This is not as hard as you think

A Living Succulent Frame – Just finished and here’s how you can do it!

The final product – lying flat where it will for a week or so as the succulents root in the moss – with weekly misting and watering.

Love this and hope you’ll try – here are the steps:

Supplies – succulents, frame, wood to add box, wire cutters, staple gun, spray adhesive , wire mesh, spray adhesive, screw driver and screws, and wood glue plus chopstick to use as a tool

Playing with the layout as it could look in the frame. Make sure you have enough succulents – I had to go back and buy a few more – you can also fill in more moss when you are done.

Take soil off the tiny succulents so that only the roots are showing.

Use a chopstick to secure the tiny succulents into the moss – use your finger too but chopstick helps and mist/moist the moss so it’s easier
