Concrete Leaf

This was probably one of my least favorite succulents I have ever seen but as I look it up, it matures kind of pretty. I did find it interesting that it is a part of the dwarf succulent species. I am excited to see how this plant will mature.

Square Rosettes

When it comes to succulents, my favorites are the colorful and the tall ones. I instantly favored this one in this month’s box. It is such a pretty plant and came in pretty tall. The crassula moonglow can grow to be about 8 inches tall! When matured, the plant reminds me of a Jenga tower. It can even flower after a few years during the winter and spring months.

I liked this plant when I saw it; the purple is so vibrant and pretty. But when I looked it up to learn more about the plant, I noticed the plants were more pink. I am not sure if it is because of the season or the age, but am hoping they mature pink like they do online.

Karoo Rose

This plant is pretty, with a tint of pink on the leaves. When it matures, the plant will flower a big yellow flower; sometimes up to three flowers.

The Verdict: There are hundreds of succulents out there; I look forward to this box every month to explore the different kinds I receive. This month had some great plants, all of which I look forward to seeing bloom, mature and flower.

I am a mother of 2 going on 3 soon and enjoy the little things in life, especially in surprise form! Monthly subscription boxes give me that surprise every time I see the mailman delivering them! My favorite boxes include beauty boxes, lifestyle boxes and anything pregnancy-related boxes; my all time favorite is my FabFitFun subscription.

  1. I think you got the last 2 plant pictures and plant cards mixed up. The purplish one is the anacampseros.

    • That is correct! The title of the plants are correct but the images are mixed up! I will get it corrected!
      Thank you!

  2. Yes, I would love to see a post a few months after to see how they are growing too! Thank you.

    • Hi Flora!

      I will see of i can do an update in the summer when they are thriving!!

      • Awesome, thanks! I have a black thumb but I love seeing others have success in gardening.

      • I wish I could I have these and airplants withou killing them. I hardly get some direct sunlight where i am but nope.

  3. I would be interested in seeing what you do with all of these succulents. Do you put them all in one pot? Do you have a big garden with them spread out? Do you have them in small pots all over your home? Just curious to see what to do with all of these from month to month. Thank you!

    • Hi Dawn!

      I started keeping them in the house but no matter where I moved them, the sun wasn’t hitting them just right and two ended up dying! The area I live in and my home blocks the sun, so I can put them directly on my porch and my dog outside roams and digs so I cannot put them in the back. After I lost the second plant, I reached out to my sister who lives in the country with big open areas all around her house. She tends and cares for the plant and plans on putting them in a potter in the summer so they can thrive. I visit the plants regularly and they are doing well. I really cant wait until spring/summer when they do better!

    • I’ve responded to you a couple of times, hopefully it’ll come up because when I copy/paste the response its duplicated 🤔

      • Got it thank you!! 🙂 Glad you were able to find a solution!
