys too often. I have them growing in a concrete planter that I made so its pretty porous and when I water, I just drench it and allow it to dry out. During winter, once every three weeks sounds fine, I *think* that is right about what I do. I keep them in the greenhouse, and it is still pretty warm. How much light do you get at the windowsill? I have mine in the greenhouse and they get sun pretty much all day.

My toes get about 4 hrs of light each day, it's actually flowering at this moment. The Home Depot where I purchased it from basically drenched it for me so i'm just going to let the soil dry out. I'm assuming that since these are succulents they are more adapted to thrive through drought. So I think 3 weeks sounds good. ^_^
