Tip for making false stems on your succulents from Cindy at The Succulent Perch! When wiring and taping to add your false stem you will want to make sure not to cover up all the stem where the leaf nodes are- that is where the roots will develop. Using tape, too high up on the stem, may cover up the leaf nodes. You can also just use a firm wire, like an 18 gauge, insert it into the succulents stem and then into the sphere…no tape needed! The 18 gauge will be stiff enough to insert the succulent!

    Hello. Wonderful video. One question for you. When you use the green pins, do you pierce the succulent to hold it in place or just use the pin to push up against the stem?

    That link you provided seems to require you to have some sort of business to shop with them. Do you know of any places online where a non-business owner can buy moss balls fairly inexpensively? (I'm seeing some other results on my searches, but they're all $35 plus shipping for a little 6" moss sphere.)

    +Angie Clawson I remove the roots so they will easily slide into place in the moss sphere. This sphere is tightly packed with moss (and I mean, TIGHT with moss 🙂  to where a root ball wouldn't fit. I make cuttings, let them callous, insert them into the sphere, and they will form brand new roots and do great! Thanks for the question! ~Laura

    Just curious…why do you have to remove the root before planting??

    This was so cute. I only have 1 question, with the hens and chick's I have some and they get pretty big, but with planting them (like she did, in that container) Will the size, keep them from growing so big? Thanks again for sharing this
