A let down for plant collectors

My Garden Box on Jun 2019

I got the succulent garden and I have to say I was super disappointed. I saw all of these cool looking boxes on the website like the bonsai, herbs, and mounting a staghorn that I thought it would be something cool and a little different to complement my collection. Yes I saw the succulent garden one too but I assumed it was a past box and wouldn't come around again. The succulents in the box lacked originality and were things I could pick up for a dollar at my local nursery, I mean come on at least throw in a cool one like a lithops or a old man cactus or something besides hen and chicks and aloe. I was hoping for something I would have struggled to assemble myself or wouldn't have thought of but that's not what this box delivers. Honestly I'll probably use the lava rocks for my orchid the nice large Terra Cotta for my mint and keep the succulents long enough to regift them. The packaging was nice, the instructions were really good, and the concept was well thought out, but I could not think of a bigger letdown of a box than succulent garden. Two or three years ago, right when plants were picking up, it would have been exciting but now it's just a bummer and I fell for paying $35+ dollars for it!
If I order from them again it'll be the one time boxes where I know what I'm getting which...
