Watering succulent and succulent plants

Watering succulents and succulents:

Succulent plants store a large amount of water in their tissues, and are therefore very resistant to drought, since when rainfall is scarce or absent, they reuse the water contained in their tissues; it is therefore not true that succulents should not be watered, otherwise they are no longer able to replenish their internal reserves and mummify. This type of plants need watering only when the climate is hot and dry, so let's avoid watering them during the winter, but from spring until September we remember to provide water, even if rarely. We only intervene with watering when the soil is really very dry, leaving it dry even for a few days before wetting it. When we go to water the succulents we take into account the fact that they are often potted in very well drained and dry soils, and we will have to insist a lot to moisten them completely; therefore, let's water them rarely, but with good quantities of water, which will have to thoroughly wet all the soil contained in the pot. If the soil is very dry and sandy, it may happen that the water we supply is completely drained from the soil, it is therefore necessary to insist, providing water for a good period of time. If the earthen bread around the roots is dry and hardened it may be useful to water our succulents by immersing the pot in a container full of water, making sure that, like a sponge, the soil absorbs all the water it needs to moisten to better.
