Watering Potted Succulents
I have a beautiful, fairly large pot of a variety of succulents. Last year I brought them in and watered them infrequently. They really did not do that well and I had to discard some and use clippings of some to fill in.
This year I will be gone for six months and we thought we would try to leave them in our walk-out basement that gets plenty of light.
Without watering, will they live? I could have a neighbor water but it was confusing for me last year to really know when to water them.
Honestly, most succulents can withstand extensive periods of drought. If your neighbor could water once a month or every 6 weeks, they should be fine. Just make sure they are well watered. I always tell folks to water till the plant 'pees'. It's worked for me for 40 years.
