This will help with leaves turning yellow, leaves withering and shrivelling and leaves dying off.

UNDERWATERING

Luckily it is a little bit harder to underwater a succulent but it does happen occasionally.

When the soil is completely dry you need to give it a good soak and let it drain.

If you have any shrivelled leaves they should start to look better after two watering’s.

From then on, remember to water your succulent more frequently.

Please note that during a heatwave, succulents do need a bit more water – don’t

OVERWATERING

Don’t kill your succulents with kindness.

The first thing to remember is to make sure the soil dries out before you water it again.

You can test this by sticking your finger about an inch into the soil.

Furthermore, you need to use soil that drains well to prevent the succulent to sit in water for too long.

It also helps if the succulents (inner) pot has drainage holes so excess water can drip out.
