Materials

  • Succulents (Martha used Aeonium, Crassula, Echeveria, Gasteria, Haworthia, Kalanchoe, Sedum, and Sempervivum), simplysucculents.com
  • Scissors
  • 12-inch wire wreath frame, topiaryartworks.com
  • Sphagnum moss, topiaryartworks.com
  • Moistened soil
  • Copper wire
  • Pencil or screwdriver
  • Floral pins
  • Fertilizer

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Cut off piece of succulent 2 to 3 inches long.

  2. Step 2

    Leave cuttings out for a few days in order for them to dry and create calluses on the bottoms. New roots will grow from the stem.

  3. Step 3

    Place a 12-inch wire wreath frame on sphagnum moss.

  4. Step 4

    Place succulent roots into holes. Press moss around roots and secure with floral pins, if necessary. Don't bunch them too tightly as they need room to grow. The succulents will take approximately 6 months to fully grow, depending on their environment. Don't hang upright until roots have fully grown.

  5. Step 5

    To water, submerge in water for 10 minutes. Allow to dry completely between watering. Fertilize about once every 6 weeks.
