Unbox your order immediately! Your succulents have been sitting in the dark for a few days and they are desperate for some sunlight!
LIGHT: Place your arrangement where it will receive at least 4 hours of bright light a day, preferably morning light. Rotate frequently so all sides of your arrangement get enough sun. If you notice your succulents etiolating or losing vibrancy it's because they not receiving enough light. Avoid harsh high-noon summer sun which can burn your plants.
WATERING: In most cases, watering less is best with succulents. It's far more common to kill succulents from over-watering than under-watering. They can go 1-2 weeks in between watering. Make sure the soil/moss is completely dry before watering. During the growing season and warmer months, you may want to water more and water less in the winter or when your plants are dormant. When it's time to water, we prefer using a directional water bottle to thoroughly dampen the moss and soil that the succulents are adhered to. Avoid letting water pool in the center of rosette succulents or use a manual air blower to dry them off to prevent rot. You can add products to care for your arrangement from our store here.
TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY: Succulents prefer average to warm temperatures and average humidity. In dry areas, you can run a humidifier to help keep your plants happy. Succulents do not do well in hot summer heat which can burn your plants. They also can not tolerate cold and freezing temperatures.
PRESENTATION: We do our best to make sure everything succulent is firmly adhered to the moss on your arrangement but occasionally some will fall off in shipping or over time. If that happens, just attach the plant again with glue. The glue does not hurt the plant and it will continue to root and grow. Within a couple of weeks, you may notice new roots and even babies growing on some of your succulents. We thinking watching succulents grow and propagate is fascinating and one of the reasons we are so drawn to these hardy little plants. Once you are ready to retire your arrangement, gently pull off the succulents and plant them in your garden or in a container with drainage filled with cactus soil. You can even use them for your own DIY crafts!
