Plant Myth Monday #1

March 20, 2018

MIST YOUR SUCCULENTS
There is no mist or humidity in the desert! It’s not necessary, or beneficial, to mist your succulent plants at home. Remember that to help a plant thrive indoors – you want to try your best to mimic its natural habitat outdoors. Succulents, including cacti, have spent so much of their time evolving to keep water inside of themselves that they have zero defenses against the fungi that attack when the plant itself is covered with water. This is also one of the reasons why they die so easily from overwatering – water rushes in and bursts the plant cells, and the plant has no chemical defense against the fungi that plunder all of the remaining cells. 
The moral of the story: never mist your succulent plants! Instead, water directly into the surrounding potting soil, and only when the soil is completely dry. It is always better to underwater, than overwater, a succulent plant~Plant Hunter
