Q: Since these are desert plants, would they be ok if i kept them in the bathroom which can get steamy during baths, etc. Would the occasional humidity be a problem? Asked by Esther G., March 2021
Yes, these plants should be perfectly fine with a little humidity now and then. Some of the greenhouses are quite humid as well. Just make sure that they get their light, maybe through a window sill or something.
Q: I'm not very educated on succulents, but are they good for both indoors and outdoors?Asked by Jennifer H., February 2021
They are! But it depends on the weather. They are very good in moderate outdoor temperatures, just nothing too extreme. For example, they love sunshine, but they don't like to get scorched, and they're good with cold too, but they certainly don't like to freeze. Indoors, they like to be on a window sill where they receive sunlight. "Filtered" light is good. You can e-mail us if you like and we can discuss more specific weather conditions to your area.
Q: You don't glue the rocks in or anything do you with the plant Asked by Sam P., February 2021
No, we would never do that. We pack the rocks separately so you can put them in yourself. Much better this way!
Q: Does it come with the pot?Asked by Jennifer D., February 2021
It sure does! Matter of fact, it's pre-potted, so we do the potting. Also included is the saucer and top dressing.
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!
It gives us great joy to know that you liked it! Thank you!
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!
Beautifully made and wonderfully curated. Our family felt so special in receiving The Cactique monthly cactus. They truly add love and positive energy in each delivery. I have had over 20 subscriptions for a variety of products and The Cactique ranks top 3. I highly recommend.
Wow, that's such a nice thing for you to say. We feel so honored to make the top 3! Thank you, Simone!!!
Absolutely gorgeous packaging and beautiful plants and pot (and I know for a fact that the pot is worth more than the price of the entire box) . Dipped my toe into subscription boxes with this as a three month subscription. One box later and I know I'm officially hooked.
Nice...thank you, Anna! We are so very happy that we made you happy...mission accomplished!
Thoughtfully prepared and personal touches were exceptional!
Thanks, Tami! Very nice of you to leave a review. :-)
Perfect little intro cactus - I love it and can't wait for more!
Came with instructions and fun little extras. Worth it!
Great, Niki! And since it's an intro for you, if you have any questions, let us know!
Such a great box! The outdoor temp in my town was around 30 degrees Fahrenheit when I received the box, and I was so relieved and pleased to see in the written card that a heat pack had been added free of charge to help my poor succulents get through the trip and the couple of hours on my porch! They made the trip with a bump or two from the postal service, but a little extra TLC was all they needed, and they are so lovely now!
So happy with this one, I think it will end up gifted to a friend or two in the near future!
We are so glad it made it safely, Spencer! Thank you for letting us know and for the nice comments!
I just received the first month and it exceeded my expectations!! The plants are adorable and healthy! I would highly recommend The Cactique either as a gift for someone or yourself. I smile every time I look at my plants!
We love that you smile every time you look at your plants! Thank you Amanda for the nice review!
This is my favorite subscription box. I subscribed to the three month box and liked it so much, I renewed for another three months. I'm super impressed with the quality of plants I receive, the care that's gone into packing them and every month, they write a sweet note. I'm cultivating quite a collection of plants and expect to continue this one.
Wow, thank you for that, and for renewing. :-) We look forward to adding to your collection!
Customer service was wonderful and the box was adorable.
Thank you, Terra!!!
