Avoid These Mistakes When Caring For Your Zebra Succulent Plant
Zebra succulents are generally easy to take care of, making them perfect for beginners. However, overwatering, direct sunlight, and cold temperatures can be fatal to the plant.
The plants quickly develop root rot if overwatered, which causes stunted growth, small leaves, and wrinkling. You should only water them once the soil has been dry for a few days.
You barely need to water zebra succulents at all because they can easily go for weeks without a drink and be fine. You can also use well-draining soil to further prevent root rot.
Place your plants near a window with shifting sunlight to prevent them from burning under direct sun. They don’t like the cold either, so bring any outdoor pots inside in winter.
To revive an overwatered plant, pinch off the decaying roots and let it dry out for a few days before repotting. Trim sun or frost-damaged plants and relocate them somewhere safer.
