1. Provide a very well-draining potting soil. All of our succulents will come with a cacti/succulent potting soil.
2. 6 Hours of sunlight. Place the potted succulent in a sunny location. They will do the best in a window sill that is south facing. They will do well in west and east facing, but northern facing windows may not give enough light for them to maintain their colour and shape.
3. Allow the potting mix (soil) to fully dry out between waterings. There is no right number of days to water them. Each location may change depending on the humidity and the amount of light the plant gets.
4. You should fertilize your succulents at least once a year. You can fertilize them once a month in the summer time. You can use a balanced, all-purpose, water-soluble fertilizer (10-10-10 or 20-20-20) diluted to half the strength recommended. Follow the instructions on the bottle.
Marimo Mossball Terarriums
Marimo Moss balls are such a cool trend in plant care. Don't have a lot of light? These are perfect for your home!
These adorable little moss balls are a type of algae that grow at the bottom of lakes in Japan, and the currents of the lake roll them along the sandy lake bottom, forming their adorable ball-shape!
Since they grow at the bottom of lake, they love low light settings.
Care is super easy!
Large Moss Ball Terrariums:
Care is super easy! Once weekly, remove gently pour out the water, as well as the moss ball and rocks. Rinse your jar and your rocks. Give your moss ball a squeeze (It's like a sponge!) and roll it in your hands to help maintain it's shape.
Refill with clean tap (or distilled) water and you're done!
Mini Moss Ball Terrariums:
Once weekly, gently pour out the water, so the sand and moss ball remain in the glass bottle. You CAN removed the mini moss ball with a pair of tweezers if need-be. Do so gently, so as not to tear the moss. Roll in your hands, place back in the jar. Refill with clean water (tap water or distilled water) and you're good to go!
If your moss ball starts to take on a brown or yellow hue, it may be getting too much light. Give the water a change, and move it to an area of your home with less lighting.
Place your succulent pumpkin in a sunny location. Succulents love sunshine!
Water once weekly by gently running water over the moss the succulents are attached to. You can do this with a spray bottle, plastic syringe, or by setting your tap on 'drip'.
Be sure to allow any water to run off the top of the pumpkin. Succulents do not like to sit in water.
When your pumpkin starts to get soft, you can simply remove the succulents by pulling on them gently. Place them in a pot of well draining soil, and placing them in a window with bright light, and enjoy watching them grow!
