SUCCULENTS:

Succulents are very easy to care for and do not need much water.

Succulents are tough and can easily tolerate droughts - Simply use the little spray bottle provided to water them once a week. 

For them to thrive, they should get their roots soaked every now and then but let dry before soaking them...Do not water them daily.

They are happiest near a window where they are able to get some sunlight.  If that is not possible, place them near the brightest area of your office or home.

We have added some rocks at the bottom of each garden to provide them with a natural drainage system. Do not worry about wetting the rocks.

If you feel they are outgrowing their environment, feel free to transfer them into a larger container (and don't forget the draining rocks at the bottom).


AIR PLANTS:

The air plant is actually the cousin of the pineapple!!  It is known as needle leaf Tillandsia.

Since your plant won’t come out of the glass, you won’t be able to soak it - you have to rely solely on misting, which is why we have provided you with a small glass mister.  When misting your air plant, try to mist around the plant, rather than into the plant. You don’t want to over-water it, but rather to create a humid environment. Many people do not water often enough. Mist your plants with 2-3 sprays for small globes, more if in a larger open container. If the humidity is very low in your home, misting more often may be necessary for healthy, thriving plants.

Depending on the vessel, I suggest starting by misting weekly, and adjusting as necessary.

Research into the superpowers of houseplants revealed how they actually clear the air of toxins!  Yes, they detect and absorb mercury from the air!

ORCHIDS:

These tropical little miracles should be fine if you simply add one ice-cube to their roots once a week.  The ice will melt and give them enough water to last through the week . They should be allowed to dry out in between waterings.  If you stick your finger in the earth about 1'' deep, and the soil is dry, give it water.  Other than that, it should be fine.  They do like humidity and thrive on light, but not direct sunlight as that will burn them.

MONEY TREE:

The Money Tree (Pachira Aquatica) is also called the “Good LuckTree” and is an age-old token of good luck and an invitation to good fortune.

It is the most popular plant for "Feng Shui" because it creates positive energy.

Includes a mini glass spray bottle for your plant.

Although it likes humidity in general, you should let its soil dry out between watering. A good schedule for most environments is to water when the top 2-4 inches of soil are dry.
