They’re not necessarily goners, I’d say if our succulents was damaged by frost.
Oh, No, My Succulents Froze! and Frost Damaged my Succulents?
Study more about this in my latter posts. Here’s What to Do. In fact, no need to do anything. In a few months older leaves will dry and fall off, and rest might be hidden by newest growth. The question is. Notice damaged tips on these aeonium? While meaning that at 32 degrees, water in their tissues crystallizes, expands, and bursts cell walls, plenty of succulents always were frost tender.
That said, this usually can turn leaves to putty, irreparably damaging the plants.
You could gain a few lifetime saving degrees by covering your succulents with sheets, lightweight fabric, or frost cloth.
While during which temperature may drop near freezing or below, rainstorms are mostly followed by clear, windless nights. Not plastic, that may cause more damage than it prevents. In summer heat, those same ridges and valleys deepen, shading and protecting plant. Whenever enabling photosynthesis, that equals energy, that in turn fuels modern growth, becoming process engorged with rainwater exposes more of their skin to sun. You usually can virtually hear their crenelations pop and stretch as they plump with water. They’re such easy plants not far more than balls or bats and yet way they grow is amazing. Consequently, so there usually were ribbed cacti…those that look like round or columnar accordions. They’ve been waiting all year for it, No surprise. I’m sure that the resulting bulge is usually a new leaf, It’s as though the pads were water balloons being squeezed. Remember, opuntia cacti that was doing a whole lot of nothing for months rapidly grow modern pads that may double a junior size specimen in a matter of weeks.
Of all succulents, cacti seem to respond the most drastically to rain. They’d maybe be dancing, Therefore in case they weren’t rooted. It’s like demonstrating how to grow monkeys in Alaska.
Basically, in which case, move them indoors, provide majority of sunlight and fresh air, and keep a dehumidifier going. Is it worth it, sure it’s manageable. Of course flip side always was that they don’t survive well with it. Now that succulents were probably pretty reputed, I’m occasionally finding out how to grow them in tropical climates that have a big deal of rainfall. By definition, succulents have succulence quality.juiciness. Even thence, in humid climates, they may mildew. They’re expressly designed to get by without a bunch of rainfall. So, grow them in containers, and move them under shelter when weather turns so wet.
