Beside this, what do I need to make a succulent wire wreath?
Also to know is, 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!
How long will a succulent wreath 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!
I used two bags of Sphagnum moss. Wet the moss so that it sticks together and place it inside the wreath form. Don’t pack it too tight as you will need room for the succulent roots. Once you have filled in the wreath form with moss, wrap the form with wire to hold the moss in the form.
Simply place cactus pads on your wreath form. Make sure to overlap to cover base.
- 5-6 spineless cactus pads.
- Wreath form.
- Toothpicks & gloves.
- Flower or bow for your embellishment.
