Best Locations For Growing Blue Chalk Stick
Blue Chalk Stick thrives in any room with at least six hours of bright direct light, temperatures between 60°F to 75°F, and moderate humidity. Avoid exposing this plant to temperatures below 40°F. Take caution regarding little hands and paws, because Blue Chalk Stick is toxic to people and pets.
Blue Chalk Stick Sunlight Requirements
Blue Chalk Stick prefers six hours of bright direct to indirect light. Any room with south-facing, west-facing or east-facing windows will suffice.
Blue Chalk Stick Care
Start your Blue Chalk Stick in a 6-inch pot with sandy, slightly acidic to neutral, well-draining soil. Blue Chalk Stick is susceptible to root rot, so make sure the pot drains quickly. This slow-growing, evergreen succulent will need to be repotted when its roots no longer have room to grow. Select a pot that is one to two inches bigger than the original container. You can produce more Blue Chalk Sticks using stem cuttings.
Watering Blue Chalk Stick
This drought-tolerant succulent does not require frequent watering; water it when the top layer of soil is dry and let the soil dry out between waterings. Also, try to maintain this plant in a room with average humidity.
Feeding Blue Chalk Stick
Feed your Blue Chalk Stick a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer at half the recommended strength, one to two times every month during the growing season.
