Considering this, how long do succulent wreaths last?
Longevity. From the time the wreath is planted, you can count on at least one year of use if you have any sense of growing succulents at all. More common is for a wreath to last 2 to 5 years and I have had one customer who reported success for 10 years!
Similarly one may ask, how do you take care of a succulent wreath?
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!
The maintenance is relatively simple on these wreaths and you may need to clip out an occasional dead leaf every now and then. If any of the succulents start to crowd and outgrow each other over time, then you can prune them out, let the stems heal over and replant. Think of it as the wreath which keeps on giving!
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.
These can be found at Hobby Lobby or Michaels.
- First clip all your succulents.
- Then add a layer of moss to your wreath using the hot glue gun.
- Add your succulents on top and hold in place with hot glue.
- Use floral pins to help keep succulents in place. And…that’s a wrap. So simple, right?!
Succulents have unique adaptations that have made them hardy and versatile enough to survive a variety of harsh conditions. Therefore, your succulent should be able to survive on or in rocks so long as they have just enough soil to cover their roots.
