Hey guys! The second I saw this little shadow box at JoAnn Craft & Fabric store, I knew it would be perfect to retrofit into a succulent planter! It was super easy, and didn’t require quite as many succulent cuttings as some of my other projects. To care for this type of arrangement, I take it down off the wall, lay it flat, water it just enough to moisten the moss (but not excessively- there is no drainage!), tip it slightly to drain any excess water, then hang it back up! I find watering with a large syringe makes it quite a bit easier! Succulent cuttings root easily into sphagnum moss, and can live in this sort of arrangement for quite a long time. I would expect to get up to a year out of this arrangement without any major overhaul, just minor grooming. I also picked up the little wood cut out at JoAnn’s as well, then hand wrote the ‘Welcome’, so you could make it into whatever kind of sign you want! Thanks so much for watching! 💜 ~Laura Succulents from Leaf and Clay – Shadow Box with hooks – Hardware Cloth – Sphagnum Moss – Other supplies: Plastic to protect wood Wire Cutters Staple Gun Hot Glue Gun Screwdriver or pen Favorite Tools – Favorite Soils – Buy Succulents – Video Gear We Use – Follow us Here: Facebook: Instagram: Twitter: Email: Mailing Address: Garden Answer 580 S Oregon St Ontario, Oregon 97914 Brands we partner with: Related PostsHeart Shaped Succulent Arrangement (Full Version) // Garden AnswerIndoor Planter Inspiration with Garden AnswerPopsicle Stick Mini Pallet w/ Succulents // Garden AnswerHow to Make a Succulent Wall Garden with a Picture FramePopsicle Stick Mini Pallet w […]

    I have a Echeveria Allegra hybrid that had some marks over where I have picked off leaves for propagation. Now I have a small baby succulent growing from one of those marks, I want to move it to a seperate pot, but I don't know from which part of the stem to cut off (the baby is really close to the tip of the mother plant). I really don't want it to die :'(((

    What a pretty arrangement of succulents! I love succulents because they can go in full sun or full shade.

    Love watching your videos! I now have hooked my sister on them. Was happy to hear about your baby, you must be so excited. We (my sister and I) find it funny when we visit our little mom and pop nursery, and find plants you have talked about . I.E. Bobo hydrangeas, and boomerang lilacs! Bought them, and planted. !! Thank you for your advice from someone in small town Oregon. Molalla
