Succulents are a fantastic drought-tolerant plant to use indoors and outdoors. These colorful water-wise plants look great in the yard, window boxes and hanging baskets. Plant a succulent wreath for a whimsical and festive look!
Succulents come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. One thing they all have in common is they retain water in their leaves, making them a brilliant low-water need option.
Spray succulents with a water bottle every 2 – 3 weeks once established. Water once a week for the first few months.
Once you’ve planted the wreath, lay it down for at least a week to help the plants establish roots. Then hang it wherever you’d like, inside or outside – succulents make excellent houseplants! Succulent wreaths hung outside do best when protected from the wind and afternoon heat.
This living piece of art will last for 2 – 3 years. When it begins to wear out, replace the burlap and soil, re-plant the succulents, and add new moss. A double layer of burlap will help the wreath last longer.
