Q: I just subscribed and I got the mailbox and it says I’m I’m not getting billed until the end of this month will I be getting the June box?Asked by Christina S., June 2021

The Cactique answered...June 2021

Hi Christina,
You signed up on May 30, so you were charged then and were shipped our May box. Your subscription is active, so on June 29/30, it will renew automatically and we will ship your June box out shortly after that. Sorry it's a bit confusing, the end of the month orders can seem that way. Feel free to e-mail us directly if you need more specifics or have other questions. Thanks!

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!

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!!

The Cactique said...Jan 28, 2021

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!

The Cactique said...Jun 01, 2021

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

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!

Wow! Just wow! A+ from me!

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!

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.

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!!!!!!

The Cactique said...Jan 09, 2021

Thanks Shelly! We remember discussing that with your daughter and we were happy to help!

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!
