How often do I need to water my topiary?
That depends on several factors.
Relative humidity. If the relative humidity is low, then you need to water more often.
Air movement. If your topiary is placed where it is subjected to moving air, etc. under a fan, air conditioner vent, open window, or outside, then it will need more frequent watering.
Weight and color of topiary. When topiary becomes lighter in weight and lighter in color, it needs watering.

How To instructions for DIY stuffing your topiary.
Screwdriver or Dibble Tool
Creeping Fig Vine Plant
The moss needs to be moist enough to be pliable to stuff into the main parts of the frame. If you purchased a dry block of moss, you will need to add water and let it absorb (we usually allow a couple of hours). The tricky part about stuffing is making sure you pack it and wrap it tight enough so that when it's time to plant, the inside environment is dense enough to allow root growth. As you pack the frame, you'll start to wrap the exterior with the fishing line to both secure the moss inside as well as mold the shape. Once you have stuffed and shaped, you can trim off any excess moss. Do the stuffing outside, if possible, as it gets quite messy!
