So you've just become a proud succulent parent … now what? With proper care and suitable environment, your succulents can thrive and live a long and healthy life. Succulents don't need much water or attention to thrive and grow, which makes them the perfect plant for anyone. The succulent’s box is designed to serve as a planter, so the plants do not need to be removed until they outgrow the box.
Your succulent garden needs to be watered every 7-10 days. Using the plastic dropper included in each garden, water each plant close to the stem with a 2 - 4 full droppers. To fill your dropper, simply put some water in a small container and squeeze the top of the dropper. Place the tip of the dropper in the water and release the top part of the dropper until the dropper is filled with water. You can now use it to water your plants! The water will sink through the pebbles and straight down to their roots, there is no need to remove the pebbles.
LIGHT & TEMPERATURE
Most succulents prefer the temperature to stay between 60 and 90 degrees. One common mistake is to place your succulents in direct sunlight and overexpose them to the sunlight. We recommend you place your garden in indirect, natural light.
After a few months, when you notice that your succulents grown out of the box, it’s time to transfer them to a pot with drainage system. To remove the plants from the box, simply soak the pebbles in water for 5-10 minutes until the pebbles are loose and can be easily removed. Since there might be some soil spilled, we suggest you replant your garden somewhere that can easily be cleaned up! The proper soil to use would be a succulent or cactus mix (can be found at your local nursery).
