Succulent Frequently Asked Questions
How do you keep a succulent delivery alive?
There’s an art to keeping live succulents healthy indoors. While succulents are known to withstand extreme conditions and don’t require a lot of attention, if they’re not taken care of properly, you can end up with dead and wilting plants. To keep a succulent plant delivery thriving, think about their natural habitat: the desert. This means you should keep your succulents in direct sunlight, and provide them with enough water, but be careful not to overwater them. Just like all plants, succulents need room to breathe and grow. So, to create the perfect potted garden, give your succulent flower arrangements ample sunlight, water, and room.
What are the benefits of sending a succulent arrangement delivery?
A delivery of beautiful succulents is the perfect way to show someone how much you care about them. This is because succulents have many proven benefits! When you send succulents, have peace of mind knowing they have special powers, such as the ability to:
Clean and purify the air
Add oxygen to the air
Increase pain tolerance
Help people breathe better
Succulents make great office plants and home plants, as they improve the air quality around us, resulting in a better sense of clarity, focus, and peace.
How often should a succulent be watered?
As you now know, succulents are desert-dwellers, meaning they’re used to arid climates with little rain. However, in the desert, when it rains, it pours. What this means for your succulent arrangements is that they don’t need water all the time, like green plants, but when they do need water, they need a lot. Instead of watering your succulent Zen plants every few days with a trickle of water, wait until the soil becomes dry, and then some. Once the soil is bone dry, place your succulents in the sink or outside, and water them (a lot) until you see water coming out of the bottom of the planter. Then, wait a week or two and water your live succulents again.

How to care for an air plant
After receiving an air plant delivery, the next step is figuring out proper location and care. A member of the bromeliad family, air plants can thrive for several years – all without soil! As their name implies, air plants capture moisture and nutrients from the air around them, and are exceptionally easy to grow, whether in the home, office or backyard. Air plants love indirect sunlight, and prefer a moderately humid environment. Every 10 days or so, fill a bowl with lukewarm water and soak the air plant for a good half an hour. Then let it dry on a towel before placing it back in the container. Fertilization with water-dissolvable grains or an air plant foliar spray is not necessary, but can help deepen colors and improve growth. Air plants only need to be fertilized once a month during spring and summer months.
