Succulent Studio March 2018 Review
The plants ship inside a cleverly designed cardboard box, which holds them safely in place during their journey. 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. Info cards for each specific plant are tucked into a pocket in the front. And each individual plant is hugged by a layer of hay held in place with rubber bands to keep its soil from spilling out.
This cute plant is about 1.5″ tall right now. It’s exactly the shape and color that come to mind when I think about succulent plants. Its pretty sage-colored leaves, which are thick, smooth, and cool, apparently get redder around the ends as they soak up sunlight. It’s hard to imagine this bitty plant with the “cascading” flowers the info card describes, but I’m eager to see what some dry, sunny conditions can bring forth out of it!
Tigers are my favorite animal, so I already feel some special kinship with this 2″ tall plant. Its leaves have a pointy shape and thickness that reminds me of aloe leaves, except these are trimmed in spines. But don’t worry, the spines aren’t sharp in the least. They remind me more of house cat whiskers than they do teeth!
The Verdict: While I feel like I could probably get similarly sized plants for slightly less at the big chain hardware/garden stores near me, I do love the surprise of seeing two new plant babies show up at my doorstep each month. I feel like this subscription would be a great gift—maybe a college care package or a present for someone moving into their first home.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? According to their site, “Every month, [Succulent Studios picks] 2 plants to send to our subscribers. If you subscribe any time in that month, you will receive that month’s plants.” So you should be able to nab these plants if you order by the end of the month!
Value Breakdown: After shipping, this box cost $16.50, meaning each plant costs $8.25.
