Miroja is a subscription box that focuses on minimalist design and plants! They have several different subscription options, and I am reviewing the Small Surprise Gift Box – it includes one plant, and one home item.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

This box includes some fragile cargo, so I’m happy to report that it was packaged very well!

This box comes with a card that gives you details on where to get plant care instructions. And details on how to set up your plant:

Now, onto the items!

Time to put together the plant! First, you get a ceramic planter.

I love the minimalist design of this little planter – and it’s exactly the type of style I was expecting from this subscription.

First, add these drainage rocks to your planter.

What a cute little succulent!

Miroja also includes extra soil if you need it.

Beetle + Bones Apothecary Floral Bath Tea – Value $10

This bath tea/bath salt blend can be used with or without a tea bag, (I opted without). It was relaxing and smelled lovely! A+ bath salts!

Verdict: This box cost $29.99, and I received everything I needed for a tiny succulent planter, plus some lovely bath salts. The quality of the items is great, and I love the minimalist vibe, but since the bath salts are $10, are the succulent + planter worth $20? I’m pretty sure I could get a similar plant at Trader Joes or Whole Foods for $10 or less.

To sum up, this is not a subscription for anyone seeking a good retail value. However, as someone who often sends flowers online knowing very well that I could get them for much less at my local grocery store, I can acknowledge that there is a premium price on sending plants in the mail. If you’re OK with that extra cost, I think you will like this subscription.

What do you think of Miroja?

  1. One thing I have noticed about the succulents available for cheap at places like Home Depot is that they are not supplied with the proper potting material or they’ll put 2-3 plants with different care requirements in the same planter. I killed a bunch of them before I figured that out. They do OK for a few weeks. But then they die.

    I had Miroja (the $50/month version) for awhile and my plants from there are doing much better. I don’t know if it equals the full cost difference, but based on my experience, the Miroja plants were better equipped to survive long-term.

    • That’s good to know! So far my little plant is doing well, too!
