Questions

1

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

The Cactique answered...March 2021

Hi Esther,
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

The Cactique answered...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

The Cactique answered...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

The Cactique answered...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!

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!!

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!

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.

I am so pleased with this subscription box! I purchased a year subscription for my 19-year-old daughter. This company is a little more expensive than the ones I compared it to, however, it is well worth the difference! The cacti come pre-planted and VERY well wrapped. It comes with amazing directions, a handwritten note, and a few little "extras." This month a beautiful bag, stickers, and Mexican beach pebbles to add to the pot. ALSO...we over watered our first arrivals by mistake. My daughter reached out to the company and they were AMAZING! They gave her advice and replaced the one dead one for free!!! I highly recommend this company and appreciate their care and personal touches!!!!!!

This box is wonderful! I love the plants included, and they always look so beautifully and professionally planted and decorated. The information cards are so useful, and the plants are always carefully packaged. I'm temporarily canceling my subscription but only because I might be moving soon. As soon as I'm able to, I'm going to start it up again because I've been loving this subscription!!

I LOVE this subscription box! The plants are packaged with care and very high quality. I love all the personal touches (especially the hand written card). I just wish Cratejoy would provide an option to pause your membership or simply skip a month rather than cancelling (an every other month would be great). A++++++

Thanks, Melissa! We're very happy (and grateful) that you like it! And as a matter of fact, Cratejoy does allow you to skip months. We'll contact you via e-mail with further details.
