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!
Additionally, how do you make a Christmas wreath out of succulents?
Likewise, people ask, how do you secure a succulent wreath?
To anchor the plants, insert a floral pin around a leaf or stem of each succulent. This will keep them in place, especially if you plan to hang the wreath before they are fully rooted in the frame, which takes six to eight weeks.
How often do you water a succulent wreath?
Editor’s Tip: Water your succulent wreath when it feels dry—every three to 10 weeks, depending on temperature and lighting. Soak the wreath in a container of water for at least one hour.
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.
When you’re watering projects made with sphagnum moss you’ll need to run water over the moss a couple times to get it to absorb water. You can add sphagnum moss to just about anything to help succulents grow better. For example, I’ve been cleaning out my house and ended up condensing my spices.
Using a pencil, make a hole for the succulent and insert the root into the moss. Once you have three or four in the moss, start securing them with a piece of wire. Wrap it carefully around the wreath, being careful not to pull off the leaves of the succulent plants. Continue all the way around the wreath form.
