Succulent Studio April 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. 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.
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!
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.
