The formation of moss is the result of spore reproduction. In a humid, semi-shady and nutrient-rich environment, mosses will produce a large number of spores, which will slowly grow into new mosses. New mosses will continue to produce spores, so that many mosses can be formed in this cycle. To make moss grow in the pot, you can take the moss outside with the soil, put it on the surface of the soil in the pot, and gently press it with your hand. After spraying water every day, a lot of moss can be formed.

1. Keep warm

Meat usually does not tolerate low temperatures, so the most important thing in winter is to keep warm.Usually, the environment should not be lower than 5 C, and for some slightly cold-resistant varieties, it should also be kept above 0 C.In winter, it should be placed in a warm place indoors, if the indoor temperature is not high, it is necessary to cover the upper part of the plant with plastic bags, which can play a warm effect.

2. Adequate illumination

Fleshy needs plenty of light to grow, and winter is no exception. You can put it indoors in a sunny place and let it receive light all day.This will not only help its growth, but also raise the temperature, so that it can better survive the winter.And the winter light is relatively soft, will not sunburn the leaves of the plant.

3. reduce watering

As the temperature drops, the growth rate of meat begins to slow down, and the ability to absorb water weakens, so watering needs to be less.And winter water is not easy to evaporate, we must keep the soil dry.When the temperature is below 5 C, we should stop watering, so as to avoid freezing water and frostbite the roots of plants.


4. Stop Fertilization

Succulent plants do not have a high demand for fertilizer, and basically enter a dormant state in winter, so they do not need to continue fertilizing.If fertilizer is applied at this time, fertilizer is likely to accumulate in the soil, and when the temperature rises in the next spring and the plant resumes growth, it will cause fertilizer damage.
