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

The Cactique answered...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...

Q: Do your information and care cards include anything about toxicity to pets?Asked by Jill M., November 2021

The Cactique answered...November 2021

Hi Jill, that's a good question. As a general rule, pets should be kept away from plants, especially if they have a chance of ingesting it. We do provide the names of the plants on our care cards so people can do research on each particular plant and determine for themselves. We also have two dogs and two cats. ;-)

Q: What day of the month should I order so that the first box comes on or before January 11?Asked by Molly M., November 2021

The Cactique answered...November 2021

Boxes ship within 3-5 business days of your order. We ship USPS Priority Mail, 2- to 3-day shipping. Hopefully that gives you a good general idea for your situation.

Q: Does every box contain at least one ccactus?Asked by Molly M., November 2021

The Cactique answered...November 2021

Ideally, that's what we'd like! But there are many more succulent varieties than cacti varieties, so some months we do two succulents instead. By request, we can do substitutions, but it's not preferred because we always try to choose the "perfect" match each month of two plants for a few different reasons such as hardiness or temperature-related or simply aesthetics.

This is THE perfect box! Thoughtfully, carefully and meticulously packaged. Fast shipping. The plants (all 3) were already professionally planted in a very elegant dark grey pot - no fumbling on my part getting dirt everywhere. And best of all, LOTS of details about the plants and instructions on care and maintenance. Cute and functional extras as well as hand-written notes. SO happy with this box!

I absolutely love this box. Usually I would try a box for a month or two to see what they really do and if its worth the money. This one is for sure worth the money because you can see the time and care they put into their product. I lovelove love my new plants *on the right* and even had enough moss and pebbles to replant my new cactus. *on the left* It also comes in a vase already so you don't have to worry about planting it. There is instructions for everything so you are never lost and they make sure you dont over water the plant when you get it.. They have fueled my new obsession and will for sure be sticking with it. I love they also add something special like a tote and omg is that socks I see the month! Yessss!!

Thanks so much for posting your review, Alicia! And we are so happy you like the box! Your own cactus paired with ours look perfect together! And yes, socks are coming up!

How cute is this box!? I loved that they sent a hand written thank-you note. It made me feel so valued! The plants were already potted and arrived nice and secure. It came with extra rocks and some little decor items. A care card was included with a link to a Spotify playlist that I enjoyed. It also came with a little coin purse. Personally I would have preferred something more pertaining to succulents/plants/gardening, but I really just looked at it as a nice little extra. Overall I’m very satisfied with this box!

Thanks Amanda! And so glad you liked our Spotify playlist!!! Thanks for letting us know about that!

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 do not lie: This sub truly is that darling from the shipping box to the plants themselves. And, the quality and thoughtfulness of the packing are simply superb. Seriously, not a grain of potting soil was displaced in my order. 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. As well, I think this would make for an awesome gift for just about anyone, even those with brown thumbs.

My first Cactique box and I am not disappointed! Incredible packaging. Creative theme. User friendly identification and care card. Quality succulents. And as a cherry on top - a "dont be a prick" towel! it just doesnt get better than this! Cheers to the next one being equally excellent! p.s. - as my first box, I also received a personal handwritten note from Kim and Rick. Now thats service! Keep up the great work!

The Cactique said...May 04, 2021

Thanks, Jes! Glad you liked everything and the towel as well! More to come!

Just a beautiful little plants, safely packaged and ready to go! I got this as a gift for myself, but I'm thinking hard of other people who might need more plant friends. Loved the little (handwritten!) welcome card and accessories and instructions. It also came with an apology that the box was insufficiently adorable, but I disagree.

The Cactique said...Mar 31, 2021

Oh, good! Thank you, Anne. You'll see the "right" box next time too! So glad you like it!

The July box was my first, and I absolutely loved it! The plants are just gorgeous, and the pot is adorable. The other two items - the candle and pin - are thoughtfully curated and will be put to good use. My box arrived quickly, and I was impressed by how carefully packaged everything was. The personal, handwritten note thanking me for my first order was a very nice touch too.
I couldn't be happier with The Cactique! I just sneaked a peak at August, and I'm really looking forward to it!

The Cactique said...Aug 02, 2021

Thanks, Lynn!! Glad you liked that month, and glad you like the upcoming August one too! It's one of my personal favorites, even though we like them all.

Wonderful Box!

I LOVE this box! My first box was for May 2021 and it far exceeded my expectations. It came quickly and was packaged very well. I received a nice hand written welcome note and information on my succulents. The pot is adorable and of high quality. The plants were professionally planted and not damaged at all during shipping. It also came with extra stones, moss, and cute little lady bugs to use to decorate around the plants. Also included in the May box was a very pretty coin purse. I am really happy with the box and look forward to future boxes.
