Q: Hi, I was wondering if it was too late to get the May box? Like I already see the sneak peek for June & was waiting for payday tomorrow. I really liked the June box and a couple of other past boxes.Asked by Angela C., May 2022
Hi Angela, thanks for asking. ;-) So as of right now we can still do a May box for you but we would need to substitute the lavendar scallop plant with another similar plant. We're also out of the May salt and pepper shakers, but we can substitute a different extra item as well.
Q: Are there additional shipping charges?Asked by Karen G., May 2022
Yes, there are shipping charges for each box.
Q: Is the first month free?Asked by Rachel H., March 2022
No, the first month is not free unless there is a special promotion running that states that it is.
Q: I'm in a colder climate (ohio), during the winter months will the box include a heat warmer?Asked by Sean S., December 2021
We have found that the heat warmers tend to run out before the crucial time of arrival on your doorstep and tend to be ineffective. Luckily, cactus and succulents can withstand rather cold temperatures, but we also try to pick the winter plants that are more hardy for the weather conditions. We also do temperature checks on the areas we ship to and if it's just too cold, we will notify you and delay the shipment slightly to avoid a cold spell. There is also a tracking number for each shipment, so on the expected day of arrival, it is highly recommended that the package be brought in as soon as possible after it arrives. Despite all of that, If the...
I completely recommend this subscription box and the shop. The care that they use to package and ship the plants and pottery cannot be beat. I received a three month subscription from my daughter as a Mother’s Day gift. Each shipment also included a hand written personal note as well as a bonus small gift. I love this gift and this shop!
Fantastic! We're so glad you like it! Thank you so much for the kind words!
They came packaged beautifully and the succulents are amazing.
Oh, good! Thank you, Amy, for taking the time to let us know! Glad you are enjoying it!
Love the July box; the theme is awesome. Well packaged and great quality plants.
Thanks, Holly! Glad you like our July Beach/Ocean theme!
I should write a detailed review but there is just too much delightfulness and perfection here to do The Cactique justice. Just know that the photos and other glowing reviews do not lie: This small business sub box truly is that darling from the shipping box itself to the enclosures to the plants. The quality and thoughtfulness of the packing are simply superb, as well. Seriously, not a grain of potting soil has been displaced in my deliveries. If you're a fan of wee, juicy succulents in unique, handcrafted pots, definitely do not hesitate to sub to The Cactique. You won't be sorry. Also, I think this would make for an awesome gift and perfect sub box for just about anyone, even those with brown thumbs.
Thank you so much, Carrie!
I love how personal and the amount of care that go into these packages! My little guys are super cute. This is my second box and it's beautiful! I absolutely love it so far.
Thank you! Very nice of you to say. ;-)
I have been receiving for 6 months and will continue to do so as long as finances allow. I am so happy with this box and look forward to it coming. Great customer service. I only had 1 plant not servive even with our winter shipping. Keep up the great work.
Thanks, Viola! We're so glad you like it! And as for the plant that didn't survive, contact us via e-mail and let us know which one it was, we'll be happy to send a replacement. ;-)
I loved the first couple shipments so much that I signed up for a year.
Wow, we are so happy that you love it! Makes our day! Thank you!!!
Your product is wonderful and I love the personal touches. The packing is very efficient and the cactus arrive in perfect condition. I really look forward to this box every month. Keep up the good work!!! Jamie Buckner….firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you!!!! Yay!
I opened my box today and was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful pottery, plants and gifts as well as the handwritten note. The thoughtfulness that you put into this box shined through each Item I viewed, especially the note which correctly spelled my name. I would highly recommend ordering this as a gift for anyone who could use a bit of sunshine. You can tell you love what you do and send that love out in your box. Thanks for sharing and caring.
Hi Mechele! Yes, we are careful with the names, ;-))). Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your positive experience. So happy!
These were gifts for my sister and she loved them! I'm considering buying the subscription for myself. Laura
Fantastic! Glad she liked them. :-)))))) And we'd love to send it to you as well if you do your own subscription!
