Succulents Box July 2018
I appreciate that this box comes with information on how to care for the succulents, especially right after I take them out of the box. I don’t have the greenest thumb in the world, so this is helpful info!
While there’s no information about what specific plants I received inside the box, the Succulents Box website lists that these Haworthia species are being featured this month. I think I’ll be able to pick out my three from this line up of four!
The plants come wrapped in tissue paper and surrounded by foam packing peanuts. It’s not the most secure shipping method in the world—there was a good bit of dirt in the paper and inside the box.
Note that the box does have a fragile sticker on it, so hopefully, these plants haven’t been through TOO much chaos on their journey!
I think this is the correct match for the plant listed on the site as Haworthia Cuspidata. This plant is about 2″ tall and 3″ wide above the dirt and looks like it’s about to burst out of its tiny vessel! The leaves of this plant look almost like pickle spears shooting up from beneath the dirt. It’s a very firm, tightly growing succulent, at least in its current living conditions. I wonder if moving it to a more spacious pot will help it relax a bit.
This next plant looks rather similar to the first, but for its leaves being much pointier and spread out. This plant is the smallest of the bunch at just 2″ wide and 1″ tall above its dirt—it’d look SO cute sitting on the foot of my office computer monitor, but I do NOT think it would thrive there!!!
Haworthia African Pearl
The final plant is what I think is the Haworthia African Pearl. At first, I thought the white designs were just stripes, but they seem to be very small ridges that cover the green leaves of this long-reaching plant. This one is the middle sibling of this box, measuring in at 1.5″ tall and 2″ wide on top of the dirt. I love how different and dramatic it is!
The Verdict: I think plant subscriptions are so much fun, but the price breakdown after shipping for these babies is a little more expensive than what I might expect at a local hardware store’s greenhouse department. I do wish the size of the plants was a bit more consistent, and that they provided more specific information about each plant in the box, rather than just listing the plant types on their website. If you don’t have easy access to succulents, I could see this being a fun way to collect them! It’d also make a cute housewarming gift or care package for someone!
To Wrap Up:
Can I still get this box if I sign up today?: Yes! Though your assortment may look slightly different, depending on how many plants you choose.
Value Breakdown: This three plant box cost $16.50 + $7.85 shipping to PA, or $24.35 total. That means each plant cost an average of $8.12 after shipping.
