Succulent Studio September 2018 Box Review
The plants ship inside a cleverly designed cardboard box, which is intended to hold them safely in place during their journey. What plants you get differ month to month, based on what’s ready to go!
Tiger Tooth Aloe
The first plant I unpacked was this bitty aloe plant. It’s only about 2 inches wide, and it looks like a spikier aloe, with little teeth lining its slightly reddish arms. I’m a little worried about this plant, as the third bullet of its care instructions makes it sound a bit finicky. It’s hard to manage light in Pittsburgh, where the weather/sunlight streaming through my window can change dramatically from hour to hour. Fingers crossed it hangs in there!
Dwarf Jade Plant
I love the big friendly spoon-shaped leaves of this plant! It seems like a pretty simple plant to care for, too, especially in winter. It’s only about 2 inches tall, but I already love it. I have a few small pots that will make a nice home for this plant.
The Verdict: The price is the only tricky thing about this subscription since I personally have access to less expensive plants at the same quality level at local shops near me. Via this subscription, each plant costs about $8.00, which is pretty steep for such small plants (especially considering that they don’t come in real pots—just little plastic containers). I do love the presentation, though. I feel like this subscription is such a fantastic pick for a housewarming gift, a college care package, or a gift for plant-loving newlyweds. I’m happy to put the extra dollars towards a unique gift that will really wow friends or loved ones, but it might not be as realistic to buy for myself month after month when I have other local plant options available.
