Adding the Succulents

- Place the succulent directly into the soil
- Repeat for all succulents you add
- Take a photo! Show off your #UnicornSucculentPlanter and tag us #Sucstu on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter so we can see how it turned out!
- Succulents require bright, indirect light — about 6–8 hours a day.
- Water sparingly using spray bottle every 7–14 days. Only water when the soil is dry and let drain completely. When in doubt, don’t water!
