Growing plants is not an easy task, even when we are talking about plants that do not require too much attention, such as succulents. There are a number of factors that influence a succulent to die or simply not continue to grow. It can be a consequence of something you do (or don’t do), and sometimes it depends solely on external factors.

Either way, you need to know what could be the cause of why your succulent is not growing so that you can take the necessary measures and help it get back to life as much and as fast as possible. Here are some reasons why your succulent is having a hard time:

  1. It gets too much or too little water

One of the main reasons why your succulent does not grow optimally is because it gets too much or too little water. It is very important that you have an adequate watering schedule for these plants that is tailored to their needs. In general, it is necessary to water the succulents once a week or once every two weeks during the summer and high temperatures, while in the winter season it is enough to water it once a month.

The fact is that the succulents that get too much or too little water look quite similar. The leaves lose plumpness and become wilted. They change their color and start to look lifeless. However, if you encounter these symptoms, it is much more likely that the plant needs less water, because succulents adapt very easily to dry conditions and rarely need more water than you provide them.

Tip:

If you want to be completely sure, we suggest that you get a tool called a soil meter that determines the degree of soil moisture. This way you can decide if you need to water your succulent or if you still need to wait a few more days.

  1. Succulent lacks necessary nutrients

In case you notice that your succulent is not growing and that the leaves have started to turn yellow, it is possible that the plant is lacking nutrients and that is why these symptoms occur. In such situations, it is good to consider the introduction of a fertilizer that contains all the necessary nutrients and substances that the plant needs for optimal growth.

Soil intended especially for succulents already contains all the necessary ingredients, but over time they are washed with water and the plant absorbs them, so it is necessary to add a new dose of this soil from time to time or go with a fertilizer that is equally good.

How to do it:

Keep in mind that succulents and cacti do not require too many nutrients, and delivering excessive amounts can even have a counter-effect and lead to the development of pests and plant rot. That’s why it’s important to be moderate. Add the fertilizer to the water when watering the plant (approximately once every two weeks), exclusively in the growth phase.

Extra tip:

Ask the succulent sellers what kind of soil and fertilizers they recommend. Succulent market offers a variety of succulents that you will like and beautify your home, and on their blog you can read various tips for optimal plant growth.

  1. Succulent is potted in a too small pot

To help the succulents grow in the best possible way, it is necessary to plant them in a pot of the right size. It often happens that people plant a succulent in a pot that is suitable at a given moment, but they do not change it over time and the plant overgrows it. Then problems arise, because the succulent needs space in order to develop adequately. If that space is not provided, the root will not be able to spread as much as needed, the whole plant will be distorted and stop its growth, which you will be able to notice very easily.

Solution:

Try to transplant the succulent into a larger pot once a year to allow it to grow naturally, without any obstacles. Do not transplant it into an oversized container, because that is also not good for it. The pot should be a little bigger than the previous one and allow normal plant progress.

  1. It is not getting enough sunlight

Another key factor for optimal succulent growth is a sufficient amount of sunlight. As you know, succulents grow naturally in desert areas where a huge amount of direct sunlight is constantly available to them. If you do not provide it with enough light, it loses the power to perform its natural processes and, consequently, stops growing.

How do you know that plants lack light?

In addition to stopping growth, a succulent can show that it lacks sunlight by twisting its branches and leaves towards a window or other light source, which is a clear sign of what is happening.

What can you do?

Make sure the succulent is always exposed to daylight. If this is not possible, it is a good idea to get grow lamps that ensure that the plant gets enough light, even when it is indoors.

  1. It is not the growing season or the plant just needs a little more time

Finally, one more thing to consider is that maybe everything is fine with your plant even if you don’t see it growing. What do we mean by this? There is something called the growing season and it is the period when succulents visibly develop. However, out of this season, you will not see any changes, even if you take adequate care of your plant. And that is completely normal!

Also, some succulents are just slow-growing plants and it will take you months to notice their growth. Be patient, do everything you can, and the results will not be missed!

Conclusion

Succulents are a great addition to any household, because they are very aesthetically attractive, and require minimal dedication and care. However, even this kind of plant can sometimes go through a hard time. If you notice that the plant has not been growing for months or there are changes on it that indicate that something is wrong, try to find out what it is and take all necessary measures to bring it back to life.

If you have landed on this page it is because, most likely, you are looking for a quick and easy way to increase your audience of users on the Instagram social network. So you are looking for a way to increase Instagram followers on your social profile. As we have seen in several articles, in fact, the famous social network with the Polaroid icon continues to grow dramatically.

On Instagram, in fact, the audience has a much lower average age like what happens on TikTok, where the average age drops further.

Why growing on Instagram is important

But why is growing on Instagram so important? Well who wouldn’t like to become an influencer. Of course, when we talk about Instagram, we must not think only of aspiring fashion bloggers, even companies want to have a prestigious position on social media. On Instagram, for example, companies in the food sector are depopulated, but also in the luxury sector and, in general, those who work in e-commerce.

It is a channel that should not be underestimated, but let’s come to us. In this guide I will teach you all the tricks to grow quickly and how to do it in the most natural way possible.

Are we going to use any tricks? Why, are there any tricks?

Here, the answer is NO. If you are expecting the magic formula, then I already tell you that you will be disappointed. At one time, perhaps, increasing the number of followers on Instagram was easier (even for Facebook pages it was the same). The market has gradually become saturated and it is difficult to get followers in a completely genuine and natural way. Be wary of those who promise you easy followers with a few bucks. Everything comes from sacrifice.

Your content must be real jewels. The web is a highly democratic tool, where the rule that has always been in force is the one that we can summarize in these three words: CONTENT IS KING. Before you think about getting followers, therefore, you need to be able to know what you can offer them. Yes, no one does something without having anything in return.

A person will leave likes and, above all, will continue to follow you, only if on your page he will find interesting content that reflects his nature, his passions. For this it is also essential to know your target audience.

If you have a passion for recipes, for example, you will probably have to refer to an audience of people who very often publish homemade dishes, or who follow important cooking profiles at a national level, you will certainly not turn to a lawyer with a passion for fishing!

Identify the target and prepare to serve them fresh and interesting content: this is the first key to success.

If you decide to go this route, you need to know right away that it will be uphill. The watchword will be PERSEVERANCE, you will have to work hard to win the trust of those who follow you, you will have to propose new and interesting content and follow the strategies I am about to tell you. Are you ready to accept this challenge? Well, let’s get started!

Use Followers Gallery

Find the app in insfollowup.com. This is an Instagram auto liker. With this, you can do light and fun activities to get as many followers and likes as possible. You only need to follow and like other Followers Gallery users’ Instagram accounts for coins that can be exchanged for followers and likes. The more you follow and like, the more coins you get.

Take care of your profile

I have always liked the expression “take care”. On the web, in fact, as in life, if you don’t take care of something it dies. That’s why your profile and your web projects must be like plants for you, to be watered regularly. Only in this way will they be able to give you the fruits you are anxiously awaiting.

The first thing you will have to do, of course, is to create a profile. On Instagram there are basically two types of profiles: the private profile and the business profile. I recommend that you choose this second option. The private profile is indicated, in fact, for those who want to use instagram passively enough, without big growth objectives. With the business profile, however, you will have advanced statistics and, above all, you will be able to sponsor your posts. Not only that, business profiles also allow you to connect your Facebook page, thus obtaining a double advantage.

Post quality photos

It will seem obvious, but it is good to say it. Instagram was born as a social network in which to share photos, only later did the platform expand by adding stories and videos. The social engine is mainly represented by photos, that’s why you should try to post quality photos!

But what do I mean by quality?

I’m not talking about the definition of the photo, of course if you have a good camera this is the right time to use it, but I am referring above all to the quality of your content. By this I mean the uniqueness, the beauty, the emotions that it can unleash in the user.

So far, I only run the tips above and I have managed to reach no less than 20 thousand followers in 6 months. Are you interested in following in my footsteps? Just try!
