  • nononono! 2-3 times a week is WAY too much! Even regular house plants should not be watered that much! I leave my cactus be. I water about once every 2 weeks, less in the winter. And i water my succulents about every 10 days. They've all been doing great for years!

    Succulants store water for a reason, they do not need to be watered that much...
