Succulent Wall Boxes and Succulent Crates

Making a succulent frame is similar to making a succulent crate. We will soon have detailed instructions for these projects so if you are brave enough to start now, here are some basic tips.

We have used everything from old coffee cans to old rain boots. Wrap some succulent cuttings with moss and green floral wire and hang them in a tree!

  • Fill your frame or crate with moss. Make sure that there is a solid cover on the back. You can use landscape fabric or a pressure treated piece of wood.
  • Use wire or burlap to create the front cover on top of the moss you have placed in the frame, box or crate.
  • Use a chopstick and poke holes where you want to inset your succulent.

Basic tips for Succulent Cuttings

If you are in need of succulent cuttings, we are selling single plants in packs of 5, 10 and 20. Fat Plants cuttings for sale have been growing in our gardens or greenhouses for at least 3 months. They will be delivered dry of soil with their roots wrapped in moss.

If you have your own cuttings we recommend that you let them sit and callous over for at least 3 days before placing them in your moss or other planting medium. We also recommend that you use some sort of rooting gel, such as Clonex. A small amount of this amazing product goes a long way.

Water is the enemy for your new cuttings. The beauty of succulent plants is that they can survive for long periods of time without water. Some succulents are more sensitive that others.
