Whether hung on a holiday tree or elsewhere, these diverse succulents are great conversation pieces. We gave these cacti-family members a chance to show their stuff in the dead of winter, and they responded splendidly. They last for many weeks as living ornaments, and then can be planted in soil to enjoy for years to come.Read More
There are artists, crafters, makers, builders, carpenters and allother types of artisans right here in our own backyards, and our hope is that when you think of beautiful, handcrafted products from across the globe, you think of them too. Buying domestically can be more eco-conscious, as it reduces transportation needs and consequently the energy and natural resources expended in the process; this makes us huge proponents of shopping locally. Succulents do not require a great deal of care, but please keep the following in mind when caring for your succulents. Succulents prefer bright light, but cannot tolerate intense direct sunlight. Succulents that are under too much light intensity will have a bleached appearance and succulents without enough light will become elongated and appear to "reach for sunlight." Over-watering succulents can cause the plants to die. To water your succulents, use a spray bottle to avoid over-watering.
Succulents need a brightly lit area but not intense or direct sunlight. Be sure not to over water, simply mist with spray bottle. If succulents start elongating they need more light, if they start looking bleached they are receiving too much intense sunlight. Bonus: Cut back tips and replant them to grown your own succulents!Read More
