Purple Sultanas does well in full sun, they do not do well at all in shaded areas or locations. They will grow in soils that are rich in nutrients. The soil you use will need to be well rotted before planting.
Mulch should be applied on the surface of the soil as soon as you pluck the plant from the pot. The mulch protects the roots against winter frost. You should also mulch around the base of the plant as this will help to conserve moisture. This is especially true for the deeper-rooted plants.
To prepare the soil for purple succulents it needs to be thrown out or taken off the existing topsoil. If you live in a cold area you may need to aerate the soil every few months, for purple plants this usually happens in the spring. A heavy frost will kill the roots, so it is a good idea to have a deep hole dug beforehand. This will also help the plant to establish a root system that is strong.
After preparing the soil it is important that you water the plants thoroughly when the first sign of weathering appears. This will encourage new root growth. The timing for watering is when the soil feels dry, not when it is damp. You will also want to keep a close eye on the soil so that you do not over water.
When choosing purple plants it is a good idea to choose ones that are native to your area. These plants tend to grow quite well even in areas with hard water and can survive in many different habitats. They are one of the most successful plants to have around the house as they look extremely pretty and are easy to grow.
If you are going to try to grow purple plants from seeds, you will have a harder time getting them established. This is because they require special conditions to germinate and grow. Most often they are planted directly into the garden soil but sometimes you will have to purchase them. There is another process that you can use to get seeds started and it involves mixing mineral fertilizer with your soil.
Once you have prepared the soil, it is time to plant the purple succulents. Keep in mind that this should be done in the spring when temperatures are high. This will ensure that the root systems can get the best possible start. You will need to add extra water during the process so make sure you keep an eye on the moisture levels. Be patient and in no time at all the purple plant should begin to flourish.
You should only mix the soil up a few times prior to planting. This will allow you to get a better idea of how much water they will need. You will also want to check on the root development of the plant to see if they are growing properly. After you have mixed the soil take a look at the plant. Make sure it looks healthy and starts to grow new leaves.
Do not expect the purple plant to grow very fast. They like to sit in the same spot for a while and eventually they will die down. They don't like a lot of direct sunlight either. You will have to move the plants around if you want to place them where they will get the right amount of sunlight. If they have too much shade their growth could be stunted.
Make sure that you are taking care of the soil mixture that you are putting on the plant. Most plants love the nutrients that you provide for them but purple ones are unique because they need more. You should feed your plants on a regular basis with compost, fertilizer, and soil that has enough nutrients in it to encourage them to grow.
You will find that purple succulents do not like to be sprayed. They don't like the feeling of being soaked with water. They are very hardy plants though and do well in most areas. They will add color to your garden and bring enjoyment to you and your family.
