  • How do I care for my arrangement?
    There is no one answer to this question. In truth, each plant is unique—you don't want to water them too much or too little, so we recommend about a shot of water per plant at a time. Give your arrangement a LITTLE bit of water every week or every few days in the summer and every week to two weeks in the winter. stick your finger into the dirt—if it feels really dry, your plants are thirsty! Be wary of what you read online.
  • What is a succulent?
    A succulent is a plant that keeps its water reserves in its leaves and stem. All cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti.
  • How much water does my arrangement need?
    There is no one answer to this question. Each plant requires a different amount of water. Water your succulents a little bit when its soil is dry, which could be anywhere from every few days to every couple of weeks, and it may be a little different for certain plants in your arrangement. If you have cactus and succulents in your arrangement, we recommend watering just at the base of each plant so you can give the cactus a little bit less water. Your plants need about a shot of water at a time. More generally, in the winter you can water them once every 1-2 weeks, but we recommend once every 4 days to a week in the summer.
  • What do I do if I've overwatered my arrangement?
    Overwatered succulents look mushy, brown, or a even black. If they are squishy to the touch, they're at risk of rotting. Put them in a dry, warm place in partial sun to let the soil dry out. Always keep them in a place where the water can run out of the bottom—don't keep them in a dish where they will just sit in water.
  • How much sun does my arrangement need?
    Give them at least 4-6 hours of indirect sunlight per day. Most are fine outside in the sun, but they could get sunburned if they're out in hot sun too long, especically in summer in the afternoon. If your plant is outside, make sure it has some shade in the afternoons, and if it's inside, put it by a window that gets good light (in the morning if possible).
  • Why are my succulents leaning to the side?
    They're reaching toward the sun. Rotate them weekly to allow them to evenly access sunlight in order to prevent leaning.
  • Why are some leaves at the bottom turning brown and falling off?
    That's your plant growing! It's completely natural for old leaves at the bottom to crumple and fall off—in fact, it's super healthy, albeit maybe not the most beautiful thing. you can just clear them out if you want or leave them be.
  • Why are there brown spots on the leaves of my plants?
    Brown spots are a resonse to changes in light exposure. If your plants are kept in shady conditions and then left in the sun, they'll develop spots. It can also be the time of day that you're watering them. In the winter, water them in the morning so the drops don't dry in the hot sun immediately and cause spots. In the summer, water them in the afternoons to cool them off. Large brown spots are generally sunburns, and you can prevent them by allowing your arrangement some shade during hot afternoons.
  • Can I return my arrangement if my plants start to wilt?
    We don't accept returns. All plants leave our care with well-draining soil, a regular watering routine, and rotating sunlight, and all we can do after that is give you some pointers on how to continue those care routines. Plants are living things, and won't always look perfect. Some succulents go dormant in the winter and will be beautiful and happy again come spring. We know how much you love your plants, but be careful that your love doesn't translate into overwatering your plant babies.
