Carefree enjoyment with ROOTLESS in the house

ROOTLESS succulents stay beautiful for an exceptionally long time, even without water.

What is a ROOTLESS succulent?

The name says it all: ROOTLESS succulents are succulents without roots. The word succulent means ‘full of juice’. ROOTLESS succulents consist of only a rosette. As the plant stores its moisture in this heart of leaves, you can never give a ROOTLESS too much or too little water!

ROOTLESS succulents are grown in a seed pot, in which they develop to just the right size. When the rosette of a ROOTLESS succulent is big enough, it is cut loose from the potting soil. Examples of ROOTLESS succulents are Echeveria, Aloe and Gasteria. ROOTLESS succulents are also referred to as cut succulents.

Each of these varieties is beautiful, strong and easy to maintain:

  • High-quality succulent
  • Can also be suspended in a pot
  • Timeless and easy to combine
  • Months of green happiness, WITHOUT any need to water
  • Perfect to use as a decoration for parties and celebrations (including weddings)
  • A genuine eye-catcher

How does a ROOTLESS survive?

A succulent has the capacity to store moisture in its roots, stems and leaves. This is how the plant survives dry periods. They are real survivors!

Some succulents, such as the Echeveria, only store water in their leaves. The Echeveria’s leaves are thick and stretched to full capacity by the leaf juices.

The plant absorbs moisture from the lower leaves first. This mechanism allows the plant to survive for months. As a result, you can enjoy your ROOTLESS for a long time without having to give it any extra water!


From where does the Echeveria originate?

Just like the Crassula, Pachyphytum and Pachyveria, the Echeveria belongs to the family of Crassulaceae. Echeverias grow in the north-eastern part of Mexico, in an area with mostly deserts and barren hilly landscapes. They grow here on a rather rocky substrate.

The Echeveria has a rosette of fleshy leaves, in an enormous diversity of colours varying from deep green to reddish. There are varieties with woolly, hairy leaves and varieties that are completely smooth. The Echeveria is a fantastic succulent with numerous possibilities.

From where do the Aloe and the Gasteria originate? 

We also use Aloe and Gasteria in our arrangements. These succulents belong to the Asphodelaceae family. They grow in the vast and rugged landscapes of South Africa.

Both the Aloe and the Gasteria can be distinguished by their green triangular leaves, on which you can discern a unique pattern. The leaves, ranging in colour from light to dark green, have a lovely compact growing habit.  


ROOTLESS succulents remain exceptionally beautiful, even when they are not watered. Thanks to the following care tips you will be able to enjoy them for a seemingly infinite amount of time.
