Tender Loving Care
Succulents are sun worshipers, so make sure they’re positioned in a nice warm spot.
Spritz your succulent good (like really good), then only water it again once the soil is completely dry.
Unfortunately, sometimes succulents die, usually due to over watering.
Dead leaves beneath your succulent are totally normal, dead leaves on the upper parts of new growth are a problem, usually over- or under-watering.
If your plant’s leaves are starting to look yellow and transparent, and feel soggy or mushy, it’s probably suffered from over watering.
First signs of over-watering are that leaves will start to fall off with just a slight bump. If you start to notice soft black spots on your plant’s leaves or stem, the over-watering is getting severe, and it may be difficult to save your succulent.
The best way to avoid over-watering is to make sure your soil is completely dried out before watering again.
Once your succulent is delivered, it’s over to you to fulfill its needs, we take no responsibility for it once it’s left our care.
If this has been your unfortunate case leading to the death of your succulent, we cannot be held responsible, though we will be very sad for you.

Air plant care
Air plants love terrariums and globes. While it’s a great way to display your air plant, ensure to remove it for a weekly watering and allow drying before putting it back. Mist your air plant on regular basis to create humid settings. The smaller the globe, the less misting is needed, alternately soak your Air plant in water for 30-60 minutes and allow to dry.
If you grow your air plant in large terrarium with a good air circulation, spray it few times a week with clean water.
Ensure your plant is dry within 4 hours while in terrarium.
Caring for your Succulent
How do I water my succulents?
You will want to use a mister or a spray bottle. The best rule of thumb is to wait until the moss or soil is dry before watering again. Depending on your climate, you will want to mist at the root once every 3-4 weeks. If you have a hanging succulent frame indoors, you will need to remove it from the wall before watering.
Where should I put my succulents?
Succulents can absolutely grow inside, but you will want to make sure they are receiving enough sunlight. They love bright, indirect sunlight, so putting them by or near a window is best.
Do succulents like a lot of water?
This is very important...do not over-water! I know some of you think you are loving your plants more when you give them more water, but it is quite the opposite for succulents. They like drier soil, so let your soil dry out before you mist it again. That's why we recommend misting to help prevent this.
Can I leave my succulent frame out in the winter?
Some succulents can tolerate frost but typically succulents hate the frost. They are mostly water based, so when put in freezing conditions, they freeze and die. If your climate lends itself to frost then it is best to bring your succulent garden inside until the frost is gone.
What If you need to replant?
When dealing with live plants, sometimes one just doesn't make it. It's okay, you're not a horrible person. It happens to the best of us. Just follow these simple steps to replace a lost one.
Go to your local nursery and pick up a 2" succulent of your choice.
Lay your vertical garden flat and in an area that can get a little messy.
Remove the moss that is around the lost succulent and put aside.
Pull out the dead succulent
Dig out enough soil in that area for the new succulent to fit.
Put the new succulent in the hole you just created and pack the soil down around it.
Add additional soil if needed
Lightly mist it to help the soil compact
Get a chopstick or skewer to help you weave the moss you set aside. You will want to weave and tuck the moss around the new succulent.
Let the vertical garden sit flat for 1 week until the new succulent gets acclimated.
Simply hang back up and enjoy!
