Succulents in Crystals

Light:

indoors; provide bright indirect light. 

Water: 

water at base of plant, enough to saturate the soil, only when soil is totally dry (~3-4 weeks).

If getting more light may need to be watered more frequently.

Succulents in moss

Light:

indoor or outdoor; bright indirect light.

Water: 

mist lightly, aiming for the moss at base of plants, every 7-9 days. mist more often in hot & dry weather and less often in cooler & wetter weather.

Maintenance: 

for hanging pieces: leave flat for ~4-8 weeks before hanging to allow roots to grow

once plants begin to outgrow the art pieces, trim them back & replant cuttings in ground or containers.

general succulent care

 

LIGHT:

Succulents like bright indirect light. Most prefer to be outdoors but some species do better in lower light conditions than others like; Haworthias, Gasterias,  Aloes, Agaves, Cacti, Panda plant, String of Pearls, and String of Hearts. The inspiring Fairy Blooms breaks it down for you here

WATER:

Succulents (and cacti - which are types of succulents) are plants that store water in their leaves and stems - making them great water-wise plant options. Now this doesn't mean that succulents don't ever need to be watered. They do. But it does mean that they don't have to be watered as often as most ornamental and house plants. The most important thing to remember when watering succulents is to make sure that soil is completely dry before watering. A good rule of thumb is "when in doubt dry it out!"

indoors:

Most of my indoor succulents are planted either in terrariums or in pots with no drainage holes so I water very sparingly (so as to avoid root rot). Terrariums I water once per month with a water dropper (just enough to saturate root area of each plant) and arrangements and indoor pots I water every 10-17 days.
