Succulent Studio January 2018 Review
This is my first succulent studio box, and I am so excited! Let’s meet my new plants:
The plants come secured in this cleverly designed box. The care instructions (keep in lots of sunlight and water when soil is dry, or every 7-10 days) are printed on the inside of the lid, which is nice—no extra papers to worry about!
Here they are!
Hens and Chicks Plant
There’s no messaging about the plants themselves in the box, so I’m just guessing at the species of succulent. If I’m way off, please let me know! This bitty bundle of leaves is only about an inch wide—it’s a tiny baby! It almost looks like a little plant pom-pom, haha. I love the wine-hued tips of the sage-green leaves. Beneath the protective hay on top is about 2 inches worth of soil, in which the plant is rooted.
Again, I’m guessing here, but I think this is some kind of echeveria plant. This one is so pretty! It’s like a very sturdy, pale-green rosette. The leaves are cool and a tiny bit rubbery, and they share the wine-tint of the last plant. This little one is just slightly larger than its buddy—it’s about 2 inches wide—but shares the same soil-under-hay packaging.
The Verdict: I love these teeny plants! They’re so darn cute. I would’ve liked more information about which ones I received, but I appreciate the care instructions (and that they’re printed on the box lid to eliminate more waste). I’m a fan of tiny things, so I’m excited to try and find some charming little vessels to transplant these babies into. Maybe some thrift store juice glasses or tea/espresso cups?
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? It’s not clear whether everyone gets the same plants, or something different, based on what’s available. Sign up here and see which plant babies you get!
Value Breakdown: After shipping, this box cost $16.50, meaning each plant costs $8.25. While I’ve gotten larger individual plants for that amount, I’ve usually found them at chain hardware stores, where I’m unsure of the details of the growing process. It’s possible that the organic aspect makes the higher price point reasonable. If you have lots of experience with succulent plants, please comment about what YOU think about the value! I’d be interested to hear your take 🙂
