How Much Water Does My Calico Hearts Plant Need?
Calico Hearts plants are hypersensitive to overwatering. We recommend using the "soak and dry" method with this succulent. This method requires you to allow the plant's soil to dry out completely before watering. Once all the soil is dry, you should water your plant thoroughly. Soak the soil and allow all excess water to drain out. If your plant is not in a container with drainage holes and a well-draining potting mix, your Calico Hearts will get root rot.
What Kind of Soil Does My Calico Hearts Plant Need?
In order to thrive, your Adromischus maculatus succulent must be in well-draining soil conditions. This plant is susceptible to root rot disease. Any cactus potting mix would be an excellent choice for this succulent. Always allow your plant's soil to dry out completely before watering. You can also add more drainage support by placing rocks at the bottom of the container before putting them in the potting mix.

Feed your succulent Calico Hearts with a fertilizer specific for cacti and succulents. We recommend fertilizing your plant between March and September and never during their growth dormancy period. Also, always fertilize your succulent when its soil is damp. You can do this by watering your plant thoroughly the day before you fertilize. Fertilizing your Calico Hearts plant is not extremely crucial for their success, but it does help with nutrient intake.
