Succulent Studio October 2018 Box Review

succulent studio how plants are packaged

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!

Each individual plant is packaged in a little puff of hay, which is secured with several rubber bands to hold them in place.

Aeonium Suncup 

I was worried that this plant was looking kind of unhealthy when I unpacked it, but I think that’s just the nature of the thin, yellowy leaves. I love that this plant does best in shadier, cooler conditions. It might be happy living on one of the shadier windowsills in my home. Yay for low-maintenance house plants!

Ghost Plant

OoooOOOOooo! This is the perfect pick for Halloween season! This green plant has stiffer, smooth leaves with moments of pretty purplish-pink. I don’t know that I have any really well-draining soil for this plant, so I’ll have to pick some up. It doesn’t have any mention of what kind of light the plant likes, but I’ll want to be careful that I’m giving it as much water as it needs to stay perky!

The Verdict: As usual, these plants were super cute (neither one was more than 2 inches tall), but I do worry that I’m spending more than I have to, given I have a lot of affordable garden centers near me. I could probably find slightly bigger plants for less than these two wind up being, but I do appreciate how they’re grown and the fun and surprise of getting this box in the mail! I say this a lot, but I think it’d make a fun gift for someone moving into a new home, a newlywed, or a college student looking to dress up their dorm room.

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.”
