Succulent Studio August 2018 Review
The plants ship inside a cleverly designed cardboard box, which is intended to hold them safely in place during their journey. Last month was the first time my plants didn’t arrive safe and sound in their cardboard car seats, and the company sent me replacements right away. This month, things are looking secure, as usual!
In the past, Succulent Studio has given their customers some general plant care instructions via their site/email. This month was the first time I received tips on unboxing, re-potting, and troubleshooting my succulents via a physical card in the box. I think this is so handy to have! I can keep it near the shelf where my succulent collection lives for quick reference.
There’s also a two-sided card that gives more detailed information tailored to the plants I received.
Happy Young Lady
What a name! This plant looks a bit like green beans shooting out of the ground, haha. The sprout is a little over 2″ tall, which is on the bigger side for this subscription. Apparently, this plant has the ability to grow bell-shaped orange flowers in the summer—I’m going to do my best to keep my Happy Young Lady happy so that she can strut her stuff!
This bitty little plant is the exact opposite as the Happy Young Lady, size-wise. It’s barely out of the ground! The tiny pinkish leaves are definitely cute, though. I hope I can help this little guy flourish!
The Verdict: The only qualm I have with this subscription is how small the plants typically are for the price. I’m in an area where I can find succulents that are around the same size as these, if not slightly bigger, at a plant store or the garden department of a chain hardware store for the same price or less. I don’t know whether those plants have the same organic upbringing that these ones do, of course. But I do wish they were just a tiny bit bigger to make the cost per plant feel more worth it. I’m loving all of the plant info though!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes. 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.”
