    Your succulents need less water in the winter because they grow more slowly. To avoid root rot, water them sparingly and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Typically, watering once a month is enough, but always check the soil moisture first.

    Soil and Potting

    Plant your succulents in well-draining soil. If the soil stays wet for too long, consider repotting with a succulent mix. Proper drainage is crucial to prevent root rot, especially during winter.

  • Pests and Diseases

    Although pests and diseases are less common in the winter, they can still be a threat. Look for pests like aphids, mealybugs, and fungus gnats, as well as signs of diseases like root rot, powdery mildew, and black spot. Check your succulents regularly for signs of pests or disease, and take action quickly if you notice any infestations.
