Create your own beautiful succulent tree with this sphagnum moss tree form! Plants will root directly into the moss and last for many, many months before needing to be transplanted (growth rate will depend on many factors but mainly on specific plants chosen). You can use Haworthia (as seen in the last photo), succulent cuttings or rooted succulents, even ivy! The possibilities are many!
The tree form is 9" tall, 11.5" tall when placed in the wooden base (included).
Plants are sold separately.
DIY TIPS: I used approximately 55-60 Haworthia plants (in 2-inch pots) to make the completed tree you see in the last photo which, when completed, stood 15-16" tall with the base.
To make planting easier, simply submerge the tree in water for 20-30 minutes before planting to soak the moss. If using potted succulents rather than cuttings, remove all soil from the roots. Use a planting tool, a butter knife or a pair of closed scissors to create a small hole for each plant. One of my favorite tools for pushing roots into the hole you created? A sturdy pair of chopsticks! Tuck the roots gently into the hole and secure with wreath pins (available at craft stores or on Amazon). It will take several weeks for the plants to become firmly rooted into the moss. Water when moss has mostly dried out but misting gently with a garden hose for several minutes to allow water to again soak the sphagnum moss.
