Water and sun.

In relation to irrigation, excessive amounts can kill it. If you notice that the soil is very wet, stop watering until the soil is dry. If you see that there is water left in the dish under the pot, stop watering. It is essential to water them; you need to regulate the frequency. It’s a must-have practice for all types of succulents.
