We hope you’re loving your new Succulent Bowl living gift. Here are our simple tips to keep your succulent arrangement alive and thriving.
Place your succulent bowl where they can soak up 4-6 hours of sunshine each day, preferably in the morning. Keep in mind that the afternoon heat (especially in summer) can burn the leaves. If your succulents aren’t getting enough light, they’ll start to stretch and lose their vibrancy. This happens because it’s chasing the sun, so move the plant to a brighter spot. Also, turn the pot now and then, so it gets sun on all sides.
To give your succulent the best chance at growing indoors – find a sunny spot bathed continuously in light; near or on a window sill. It also wouldn’t hurt to sometimes shift your succulent bowl outdoors to soak up the rays and fresh air. Place the succulent bowl in a protected area where they get constant, yet indirect light.
We deliver your succulent bowl well watered and ready for display. Wait for at least a week or two before watering.
When it comes to watering your succulents: less is more. It’s possible to overwater your new house guest, so the rule of thumb is – only water the succulents when the soil’s completely dry. To water, soak the soil thoroughly, and allow the water to drain. Succulents have a dormant period (during winter) which requires less watering.
Tip: the top of the soil may look dry but it can be wet beneath, so before watering your plant, dip your finger (or a wooden skewer) into the soil to feel the level of moisture. If it’s dry, it’s time to water.
Temperature & Humidity
Succulents prefer average to warm temperatures and average humidity.
Over time, the lower leaves of your succulents will dry up. Gently remove any dead leaves which should pull away easily. If some healthy leaves fall off, you can propagate and grow baby succulents from them.
Like any living thing – fresh air, love and water will keep your succulents smiling.
