SUCCULENT CARE

WATER

Water your arrangement only when the soil is dry. This is generally once a week in the summer, and once or twice a month during the cooler months. Use a wooden stick (provided upon purchase) to test the moisture level in the soil. If the stick comes out dry, it's time to water. Keep in mind that succulents will not likely survive if they are over watered.

 

LIGHT

More sunlight brings out color in many succulents. More shade makes succulents display a deeper green. Most are happiest in an environment where they receive sunlight for half of the day. They can be placed near a window that gets bright, filtered light, or in a naturally bright room. 

 

INDOOR VS OUTDOOR PLACEMENT

Cacti and succulents thrive best outdoors but some varieties can survive indoors provided that they have sufficient natural light. If you have them indoors, it is recommended that you take them outside at least every couple of weeks to give them some fresh air and filtered light. DO NOT place them in direct sunlight: this may cause the plant to go into shock and burn. 

 
 

TILLANDSIA CARE

Tillandsias, also known as air plants, are members of the bromeliad family. Of all indoor plants, they are the easiest to care for.

They don't require any soil, so they can be placed in any kind of container, or mounted/tied onto almost anything.

WATER

Place plants face down in a bowl of filtered water and submerge them overnight. After the soaking is complete, gently shake the plant to remove excess water and let them air dry upside down on a flat surface. Do not allow the plants to sit in a puddle of water. Complete this process every two weeks or as needed. 

Air plants also love the rain. If there is rain in the forecast, place your tillandsias outside in a safe place where they can soak up the rain drops. 

LIGHT

Air plants like bright, filtered light. They do not like direct sunlight as it is too intense. Place your plants near a window or in a naturally bright room. Dark rooms are unfit for air plants as they do not provide them with the necessary elements they need to survive. 

 

TERRARIUM CARE

 
 

SUCCULENT TERRARIUM

WATER

Water your succulent terrarium every 3-4 weeks. Use a dropper to evenly distribute the water among the base of each plant in the terrarium. We also recommend watering any pieces of wood within the terrarium. The moisture in the wood will slowly be absorbed by the leaves of any air plants inside. Remember, the worst thing you can do is overwater your terrarium. This will cause the plants to rot. Therefore, always err on the dry side. If the soil looks damp, or if there is any water pooling at the bottom of the glass vessel, watering is unnecessary. 

 AMOUNT OF WATER BY TERRARIUM SIZE

5" Hanging Teardrop Terrarium...................................................................................................1/4 cup

8" Terrarium......................................................................................................................................1/2 cup

12" Glass Sphere Terrarium....................................................................................................1 & 1/4 cup

13" Horizontal Glass Terrarium........................................................................................................5 TBS

 

LIGHT

Place your terrarium in a spot that gets bright, indirect sunlight. Near a window, or in a naturally bright room will best suit your new terrarium.

 

AIR PLANT TERRARIUM

WATER

Gently remove the air plants from their placement inside the terrarium, being mindful not to bend the leaves too much. Completely submerge the air air plants upside down in a bowl of room temperature, filtered water for anywhere from 3-8 hours. After soaking, gently shake the excess water from the plants and allow them to air dry completely before placing them back inside the terrarium.

LIGHT

Air plant terrariums can be placed in a naturally bright room, or near a window that receives bright filtered light.
