Succulents enjoy bright sunlight in the baking sun, where they will thrive in hot summer temperatures. It is best, when first taking a place outdoors to expose it to bright sunlight gradually to prevent sun scorch.
OUTDOOR: choose a sunny location. Check the soil and drainage. If the soil is not porous enough, add 3 inches of sand or other gritty material to increase drainage. Top the area with a layer of pebbles or small rocks to act as mulch.
INDOOR: The ideal condition for growing indoors will be in a bright light such as a south or east window, supplemented with extra hours of light under fluorescent tubes. Optimum length of light should be around 12-14 hours of light per day.
Ideas and How-to's
Recommended for You:
Soil: Well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. Plants prefer soil with a slightly acid to neutral pH.
Light: Phlox grow best in full sun (or partial shade in the South)
Spacing: 15 - 18 inches
Fertilizing: A general purpose slow-acting granular fertilizer worked into the soil around the plants in the spring is sufficient for phlox for the season.
Winterizing: No special care needed. Leave foliage standing in winter, and clean up spent foliage in spring.
Maintenance & Pruning: Cut back stems after flowering by 1/2. This will maintain dense growth and attractive habit for the summer months. This will also encourage some fall rebloom. Cut out any brown stems.
