Succulent Studio March 2018 Review
The plants come secured in this cleverly designed box. The general care instructions (keep in lots of sunlight and water when the soil is dry, or every 7-10 days) are printed on the inside of the lid. I also like that each plant has its own little “car seat” for the journey.
Hooray! Succulent Studio has started to include an info card in their boxes! This two-sided card has lots of info about the plants and how to care for them. The illustration style is really cute, too!
Here are my two plants out of the box! They have hay around the roots and are each secured with a few rubber bands. They’re looking good for having traveled so far!
The first plant is a ripple jade that’s about 3 inches wide. That’s on the big side for this small plant subscription! I love the leafy look of this succulent—I’m so used to succulents with kind of odd, spiny, alien shapes that something that looks like the leafy head of a vegetable feels unique! The leaves are still stiff, cool, and thick as is typical of succulents. There’s something elegant about this little plant that I really like. I’ll have to pick up an appropriately chic vessel for it to live in!
This plant has a slightly fuzzy feel to its leaves. It’s almost like a little creature, rather than a plant! The red tone on the tips of the plant reminds me of lipstick—it’s more vibrant scarlet than I would’ve expected from a succulent plant. This little plant is just about 2 inches wide, so it’s perfect for my desk or windowsill. Did you notice the tiny bud at the base of it’s stem? So cute!
The Verdict: I’m so happy that the plants come with an info card so that I can see what they’re called and get to know their needs a little more. (It’s so sweet that the info is phrased in the first person as if the succulent is introducing itself!) I’m amassing quite an adorable collection of tiny plants on my office windowsill. They seem to be doing well—I’ve been following the care instructions that come with the box, and so far, everyone’s hanging in there A-OK! These plants tend to be a little on the expensive side. I’ve seen succulents that are a bit bigger than these ones on sale at big-name hardware stores for cheaper. But the convenience is nice, the fact that they’re organic plants is great, and I do like that they come with care instructions so I know what to do with ’em!
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: After shipping, this box cost $16.50, meaning each plant costs $8.25.
