What other plant parents say
Had mine for 2 years before I got really into plant didn’t get much light and didn’t water it much and it grew like crazy to get to the light and it’s stayed alive and healthy
I forget to water my plants often so i enjoy any cacti or succulent because i can forget to water it for a month and it’ll be fine. this one is stabby when i potted it though
I kill all succulents except this one. Homeboy has survived.
How to care for Golden Torch
Golden Torch needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Golden Torch may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Golden Torch in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Golden Torch after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
