How to Plant the Succulent From Your Bloom2Bloom Bouquet

If you’re lucky enough to get one of the Bloom2Bloom succulent bouquets, you get to enjoy the best of both worlds! But don’t toss your succulent once your blooms have gone. Follow the steps below to replant that little guy, as well as learn tips on how to keep it alive. With the correct potting, you won’t have to worry about overwatering, we promise!

  1. The Pot - Be sure to use a pot with holes at the bottom for draining.
  2. Rocky Soil - You’ll want to use a sandy, well draining soil and/or small rocks. With regular dirt, you’ll need to water more often, and then it becomes easier to overwater your succulent.
  3. Remove Succulent From Bouquet. Your succulent is attached to a long wooden stick; grab the base of the succulent and pull gently (you can wiggle it back and forth a bit) until it comes off.
  4. Plant It - Plant your succulent snuggly into the rocky soil.
  5. Water More During Hot Months - During hot, summer months, your succulent should be watered about once a week. A good rule of thumb is to make sure the soil is dried between waterings. During cooler, winter months, the soil will take longer to dry out, so adjust watering accordingly, and aim for about once every other week.
  6. Less is More - Most of the time, underwatering is less harmful to the plant than overwatering, so err on the side of less (water) is more!
