Water and Light Recommendations

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.

Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

First time ordering

Beautiful plant, it was healthy and even had new growth on it in the packaging.

Love it !

Love it !

Love the plants I received

Love the plants I received and the attention given to the packaging of such delicate plants. I would love to know how to propagate the Dancing Bones so in the future when I go to visit individuals who reside in Residential Facilities with my dog who is a service/Therapy dog, I can bring them a little pot with a plant to keep in their room, which brightens their day. I usually make them Knitted Twiddle Muffs to occupy their hands as they sit idly in bed or wheelchairs, many of them non verbal. Unfortunately at present, I am unable to purchase the amount of plants I would need to bring to the many individuals I visit in several Residential Homes and cannot bring some into one home and not have enough for all of the residents. Because the plant is so cute I know that the women and men would all enjoy having one, and the aides would certainly not mind helping them tend to them, and living here in So. Fl. the plants would get lots of sun and humidity and perhaps some outdoor air.
Any help you can provide would be great appreciated.
I am looking forward to watching mine grow and grow and grow, as it is sitting in an east window getting early morning sun. I will be buying few more for myself in the near future.

cute !!

i love these they are very cute. very good for filling in space between rosettes
