Succulent Studio April 2018 Review

succulent studios card

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. Previously, they’ve included separate info cards for each plant, but this box just has one card with a URL for where to find care details.

succulent information

On the care site, there are four different plant species listed with illustrations of each one. I’m preeeeetty sure I can tell which plant is which… Wish me luck!

Chocolate Soldier/Panda Bear Plant

This fuzzy succulent has tiny black dots along the edges of its leaves. It’s only about an inch and a half tall right now, and according to the care info, it’s going to take its time growing. But I am loving the fact that apparently it only needs medium light and very little water. Hello, new favorite low maintenance plant!

Coppertone Stonecrop

Oh no! This yellowy plant lost a few leaves during its trip! It seems a bit shaken up in its planter, so I’ll probably re-pot it sooner rather than later. It’s got a nice smoothness to it, and there’s something about it that reminds me of Baby Groot, hehe. It apparently needs intense sunlight but very little care past that. Awesome!

The Verdict: It was a bummer that some of the leaves were falling off the one plant, but it’s not like the plant was in terrible shape! I am LOOOOVING how low maintenance these two plants are. As long as I can get enough light on these babies, I should be A-OK!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. 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.”

Value Breakdown: After shipping, this box cost $16.50, meaning each plant costs $8.25.

  1. I wish these plants were a little more exotic; I’ve already got these succulents and lots of babies. Ive been wanting to sign up for this box but 🤷🏻‍♀️🙄 kinda don’t wanna get more of what I already have.

    • Same thoughts exactly! If I’m gonna pay a premium for having plants delivered I would like to get ones that are harder to come by. I need an incentive:)

  2. It you lay those leaves in a container with some damp soil they will probably sprout roots then you’ll have some baby plants to give away to friends.

    • Lay the leaves on top of the soil just to be completely clear. If you stick succulent cutting in soil they will likely rot but if you just leave them laying on top of the soil they root on their own.

      • I was just going to comment that! I have the same plant and the leaves fall off easily but will sprout new baby plants right in the soil under it!

    • Ooo! I will TOTALLY be trying this, Regina! Thanks for the tip!

  3. Go to home depot succulents that size cost $1.98, I have been reading the reviews for this box and every variety is easily available. Not a good value at all, plus if you buy them at home depot you have a year guarantee.

  4. Fun fact, your Coppertone plant will turn neon orange with enough sunlight. I just got one for my fairy garden about 3 weeks ago and it’s already turning a very bright color with full sun 🙂

    • How cool! I’ll keep an eye on it 🙂
