I do not know if you think you can do it but I just sprinkle just enough water on top of the soil just to keep the soil from totally drying out. Most people feel they have to water until the water runs out. When I did that through the winter my plants died.

drdawg said:Though I don't grow many succulents, in my experience, the shriveling is always due to dehydration, not over-watering. Root/stem rot will be typically seen when you constantly overwater or have a water-retentive potting media.
