- Soil: Tylecodon naturally occur in granite covered by lime-rich, nutrient-poor sandy soil. The best mix would be aerated sandy-loam with minimal nutrients. Consider adding sandstone or granite fragments to help drainage.
- Water: Requires watering during winter months, with little to no water during dormancy.
- Dormancy: During summer months
•Succulent Dormancy• In the age of international growers, we often find people growing species out of their natural habitat. In some cases this is easy, in others a little bit more difficult. It helps to know when your succulents grow and when they sleep (as not to overwater). Dormancy is a healthy part of a plants life cycle and should be followed for optimal growth. Here is a quick guideline for growers provided by World of Succulents. Note: This list does not apply to each and every species, so for more info visit www.llifle.com/Encyclopedia/SUCCULENTS/ to read more specific care instructions.

Some species wont go dormant if its too hot or too cold. If you do not regulate temp, but have an open greenhouse or garden then remember that dramatic fluctuations will make your plant more prone to infections. #LocalSucculents #succulents #dormancy
