Plant Succulents

Remove succulent from plastic pot. Gently break up soil around roots. Fill pot about 1/3 full of potting soil and set succulent on top. Add soil around and on top of succulent roots until pot is almost full. Ensure that succulent is firmly arranged in pot. Tip: Succulents need very little water or care. They do need sun, so be sure to set your pots by a window or on a balcony. Water only when the topsoil is completely dry (approximately once every 10 days to 2 weeks). Water sparingly and do not fully soak the soil.

Arrange Pots + Enjoy!

Place your finished succulents in a sunny spot in your home and watch them thrive.
