The Tylecodon pusillus succulent requires bright indirect light for most of the day, with some direct light in the morning or late afternoon. This succulent does not need a lot of light, so it can be kept in medium to low light conditions. Avoid exposing this plant to too much direct sunlight as it may cause scorching.
Tylecodon pusillus succulents prefer a well-draining soil with a slightly acidic pH. The ideal soil should be composed of equal parts of coarse sand, loam, and organic matter such as compost or peat moss. Additionally, it's important to ensure that the soil is not too dense or waterlogged as this can lead to root rot.
The Tylecodon pusillus succulent is a drought-tolerant plant, so it does not require frequent watering. To keep it healthy and happy, water it only when the soil has completely dried out. Make sure to give it a good soak each time you water, allowing the excess to drain away. This succulent should be watered about once every two weeks during the summer months and once every three weeks during the winter months.
The ideal humidity conditions for the Tylecodon pusillus succulent are between 40-50%. This means that the air should not be too dry or too humid. It's best to keep the succulent in an area with good air circulation, such as near a window or vent, and mist it lightly every few days to help maintain the right humidity levels.
