Laxmi Kamal Plant Care
The Vishnu Kamal plant is a type of succulent and thus requires fast draining and porous soil. The soil should be such that it can flush out excess water swiftly. If the soil is not able to do so and the plant has to sit in standing water, it gets root rot very easily and can get messy to a point that you might lose it.
So for proper Laxmi plant care, the soil should have a good amount of coco peat (for porosity) & sand for faster drainage.
I recommend this amazing succulent potting mix for this plant.
You need to be very careful while watering the Vishnu Laxmi Kamal plant, as too much watering can cause root rot in the plant which starts with the yellowing of leaves and then slowly turning brown in color.
The golden rule to water this plant is to water only when the top 1 inches of the soil feels dry to touch and while watering it make sure to water enough that the water comes out of the drainage holes.
Do not water over its leaves but directly over the soil. Because due to its leaves structure the water droplets stay on the top of the leaves and cause rot in that particular place.
For watering it you should use a long neck watering can like this one.
You will need to adjust the watering routine during summer (increase frequency) and winter season (water only when the topsoil gets dry).
Laxmi kamal plant appreciates a good amount of filtered bright sunlight. It can handle direct sunlight except for the harsh afternoon sunlight during summers.
The best place to keep this plant is somewhere it can receive morning direct sunlight and then gets to enjoy filtered bright sunlight (like a window sill).
