Succulent Studio May 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. It looks like the packaging has been redesigned to be even more environmentally friendly! The new pot designs are also awesome because you can plant them directly into their new home, providing less shock to your little baby succulents.
Always included are two cards with an illustration of our plant on one side and info on the back!
Tiscalatengo Gorge Sedum
Look at this little thing! So cute. I tend to really adore rosette shaped succulents and though this one is wee tiny, they tend to grow in trailing clumps and as they mature they actually get a slightly blueish powdery coating to the leaves, which gives them this amazing blue+green palette. If you baby this little succulent enough, it will reward you with long stems tipped with tiny blossoms.
Kalanchoe 'Lavender Scallops'
I used to have one of these plants but it died when I was away for a trip and it was sadly overwatered by a friend who was just trying to help. I love collecting pink plants and the dark purple/pink leaf tips on this one are stunning. I think one reason they stand out so beautifully is that the leaves are variegated, and have white edges leading to the pink which makes it really POP. This is another succulent that will happily gift you beautiful pinkish/red bell-shaped flowers borne on long graceful stems if well cared for.
The Verdict: I am very happy with the variety of succulents included this month and the condition that they arrived in. One of the most amazing things about succulents is the crazy amount of colors and shapes found within this family of plants. I love that we received a pink tinted plant and also one that will eventually lean blue. I look forward to caring for them and hopefully coaxing some tiny little blooms this summer. As usual, you will certainly get larger plants for the $$$ at a local plant store, but if you are looking for something more unique or maybe don't have access to a decent shop in your area, this is an inexpensive subscription that is really fun!
