  • Monthly

    Apply a balanced succulent fertilizer in the spring through fall season. Withhold fertilizing in the winter months while it rests. 

  • 2 Years

    When receiving the Calandiva plant, do not repot immediately but wait at least 6-12 months. Repot in the spring, using a 2" bigger pot to keep the roots drier. (Too big of a pot could cause the soil to dry slower, which is not helpful.) Hydrate the plant prior to repotting. 
    Place a piece of screening at the bottom of the container over the drainage hole to secure the soil and allow it to drain. Use a succulent soilless potting mix with perlite to help with drainage. 
    Lift the plant and release the roots against the existing planter. Use a clean knife or garden trowel to wedge between the pot and the soil to loosen. 
    Inspect the roots. Notice if there are any dead or rotting roots and trim off with sterile pruners. 
    Ensure the plant is sitting about 1 inch below the edge of the pot to avoid water spillage. Add more soil and backfill around the sides by tamping down. Fill up to the soil line but not over. 
    Water thoroughly, leaving the soil damp but not soggy. If settling occurs, add more soil. 
    Water well to dampen the soil and let it drain. 

  • Monthly

    When yellowing leaves occur throughout the season on mature plants, remove them. If stems become too arched or heavy, prune back as needed. To clean, shower them with filtered water or non-fluoridated water.
