Yeah, you probably knew these plants as easy houseplants. Cacti and succulents store water in their leaves and stems. Because of this they simply need almost no water.
In summer, most cacti and succulents need a little water once a month. As autumn comes in sight you can further reduce the amount of watering. In most cases cacti and succulents need a sip of water once every 2 months in winter. It must be possible to do that, right?
Although the Yucca looks like a palm, it certainly isn’t! What the Yucca is, is that it is very strong. The plant originates from the desert of Central America. So the Yucca is used to some extreme weather conditions. You can skip a watering without damaging the plant.
In the summer the Zamioculcas needs water once a week. But… In winter a Zamioculcas only needs water once every three weeks. It is better to give a Zamioculcas too little water than too much. So even if you forget to water your Zamioculcas in the summer, that’s no problem. Take it easy!
The Sansevieria is one of the most easy plants there is. Especially if you put the plant on a darker spot, it really doesn’t need a lot of water. In the summer the watering means that you have to water it once every two weeks.
As soon as autumn arrives, the irrigation may be somewhat reduced. If you only water once every 6 to 8 weeks in the winter, then the Sansevieria is fine.
