So two of these succulents have more than quadrupled in size over the past year. Planted in potting soil, not cactus soil. Water when dry, they aren't cacti. There's a link to fertilizer I use about every other month in the comments.

Directions say use every two weeks. Maybe at first if you want a lot of growth, or if you use cacti planting medium instead of soil because it the water and fertilizer will run right through it. I use this fertilizer ever 6-8 weeks. http://amzn.to/2aQHgwm
