MCG Mini Succulent Ornaments - Hanging Clay Pots: Small 1.5" terracotta clay pots planted with an adorable succulent plug and finished off with a festive red ribbon ribbon. Ready to hang on the tree or tuck into your decor. Sets will include a different succulent variety in each pot.
They'll easily last through the holiday season; we recommend watering only when the plugs are completely dry, or once every 2 or 3 weeks. From all of us at Mountain Crest Gardens: have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
PLEASE NOTE: Varieties will be similar to photo, but substitutes may be used. Multiple orders will have repeats.
WATER: Rooted plugs can be watered as little as once or twice a month. Be extra careful not to overwater tin pail ornaments—they do not have drainage holes. In general, always err on the side of underwatering. Don’t feel like watering your succulent ornaments at all? Have no fear, for winter dormancy is here! In this season, succulents need very little water; any wrinkling caused by temporary drought will quickly disappear once normal care resumes.
LIGHT: Most succulents need sunlight to thrive, but trees and holiday decor are not necessarily placed in sunny locations. Fortunately, winter dormancy slows and reduces the impacts of low light, such as “stretching” and greening. That said, colors may still fade over time without direct sun. A gradual transition over 1-2 weeks back to sunnier conditions will restore the succulent to its original vibrancy. PRO TIP: the Sempervivum and Echeveria rosettes prefer indirect sunlight while the green Haworthia do well in lower-light areas.
TRANSPLANTING: After the holidays have passed, you may want to keep them as a potted plant. Try to use pots with drainage holes and fill them with a well-draining soil, such as a cactus/succulent potting mix. Transplant the plugs and move them into their ideal light conditions; Sempervivum and Echeveria should go near a sunny window whereas Haworthia can tolerate low, indirect light. Water at least twice per week while roots are establishing, then reduce the frequency and only water when the soil is fully dry. For optimum growth, move Sempervivum outdoors permanently in the spring.
