Succulents in terrariums

Succulent arrangements in terrariums and other cute containers make gorgeous gifts! If you were on the receiving end of such a cute gift, keep reading for specific care instructions!

For best results, please re-pot your succulent into a container with sufficient drainage. Succulents need lots of air for their roots, so use a cactus soil and add Perlite, or you make your own mixture following this recipe.

  1. Succulents need very little water.Β Water your new plant by pouringΒ enough water into the soil so that it drains out through the bottom. You should only need to do this once a week or so if keeping the plants indoors, or a every couple of days if keeping plants outside and it’s been hot (not rainy). I normally water my succulents when the top half or so of the soil is dry. After some time, you’ll know what works for your plant πŸ™‚
  2. Succulents love sun!Β Many people love succulents for the tight rosette shape most of them have. If succulents are not receiving enough light, they will stretch out and become etiolated or leggy, as seen here. Also, if you notice your succulents turn from its original color to green, it’s likely not getting enough sunlight.
  3. Succulents appreciate nutrients. Just like any other plants, succulents thrive with nutrients from fertilizer from time-to-time. You can fertilize your succulents once every six months.
  4. Look out for pests or disease.Β Succulents are just as prone as any other plant to being affected by pests or diseases. If you notice your succulent starting to droop or generally look unhappy, try to investigate by looking out for any signs insects or fungus. You can also look up general symptoms online to help find the cause and find instructions on how to eliminate pests.

      Hi Norma!

      Thanks for the interest. We have a small space in Yona, but due to our type of business license, we cannot have anyone on the property. We do, however, meet up with customer and make deliveries! So if there’s anything you’re interested in, please let us know and we can arrange to meet!

      Also, we’re working on having our plants sold at Home Depot! This might be another few weeks from now, but we can also give you a heads up when we start stocking them up there.

      Thanks again!
