DIY Succulent and Wood Planter (Set of 2)
Set this pair of happy little plant friends in the sunniest nook of your home and watch these low-maintenance succulents thrive. This set is a cinch to assemble and comes with two seasonal 4-inch rosette succulents potted in soil, two rustic wood boxes, and instructions. We love the idea of using them as spiffy bookends on a shelf, or placing them next to each other on a windowsill.
Shop Succulents ships out their fresh plants express on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. This way, your new succulents will arrive by week's end and won't sit in a warehouse over the weekend! If you order on a Thursday or Friday, please allow additional shipping time. Your patience will be rewarded!

Care & Notes
Be sure to immediately bring your package inside and completely unwrap your plants right away. All plants are packaged with shredded paper to keep them secure, dry, and warm in transit so we recommend opening the box from the bottom and carefully removing the plants. Place your plants in a location where they will be able to receive soft sun or indirect light. Succulents are drought tolerant plants that are easy to care for and require very little maintenance.
Water: Only water the plants when the soil is completely dry. If the soil has any moisture, do not water them at all. When you water your plants be sure they are being watered in the evening or late afternoon. Succulents best absorb water and nutrients from the soil during their rest period (which is in the evening). Be sure to never mist your succulents. Misting Succulents or Cacti will cause rot and/or fungal diseases. Misting succulents will kill the plant. Succulent plants need to be watered thoroughly when the soil is dry so that the water reaches the entire root system; then they need to dry out.
Sunlight: When you first receive your plants, keep them in soft sun or indirect light only and slowly introduce them to direct sunlight. Not being careful with proper sun introduction can cause the plants to sunburn. Indirect light for the first few days is ideal. The next step is typically giving them direct morning light only.
Temperature: Succulents are very tough plants but they are not indestructible. A good rule of thumb is to not allow your plants to be in temperatures below 40 degrees without protection. Succulents truly thrive between 50 degrees and 85 degrees.
