This is what Greg says about its soil. Succulent soil seems to fit the bill
If you want to water every full days, I suggest putting a drip tray underneath so it could sit in a little bit of the water? But this plant is very large for that small pot so it’s probably using up all the water you give it very quickly. Especially being by that window. I think it’s OK to water once a week unless you put in a larger pot.
It's a 5 in diameter what would you suggest in size and would succulent soil suffice?
i’m a new plant mom so don’t fully trust me, but you don’t want your soil to be fully moist without a drainage system! just off personal experience, maybe it is good to have it damp! sorry about this, trying my best 🤷‍♀️🌿
Yeah .. it's in its original pot as purchased. I never had anything other then a money tree and succulents before.
