@blocherr it looks great. I've had the best luck by placing mulch over the soil. Of course with it being a succulent, watering isn't needed very often(til top layer is dry)so during the Spring - Summer months I place it outside in mourning sun and afternoon shade.
@blocherr sorry send got touch...lol! 😂 anyway it seems that after watering or fertilizing I don't have but maybe a natural here or there but with the darn flies being the size of barrels...hehe....U r going to have them indoors or out. The soil dries out and the plant benifits from being outside. In the colder months inside I have no problems with them,due to watering is not as frequent and still looks great no matter where u put it😊
@Acetaker thanks for all your feedback. I'm going to buy some Napa #8822 and put that down. I like the aquarium gravel on top for ascetics so I hope with the Napa #8822, the gnats/larvae will leave forever. I live in Phoenix, Arizona and don't even have any outdoor shade where I'm at so with the 114 degrees Fahrenheit//45.6 degrees Celsius (on a cooler day) weather, all my plants stay indoors. ☀️🌵
@kateb now to clean/wipe the dust off, I use a lint-free paper towel and then in a 3 liter jug I use room temperature water and 1 tablespoon dawn dish soap. I use a new paper towel for each individual plant. This helps with adult gnats and keeping them clean. On the top layer of soil I also put the same solution to kill larvae. I'm new to indoor gardening and a lot of this I have learned from making mistakes.
