Taking Apart Your Living Succulent Dreamcatcher
For those of you who want a little extra enjoyment out of your Living Succulent Dreamcatcheres, we put together this tutorial show you how to take it apart and replant your succulents!
Outgrown Succulent Dreamcatcher
Pot with Drainage
1. Gently remove the succulents from the wreath. Use the scissors to cut any wires holding them in place. Pull off any dead leaves or glue that remain on the stem. Any healthy leaves that come off can be saved for propagation!
2. Place your cuttings in a pot of pre-mixed cactus soil. (Or make your own by mixing equal parts potting soil and pumice.) If the hanging succulents have roots, gently tuck them into the soil, otherwise carefully remove 3 to 4 pearls from the top of the stem and stick in the soil, or simply place them on the soil and they should develop roots on their own!
3. Place your pot in a bright location but avoid direct sunlight! Since these plants have been indoors they will burn easily. After a few weeks, you can gradually introduce them to sunlight. Just don’t rush it, a few hours in the morning to start is plenty!
4. Wait a day or two to water. Water thoroughly then allow the soil to dry out before watering again. In the right conditions, roots will start to sprout and even single leaves can be placed in the soil and propagated!
