Q: I want to know what specific soil you use. I don’t like to bug two bags of soil as you suggest. I use Bonsai Jack as I find regular succulent and cactus soil too “thick.” So please let me know. TAsked by Susan M., July 2021
Q: Hi I received my first shipment and all of the succulents were damaged what do I doAsked by Christina S., June 2021
Q: What kind of soil do you plant them in?Asked by Susan M., May 2021
You can use succulent/cactus soil mix or potting soil with perlite added for extra drainage. Regular, well-draining potting soil will work as well
Q: Do you offer 3 month subscription?Asked by Christopher D., February 2021
yes we do
I received one tiny cutting of a decent looking succulent, and then 4 tiny cuttings of a scraggly looking succulent, which were wrapped in 2 pieces of newspaper. For $6 plus shipping, I could have bought two healthy succulents of this size that are actually rooted and potted.
Originally got this as a 3-month Mother's Day gift, but my mom called me after the first month to say she didn't want any more plants "like that." I didn't ask, just assumed she was grumpy and happily changed the delivery address to my own.
After receiving month #2, I see what my she meant. The pot is very cute, and the succulent is probably fine, but I (foolishly?) assumed dirt/cactus soil would be included. The pot is very small, and a tiny bag of dirt would go a long way. I don't have dirt, that's why I buy tiny plants online. So kind of a disappointment, especially with the pricey shipping. Will not renew.
This matters a lot less, but presentation was also poor - the care/planting instructions were stripey, like the printer nearly out of ink. I don't mind using newspaper for packaging, which is mentioned on some other reviews. Recycle reduce reuse!
I got a new plant stand for Christmas = room for expansion! So, I chose this box as a way to add plant babies. The packaging and care to insure my plant arrived safely was perfect! The plant itself is cute and I can’t wait to see it grow.
I have loved my 3 boxes so far. However, All my plants have already died and I am very bummed. Not sure what I did wrong. -Tricia
I loved the plant, “pot” and having instructions with the name. It’s terrific! Thank you!
I love it!
The plants are beautiful and the pots are very, very nice. I really look forward to my next box.
I recieved my first month and for the price the plant and the pot are pretty cheap looking I could find something like this at the 99cent store not satisfied
I saw a different box I preferred. I cancelled my subscription, a big red DEACTIVATED covered my order immediately. The box was sent anyway. I emailed the seller. I got an empty email. Nothing written in it and no refund. This was 2 weeks ago and still no correspondence and no refund.
The plant I got looks sad and sick.
