Hey folks! Here are a few fun tips to keep your succulents alive and thriving!
Succulents are Shady - Your succulent arrangement will do best in in-direct sunlight. Ideal locations are shaded outdoor areas and inside near a window.
Drink Up - Since most of our planters lack drainage holes, we recommend using a spray bottle and spraying as close to the base of the plant as possible. 5 squirts per succulent should do the trick! If you're worried that you overwatered a container with no drainage hole, you can tip your planter over a sink to let any excess water drip out. Gently hold down the succulents to make sure they don't fall out.
Stand Up Straight - Your succulents will grow towards their sunlight source. To keep them standing tall, rotate your planter every couple of weeks.
Cheer Up Buttercup - It's not uncommon for the bottom leaves of your succulent to dry up. It's just a part of life! Just pick them off when necessary to keep your plant looking fresh.
Change is Good - Your plants may outgrow their planter after a year or so and will need to be upgraded to a bigger container. When replanting, be sure to use cacti soil which can be found at your local nursery. Repotting will ensure that your succulent keeps growing bigger and better.
