DIY Succulent Sphere

Create an eye drawing DIY succulent sphere for your garden or home. It’s easy to make and maintain!

Required Materials

  1. Garden Shears
  2. Screwdrivers
  3. Awl
  4. 4 Pieces of Thin Tubing
  5. Floral Pins
  6. Assorted Succulents
  7. Moss Sphere

1. Remove Dirt

First things first, remove the dirt from each variety of succulent you got.

2. Cut Ends

After you remove the dirt, use garden shears to cut off the ends of the plants. Wipe the excess dirt off from the shears between each cut to keep the cuttings clean.

3.  Leave for 2 Days

Collect the cuttings in a tray and let it sit for around two days. This gives the cutting enough time to form a callus on the end.

4. Dunk Moss Sphere in Water

Now, dip the moss sphere in water. Moss spheres have soil inside which helps the plants to remain fresh.

6. Allow to Dry

Hang the moss ball in order to dry it until it’s slightly moist.

8. Tubing

Insert a plastic tube inside the ball, this will help regulate the water level into the soil inside the ball. Before putting it in the sphere, make several holes into it using an Awl.

9. Insert Tube in the Sphere

Once done with making holes insert the tube in the sphere.

10. Make Holes

Make small holes in the moss ball to insert the succulent cuttings into the ball.

12. Use Pins

If some of your succulent cuttings are loose, use floral pins to keep them in place until they root.

13. Watering

Your homemade DIY succulent sphere is all ready to use. Hang it on your front porch or balcony or indoors.
