Plant Care Instructions By Jeff Moore

This set of plant care instructions for landscape cactus and succulents in southern California. These include Aloes, Agaves, Crassula, Sedum, Euporbia and much more. These cactus and succulents are usually easy to grow and relatively care free. We prefer to plant them in the ground in very well drained soil. In most instances we don’t fertilize these plants when they are growing in the ground. Most of these can also be grown in containers, the care is basically the same (although you may want to fertilize potted plants).

Is Indoor Plant?

No

These month by month plant care tasks are for plants in the following zones :

    3. Water

    We don’t usually water in the winter except if there’s a combination of no rain and Santa Ana winds. We don’t usually have to use our hose to water from Thanksgiving to Valentines Day.
    4. Pest/Disease Inspection

    Scale is public enemy #1, if infested you may need to treat with systemics. Other possible pests are mealy bugs, aphids (Ants imply that there are) or spider mites, Aloes also get Aloe mites. You can treat for these insects with whatever you normally use to control insects. Plants grown inside seem to be more susceptible to infestation, plants outside usually do better. Treat as needed.

    3. Fertilize

    We don’t fertilize plants grown in the ground, but for plants growing in containers you can fertilize sparingly and diluted. You can use any typical fertilizer at half strength a couple of times per year when the weather is warm, once in April or May and then again in August or September. Don’t feed during the winter when they are dormant.
    4. Water

    Every 7 – 10 days during the warm weather months when the plants are actively growing. Give a good drenching each watering, but be sure to let the plants dry out in between waterings. Good drainage is very important. If you’re growing this plant in a container there has been a lot of discussion about using 1 Tablespoon of white vinegar to 5 gallons of water to increase acidity, which helps roots better absorb nutrients.
