The succulent ball will need to be watered about once a week to keep it looking good. You could water the entire ball with a hose, but as the succulents grow and cover the entire sphere it will be difficult for water to penetrate inside.
Keeping this in view, how do you make a succulent sculpture?
Similarly one may ask, how do you make a succulent moss ball?
Start by moistening soil and roll it into a ball. Include peat moss and more water as needed. A 50-50 ratio of soil and peat moss is about right when planting succulents. You can wear gloves, but it is still likely you’ll get your hands dirty, so enjoy.
How do you make a plant sphere?
If you are creating a ball topiary, use wire and ties to create a large, round, open circle. With one hand, place the circle around your topiary, and with the other, snip away any branches that extend past that circle. Move the circle around as you move, and you’ll end up with a perfect ball topiary every time.
Place a topiary plant against the inside of the frame, and gently pull the stems of the plant through to the outside until the root ball lies against the inside. Fix the root ball in place by gently stuffing moss around it. Continue to place plants in the frame in the same way, along the frame’s sides and top.
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.

Remove any extra leaves from the bottom of the stem. … The plants should have a “callous” on them, meaning that the bottom of the plant has dried out. This forms a few days after cutting the succulent, so you should wait a few days before planting freshly cut succulents.
