With succulents coming in a myriad of colors and unique shapes, 它们为推荐十大正规网赌平台的户外空间增添了美丽.



While using succulents, (as opposed to flowering annuals) in containers are a more 低的选择在美国,它们确实需要定期施肥.



Succulents 成长n in the ground get their nutrients from the surrounding soil. Micro-organisms in the soil are constantly breaking down organic matter, which adds nutrients.  

然而, the soil in 锅 doesn’t undergo this process and whatever 植物 you 成长, need supplemental nutrients in the form of fertilizer.

So how do you go about fertilizing succulents in containers?

1. 肥料的类型: 你可以使用 液体,低氮肥料 或者选择有机食品 鱼乳液.

2. 多久施肥一次: 我喜欢使用缓释肥料,比如 Osmocote, applying every 3 months, at 1/2 the recommended strength on the package. If you prefer using a 液体肥料, you can use a product such as 名扬有机园林肥料, which should be applied monthly beginning in mid-spring to late summer.

3. 当施肥:  Apply every three months when using a slow-release fertilizer or monthly with a 液体肥料. Do this beginning in spring, once the threat of frost has finished in your area. Cacti and succulents don’t need fertilizer in winter.


I have a container filled with three different succulents by my front door and I love how it looks and how easy they are to care for. 我鼓励你在容器中使用多肉植物, which is a great way to add unique beauty to your garden with little fuss!
