An arrangement like this should last quite a while, a few months at least, with no water. The first plants to wither will be the string of pearls. The lower leaves of the ‘Kiwi’ aeoniums will dry, and where they were attached to the stem, hairlike roots will form, seeking soil. And those strawflowers will outlast the succulents! Providing, of course, that they’ve been prepped with faux stems. Their stems are brittle; its the flower head that is “everlasting.” – Debra Lee Baldwin
