This living frame is unique and 100% handmade. Mother plants are grown locally and outdoors.

It can be hung on a wall or placed on a table, indoors or outdoors, as long as it has plenty of light.

Maintenance

Most succulents are very hardy and, unlike many other plants, thrive on neglect! They require minimal care and, if you follow just a few simple guidelines, will do well.

Light

This living frame will thrive either inside or outside but it needs plenty of light. It requires either filtered sun most of the day or 1 to 2 hours of direct sun each day. If it had been indoors, in summer you will need to introduce it to direct sunlight in stages: 1-2 hours the first week, 3-4 hours the next week, then all day.

During the year, and according to light and temperature, your living frame will change colour and shape.

Water

Succulent plants are very efficient when it comes to collecting and conserving water. They are, however, subject to problems when exposed to too much water.

The amount of water required depends on many factors: time of year, temperature, humidity.

During the cooler months, water less frequently and when a sunny day is expected or during the warmer hours of the day so that any excess evaporates in the sunlight.

During the warmer months, whether the living frame is indoors or outdoors, check it more often. If you are unsure how often to water your living frame, leave it until the plants start to shrivel slightly, go limp, or the leaves begin to pucker.

Another simple operation is to feel the weight of the box. The lighter it feels, the drier it is. When in doubt it is safer to underwater than to overdo it.

Generally, once a month, put the frame flat, and give it just half a cup of water. Wait 15 minutes to let the soil absorb the water. Repeat this process if the frame still feels very light. You will soon learn the pattern.

The moss used as groundcover helps to keep the soil moist. Whenever it looks dry, please spray it gently.

Pruning

If you need to cut some of them to control excessive growth, cut one or more leaves at the base of the plant.
