Q: What is an air plantAsked by Emily F., September 2019
Thank you for our question. The official name for These plants is Tillandsia. The reason why they are called 'Air Plants' is because they get most of their nutrients from the air surrounding them.
Air plants are epiphytes, meaning plants that grow without dirt. Air plants attach themselves to rocks, trees, shrubs, or the ground with their roots and are native to the southern United States, Mexico, Central America, and South America.
Q: Can you specify to receive pet-friendly succulents? I loved my first box but my little girl kitty ate the tips off a couple leaves and vomited. The variety turned out to be poisonous to cats. Asked by Susan T., March 2020
Thank you for your question. We know many of our customers also have pets, and while we strive to avoid plants that are not pet-friendly, we cannot avoid them entirely. At this time, we do not have an option to choose pet-friendly plants, but we hope to be able to offer this in the future.
I would like this too.
my cat comes first,i too would love that
Q: After my 3 month gift suscription..You charge me another 3 months???Asked by Elena C., November 2020
Yes they usually charge u once every 3 months
Q: Does the premium box come with two pots since it comes with two plants?Asked by Meghan D., October 2020
Thank you for your question! With your Premium Mix Collection, you can typically expect to receive two containers for your succulent and air plant. However, on occasion we may send one larger container to showcase both your succulent and air plant together. - The Succulent Squad
I received a gift subscription for Christmas and this was my first shipment. I was immediately impressed by how well the plant and accompanying supplies were packaged so that everything arrived in good shape. Everything needed was included in the box, directions for planting and tending the succulent were clear and concise, the "extras" (magnet, pin, Smarties and more) were fun to get, and the end result is a healthy plant in an attractive pot now on my windowsill.
Loved the little plant, the pot, the soil….everything about this shipment.
This was ordered as a gift and was well received!
Love subscription so much but for the expense
We have not had a single one last more than 30

My mother, a huge green thumb, has been depressed since her last surgery. I wanted to buy her a subscription on Cratejoy to look forward to and lift her spirits. I chose Succulents Monthly and WOW it’s been a huge success. She loves plants so I went with 6 months at first. It’s been such a hit that I signed up for a whole year this time. Cool pots, beautiful and unique succulents, pretty rocks for the top, more than enough soil, with a cool presentation of info on each plant. We gather round every month to see what “baby” she received this time. This box is tailored in such a way that it’s perfect for a beginner as well as a seasoned plant lover.
Super Coolbox. It came in tip-top shape with the cutest box, planter, and turned out beautiful, I cannot wait to get the next box.
The container for this month's stunning succulent is awesome!!!
A colorful display of succulence from the Genus of Echeveria...well known for its foliage fleurettes that come in a variety of shapes and colors. Add some Florida beach sand, a decorative deco pot and a blush brush for the perfect finish
Oh yes, we did. We picked out Gasteria, a native from the southwest...of Africa. We further clarified/confused the issue with a Southwestern [U.S] inspired pot, topped with red volcanic rock (because lava rock would be too molten to touch).
