How To Care For The Trachyandra Tortilis?

Summer, this is when the plant is dormant, it is known to drop leaves and appear slightly weaker. During this time, you should let your pot dry out completely and only water the Trachyandra Tortilis with a minimal amount of water around 1-2 times/month. It should be placed in a warm, well-ventilated area for the duration of its dormancy.

Autumn, as the temperatures cool, you should see new leaves appear, at which time you can give your succulent more water. During this time, you can expect to water your succulent every 2-3 weeks while growing through spring. Most important is to make sure that the soil is completely dry to the bottom of the pot before watering again. Have a look at our watering guide to keeping your plant healthy.
