How do you keep succulents alive in a wreath?
In the winter months succulents grow very slowly and don’t require as much water, so you won’t need to worry about watering often. When you do water, you can lay the wreath in a tub of water, and let it soak for about 5 minutes. Then let it drain, and you can hang it again!
Bright light is best with little or no direct sun. A bit of direct morning sun is fine but avoid hanging your wreath in any spots with hot, strong sun. Those fleshy succulents will burn and the roots will dry out way too fast. What’ll make it last even longer is to have it under some kind of cover.
To water your succulent wreath, dip it in room-temperature water for a few minutes to allow the sphagnum moss to soak it up. Then allow it dry a bit before watering again. Overwatering kills more plants than anything else. Succulents efficiently store water so they need watering less often than most people believe.
Keep It Moisturized
One of the most important steps in keeping a wreath lively and fragrant is preventing it from drying out. Spritzing the wreath with water every other day or so will help greatly, especially in warmer climates.
But of the varieties, the Conophytum bilobum, aka the “heart succulent,” might be the most charming of all. … These plants grow in tiny clusters and look like cartoon hearts are sprouting from the ground.
