March Subscription Plants
Kermit the Frog said, “It’s not easy being green”, but I assure you this month’s plants have no problem being green!
March wouldn’t be right without a little luck of the Irish, so when I found a new hybrid called “Irish Mist”, that for sure needed to go in the box. Next up were these JUICY Haworthia Mutica. Holy cow they are literally busting out of the pots. Some of you my need pruners to snip the pot away as there are some thick roots busting through the bottom of the pot. In lieu of cactus s this month I found, to my surprise, Euphorbia monstrose in the most darling little pots. This is a great little plant and can be a perfect addition to your weirdo plants. Finally I have some cuttings from one of my perennial favorites, variegated jade. Just pop those babies in some soil and they should readily root up as they are still in their growing season.
Here’s a little more info on your plant”s care:
Haworthia mutica is a small succulent plant that is easy to care for. To keep it healthy, make sure to place it in bright, indirect light and water it sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Haworthia mutica prefers well-draining soil and is susceptible to root rot if the soil remains too wet. During the summer growing season, fertilize the plant with a diluted succulent fertilizer every two to four weeks. Keep the plant in a warm, dry location and protect it from frost during the winter months. With proper care, your Haworthia mutica should thrive and produce offsets, which can be separated and propagated to create new plants.
Mammillaria polythele is sweet cactus that requires minimal care to thrive. Ensure it is planted in well-draining soil and placed in a location with plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. Water the plant only when the soil has completely dried out, and avoid getting water on the plant's body to prevent rotting. Fertilize the cactus once a month during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer, and keep it in a location with good air circulation to prevent fungal infections. Your plant can reach up to two feet in length and 4” in diameter and sports a beautiful crown of pink flowers when in bloom
Echeveria Irish mist hybrid as with all echeveria to keep your them healthy, place it in a bright, sunny location with indirect light, as direct sunlight can scorch the leaves. The plant prefers well-draining soil and should be watered only when the soil has completely dried out. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so make sure to let the soil dry out between waterings. During the growing season, fertilize the plant with a balanced succulent fertilizer every four to six weeks. Echeveria can be propagated by stem or leaf cuttings, making it easy to propagate and share with friends. With proper care, your echeveria will thrive and produce beautiful rosettes.
To keep your jade cutting healthy, place it in a bright, sunny location with indirect light. The plant prefers well-draining soil and should be watered only when the soil has dried out completely. Wait until you see roots before watering your cutting Overwatering can cause the leaves to drop, so make sure to let the soil dry out between waterings.
