Underwatered or overwatered Echeveria pulidonis potted in Gritty Mix?
I switched my #Echeveria to Bonsai Jack Succulent Gritty Mix from regular bagged cactus soil a few weeks ago and repotted her in a shallower but wider terricotta pot.. and I am still trying to get the hang of this Gritty Mix Watering! 😣
Background info: Two leaves wilted and dropped from the repot stress but she's now adjusted and growing bigger! 🙂
BUT... I can't tell if she needs more or less frequent watering when the leaves go flat & slightly more puckered at the tips.
The flat leaves feel softer but not mushy and they aren't turning yellow.
I hear some people with Gritty Mix water their succulents every 2-3 days!
🌱 📸 The main pic is form me watering her 4 days ago & I added her progress pics.
💦 Currently She's being bottom watered every 6-7 days on average to get a good soak of the Gritty Mix.
I water when the soil *seems* dry (so hard to tell with this mix) and terricotta pot is 100% dry — I find that is a better indicator! 😅
☀ She gets lots of sun on her south facing windowsill. Probably 5 or 6 hours it's direct (but filtered from the window) from 12pm-5pm or so...
At night and in the morning I leave the window open for her to get fresh air and bright light until around noon then I close the window to make sure she doesn't get sunburned or heat stressed so she's in about 74-80 degree max temps all day and it about 55-60 degree humidity in the house.
Since I'm still getting the hang of this Bonsai Jack Succulent Soil, I'm hoping someone else who uses it can offer some advice! 🙏🏽 ♥
I'd love to be able to tell by leaf appearance when she's ready for a drink! 😁 💦
