Succulent Studio January 2019 Box Review

The plants ship inside a cleverly designed cardboard box, which is intended to hold them safely in place during their journey. Then, each individual plant is packaged in a little puff of hay, which is secured with several rubber bands to hold them in place.

This little plant is about 2 inches tall from the dirt to the top of its tallest leaf. It’s cute how the leaves are thick and kind of triangular. Most Succulent Studio plants I’ve gotten in the past do grow really well, but according to the card that comes with this star cactus, this species stays kind of small. I might plant it in a wide bowl-shaped pot of succulents I have—it has some room that a tiny plant like this could be good for!

Haha, I love the names of some of these plants! This plant only needs to be watered once a month in winter, which is awesome for my current plant skills. This plant’s leaves have a fuzzy quality to them that I think is really cute, too.

The Verdict: I really like the fun and surprise of getting plants each month, and in my experience, the plants are pretty hearty and grow nicely, even in the gray midwest environment I’ve been raising them in! The only struggle is paying around $8.00 per very small plant when I could get something similar (maybe even in a prettier vessel) for less than that at my local plant store. If you don’t have a reliable place to buy plants nearby, though, this could be a fun way to grow your collection!

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes. According to their site:

  1. Agreed – it looks like the haworthia has a scale infestation. Rubbing alcohol on a q-tip will help remove it. It’ll spread easily to other plants.

  2. They’re so cute and tiny!

  3. The brown stuff on your top plant looks like it could be scale. If it doesn’t rinse off, it might be scale which can infect other plants and eventually kill them. Just a heads up.

    • If it is scale I have had success with wiping the plants with a paper towel soaked in water and dish soap.
