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.

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!

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.

I have had three months of plants so far and every single one has been beautiful and interesting. One plant out of all of them (approximately 6 total) bit the dust but that was because I overwatered it to the point of root rot and should have known better, but all the others are healthy as can be. The pots are so cute too. Great box and I'll be continuing my subscription for the foreseeable future!

The Cactique said...Sep 19, 2021

Thanks, Molly! Glad to hear they're doing well and so glad you like your subscription!

Love this box! 100% recommend

The cactii and arrangement are beautiful! Care instructions and information are included in the box as well and are simple to follow. As a person without a green thumb and the ability to accidentally kill plants, the instructions were easy to follow and my cactii are still thriving.

That's great to hear, Aidan! Thank you for taking the time to let us know!

How could I have known that I would fall in love with a cactus subscription? I’m four months in and never want to be without the Cactique in my life! Now, this may sound a bit dramatic, but it’s all true. Before I signed up with this subscription, I tried a few monthly succulent boxes. Both arrived damaged and the plants eventually died. You may think succulents are easy to care for and impossible to kill, but I managed to do destroy several. Ultimately, I think the plants were just unhealthy to begin with. Now, imagine going from that to pure, heavenly cactus/succulent combinations. (Again, not being dramatic.) The Cactique has become one of my all time favorite subscriptions. I’ll try to hit just a few highlights. Each month you will receive an expertly packed/shipped cactus and succulent plant in a beautiful pot with its own saucer. The colors are neutral and will fit into almost any interior. The plants themselves are healthy, hearty, and happy. And if that wasn’t enough, each month you will receive an extra cactus related gift such as a candle, coin purse, or bracelet. Now, onto the extra special part: the owners of this business are AMAZING! Kim and Rick are the embodiment of kindness and fantastic customer service. I’ve had to contact the shop about a billing mistake that I made and Rick was on it within hours of sending the question. Kim writes the best, personalized cards. It’s just that extra touch...

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.
