How To Care For Your Arrangement

Did you recently visit our arrangement bar and work with a Barista to create a custom and one-of-a-kind arrangement? Continue reading below for a complete breakdown of how to care for your arrangement at home!

WATER

Succulents like to have their roots soaked with water and then dried out quickly. The soil should be completely dry prior to watering the plant. If you water the arrangement too frequently, the plant will die from overwatering.

To determine when your arrangement needs water, feel the soil for moisture. If the soil is dry, water the center of each plant ensuring that the water reaches the roots of the arrangement. If the arrangement is not given enough water, the plant will begin to decay.

SUNLIGHT

Your arrangement will need about 6 hours of sunlight a day. However, to prevent overheating and sun damage, the arrangement should not be placed in direct sunlight. The plant should be kept in a place where it will receive a lot of shade and semi-bright sunlight. If your arrangement does not receive enough light, the plants will begin to stretch. If this happens, you can propagate the plant by trimming off the stretched portion.

PLANT

If the uppermost leaves on your arrangement begin to shrivel or yellow, remove them promptly. However, if the bottom leaves near the soil begin to yellow, they can be left as is. 

Occasionally, an arrangement will outgrow it's original container over time. If this occurs, the arrangement will need to be replanted in a larger container. Stop by our store to have your arrangement replanted and refreshed for the cost of planting materials and a small labor fee.

If you are looking for additional advice, visit our arrangement bar and one of our Baristas will be happy to give you extra care tips on your arrangements and advice on how to keep them looking their best!

Repotting In 4 Easy Steps

1. Water your plant to soften the soil.

2. Place your old container on its side. Support the plant stem with your hand while tapping the pot to loosen the soil. Using a trowel, separate the soil from the inside edge of the pot. Carefully remove the plant from the pot with your hands.

3. Try to loosen the plant's roots with a trowel or your fingers. Using pruners, trim the loosened roots that are growing out of the core rootball so that you only have healthy roots to work with. Additionally, untangle the roots so that they grow outward. This will help the plant flourish in its new pot! 

4. Pour fresh potting mix into your new container to create a small mound at the bottom. Make sure that the plant is centered and upright and press it firmly in the container so the root crown rests about 1/2 inch below the rim of the pot. Add soil around the edges and press down with your fingers to remove air pockets.
