Care for your Bubble garden – Succulents enjoy bright sunshine so place in a well-lit, sunny position. Avoid freezing temperatures (frost free). Water using a mist-sprayer when the soil appears dry. Be careful not to over-water. Succulents store water in their leaves, their stems and their roots and do not like being kept wet all the time. When your plants begin out growing your Bubble Garden; re-pot each plant in to a pot using a gritty, well-draining soil; our Bonsai Compost is ideal for this. In Spring/Summer your large succulents will be putting out new growth, usually from the base of the plant. These can be cut from the main plant and will grow in to new plants if potted in to soil. Re-plant your Bio Bubble Garden with the new (smaller) succulent plants.
