    How often to water, and how?

    Would you consider this wreath to be one that can be used year-round? And can it be used outdoors as well as indoors? I'm thinking of giving it to my sis'n law for her Dec. B-day. What could I use to make the wreath more festive , RE: Christmas & B-Day. I'm not sure this is the type of wreath you add things to or take things away from. But, I do know you've made a gorgeous wreath.

    So your indicating that the succulents only need moss to grow in? This is beautiful, but I'm wondering if the plants will survive.

    Actually, when you read the post I have attached, you will see there is more than moss for the succulents to grow in, Ruth! Click through on this link for step-by-step directions and pictures. Thanks for writing!

      @RUTH ~ it is packed in quite tightly and there is a good 4 inches or so. Succulents used are fairly shallow rooted and kept trimmed as well. Thanks!
