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

The Cactique answered...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: 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...

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!

I don't know how anyone could possibly ever have anything slightly negative to say about this subscription. It is so obvious they put so much genuine care into every single package. Like literally the perfectly careful packaging alone is probably so time consuming to prepare. I just can tell they are very thoughtful of their customers and it is much appreciated. I chose this subscription over the others because I was excited about the cute, specialty pottery that came with each one and others were not offering that, but holy moly, I did not expect to also receive the CUTEST, tiniest cacti that I have ever seen in my entire life!! I have only been doing this for two months and these two little plants make me so happy every time I look at them! My boyfriend is like...eventually you will have to stop because we won't have anywhere else to put them but I will just keep adding more shelves for the rest of my life!! I love them so much haha I feel like this review might seem a little extra but they seriously are just such delightful little plants and the thoughtfulness of the sellers I felt really needed to be recognized because it really stood out to me compared to other products. And I am very happy to support a lovely, small business like this. And the extra little bonus gift it so fun, too!! This cactus pen is awesome so thank you so much! Keep...

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.

The Cactique said...Mar 14, 2022

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!

I just received my 3rd (final) box and couldn’t be more pleased with all 3. Kim and Rick I truly appreciate the time and effort you put in to making each months box special. The handwriting note is an added bonus! All the pots are adorable and my plants are happy and healthy. I have to thank my daughter for such a wonderful gift and thank you for bringing a little sunshine into my life 🌞

What a lovely box! The level of thought and detail put into this curation is absolutely stunning. You can tell, right as you open it, it has been packed with love and consideration. All of the items including the literature, were all layered strategically and presented with easy to follow instructions. Resulting in a perfect little arrangement.
Giving either as gift to yourself and/or to a friend/family member, it will not disappoint.
Thank you so much, Kim & Rick!
