If you’re not afraid to get a little dirt on your hands then this is the class for you! On Wednesday, July 10th we’ll be digging in to succulent gardens and lots of wine! You’ll of course get to take home your creation but more importantly you’ll take home the knowledge to keep them alive!
Sure, succulents are trendy and adorable and the class is an overall fun night with your friends but don’t you want to know how to keep the little guys alive and well once they’re home? We’re going to give you all the tips and tricks to keep your succulents happy and healthy in any environment.
Set your succulent up for success. If you’re not going to just drop your succulent into a pot than please properly plant it. Succulents do NOT like to sit in water so if you plant your new friend in a 6inch deep pot of soil that’s exactly what it will do. We suggest that you put some sort of rock or gravel on the bottom layer of your pot. This allow for draining so any excess water that falls through the soil doesn’t stay soaked at the bottom. The rock will then keep the water away from the actual plant itself.
Watering too much or too little? Look, succulents are part of the cactus family so yes, you guessed it…they LOVE sun. Don’t keep them in an area that’s dark or far from a window. Again, we mentioned the succulents don’t like a lot of water SO in addition to not giving a huge drink very often to sit in the soil, we suggest you lightly mist them once a week. If you don’t have a mister or spray bottle – invest in one! This humidity and little drink will keep your succulents thriving.
Continuing to grow. You may or may not know that succulents start to “dance” when they are happy in your home. This means their petals begin to grow towards the light and look like they are little legs dancing as they are very unpredictable and wavy.
Drop a photo of your healthy succulents at home here! We’d love to see them!
