Blowin' up the succulent community today
I finally discovered that my lil succ is an echeveria dionysos! I'm told that these little guys need very little water to thrive, but mine is in a tiny 2 inch pot that gets about 5 hours of direct window sun, and I just watered it on the 12th. Greg is telling me I should water it 5 days from now. Should I skip this watering? It's mid September in northern Ohio, so definitely not prime growing season anymore and it's no longer 90 degrees. Any advice would help!

It'll depend on the soil. If it's totally dry go ahead and water. If it needs more time hit snooze and Greg will remind you 3 days later. After a snooze or two it will lengthen the windows between waterings.
If the soil is still moist, I'd snooze it. These plants are pretty drought tolerant.

I've even waiting until the leaves start to wrinkle before I've watered them. (:

Most of my succulents that sit in a window sill and get 4 hours of direct sun get watered every 8 days or so. It's more like 12 days in the winter. My plants are in tiny pots with succulent soil as well.

Okay, thanks all! I noticed the leaves aren't as firm as they used to be, so I'm definitely backing off on the water! I do not want to risk the rotting on such a pretty one!
