Genral succulent watering guidelines
Hello, about a month or so ago my girlfriend and I went to a local nursery and bought a gorgeous succulent. Unfortunately I can't remember exactly what kind it is. It almost looks like a little tree and has green leaves with dark purple tips. Anyway, I talked with an eomployee at the nursery and she showed me the soil they use for their cacti and it looked like really good stuff, drains well etc.
What I'm worried about is my girlfriend has told me that she thinks the plant isn't doing well (we are doing the distance thing right now). I think it may be from a lack of watering as this started initially when she hadn't watered it for a couple of weeks. I would hate for her to lose this great looking plant but am cautious not to over watering.
So with that in mind, how often should a succulent be watered when it is in soil that drains very well? Also, should it be saturated when watered like a normal house plant? It is currently sitting her room which is about 70 degrees and in a window with good light.
I'll try and find out exactly what its name is this evening and possibly get a picture or two up. Thanks.
