Spirited Wreath, Birdhouse, Gift Pot, Ornament, Holiday Tree Care

caring for these designs are so easy it's almost scary!


Congrats on the new member of your family!
If this was a gift, someone loves you very much!

• If you're working with cuttings, spray the moss with water a couple times a week. The cuttings will eventually grow roots into the moss. The piece will last for Seasons if it's happy. Much longer than a cut flower arrangement, but we don't mean to show off. Check for wrinkly leaves. Spot water those succulents if the other succulents look happy. It's normal to have crispy leaves at the bottom, that's how the plant is drinking when it needs more water. If they are easy to pull off, pull them off, if they give resistance, let them sit a little longer.

If you have a Pumpculentspray the moss with water a couple times a week. The cuttings will eventually drink the water and grow roots.Be sure your pumpkin gets plenty of natural indirect light — about 6 hours/day. Do not put in direct sun; it will rot - unless it's a cooler environment, then just keep an eye on it for burning. When your pumpkin starts to look less happy, you have a few choices:  plant the entire pumpkin in a hole in your yard with succulents and moss sticking up from ground; cut of the top and plant that if you don’t have a hole deep enough; gently pull off the succulents and make a brand spanking new arrangement! If you have a faux pumpkin, follow the same care instructions, above, just don't bury it!

• If you have a Gift Pot, follow the same instructions as the Pumpculent. When you first have the planter, you can keep the plants just the way they are for months. Like the pumpculent, just spray the moss a few times a week when needed. If one plant looks wrinkly, you can spot water that one. Just like the other cutting arrangements, roots will eventually grow into the moss. When you are ready to plant them in the gift pot, ​gently peel back plants and moss from the saucer to remove. Fill the pot about 1/2" from the rim with cactus/succulent soil. Top with the moss and succulents and tuck it in around the edges. Wah lah! Now you just need to water thoroughly when the soil is bone dry, making sure the water comes through the bottom. Lucky you, you also now have a saucer! Keep in indirect light for 4 - 6 hours a day.

• If you have a Spirited Wreath, it's okay to submerge the part with succulents and moss into water once a month to get a complete soaking - then continue to spray the moss a few times a week, checking to see if plants are getting wrinkly, while making sure there are no small puddles of water on the leaves. 

• If you have a Driftwood or GrapeVine arrangement, you'll want to really soak the planter a few times a week when warm out to help encourage the succulents to establish their roots. You may have to pour water over the planter several times for the sphagnum moss to start absorbing it. There isn't a lot of moss or depth to a planter like this so it will need to be watered a little more frequently than most of your other arrangements. After watering and waiting a few minutes, I like to tilt the arrangement and get rid of any extra liquid. This makes sure there is no water sitting at the roots of the plants - which they HATE.

• Be sure your Spirited Arrangement gets plenty of natural indirect light (South facing windows are great) - about 6 hours/day - this will keep its color and will keep plants from stretching. If you don't have the perfect spot, all that will happen is the plants will turn green and will get stretched sooner. You can always clip them back and nestle the cutting back into the arrangement. A plant will start to eventually grow from the base where you cut and the top will begin to grow roots. Isn't that amazing?


• Do not put in direct sun - unless it's a cooler environment, then just keep an eye on it for burning.

• When your Spirited Arrangement starts to look less happy, you have a few choices: you can trim the stretched plant and glue the just-cut piece back into the moss or you can take the moss completely of and replant entire piece in cactus/succulent soil.

• If your arrangement has a SolaWood flower in it, feel free to add your favorite essential oil to it. The scent should last a few weeks or longer, depending on exposure to light.
