How to Fertilize Cycads, Succulents, and other Drought-Resistant Plants<br>by Maurice Levin, Jurassic Garden

Drought-resistant plants, such as cycads and succulents are increasingly popular in a sustainable garden.  Distinctively beautiful, adaptable to many soils and conditions, they often need little maintenance. And, we’ve learned they will benefit from organic fertilizer to feed their soil.

 

So, how to fertilize? Some cycads and succulents look similar to palms and other tropicals. However, their fertilizer needs are very different.


In fact, whether your landscape looks 
ordinary or extraordinary may depend on how you fertilize your plants.

This guide will show you:

  • How to fertilize for maximum beauty and growth
  • Which nutrients your plants need, and how to get them
  • What to do and what not to do when you fertilize
  • When to fertilize, and why
  • Is your water a problem? What can you do about it?
