“So... how often do you water a jade plant?“ Our first watering tip is jade plants don’t like to be overwatered! Consistently over watering jade plants will kill them. Always be sure to check the jade plant soil before watering it, and water only when the soil is completely dry. To check if your jade succulent needs water, stick your finger one inch into the soil. If the soil is damp, don’t water it. It’s better to err on the side of under watering this plant. • • • • • #jade #jadeplant #succulent #succulentcare #greenthumb #tipsandtricks #green #succulove #wateringtips #bythings #indoorplants #igdc #madeindc #shopsmall #????

Do you have a beautiful #orchid arrangement that has #succulents in it and you are not sure how to water it? You know you should water your orchid weekly and your #succulent monthly so what gives? Do you need to take the arrangement apart to keep it alive? Don’t worry we have an easy solution for you... grab a couple ice cubes from your freezer and place them on either side of the arrangement but be careful making sure that the cubes don’t make contact with the leaves or roots as this may “burn” the leaves and roots and allow the cubes to melt. This should provide your orchid and succulents enough water while your orchid blooms and when all the #blooms drop at the end of its blooming cycle you can transplant the succulents into another smaller container to begin watering monthly and continue watering your orchid weekly! • • • • • #greenthumbtips #orchidcare #succulentcare #orchidarrangement #greatgifts #shoplocal #green #purple #igdc #bythingsdc #madeindc
