The Sill Medium Plant Box Review June 2020
The plant was very carefully packaged, just like always. It arrived in a super tall box! I was so excited to see what was inside.
The base of the plant was covered by a protective organic material sheet (straw?) and a rubber band to keep the dirt in the pot.
I did not receive an info packet this month.

FYI: This plant arrived about 14 inches tall inside the planter and about 11 inches across. The planter alone measures about 6 inches tall.
What a cutie! Although she didn’t quite need the height this box provided (I thought they had sent me a baby giraffe when I saw how tall the box was) I am glad he Sill team decided to err on the side of giving her more headspace. Alocasia always feel so tropical to me and their needs are similar: bright light and humidity. This is a summer sort of plant for sure. I love the detailed arrowhead-shaped leaves with their white veins and beautifully purple patterned undersides. The stems are delicate and arching, and although I did have one that was so bent I had to trim off the leaf, most arrived in great condition, charmingly nodding at me as I examined my new arrival.
Our plant arrived inside an inner plastic pot that was perfectly nestled inside the ceramic pot. I actually really appreciate this because most of the pots from The Sill do not have drainage holes and this allows me to monitor the hydration levels of my plants closer and helps me make sure they aren’t sitting in too much water.
The Verdict: This was my first delivery from the medium The Sill subscription option and I think I prefer this to the smaller one. I love that there is a larger plant, larger pot, and free shipping. For some reason, I am one of those people who totally feel like I get a better deal when I don’t have to pay for shipping! The plant itself arrived beautiful and healthy, and I actually didn’t have anything like it in my home already, which is impressive since I have 50+ in my space right now. The overall size difference here is certainly noticeable, so if you are willing to spend a little more on your Sill subscription, the newer larger size is a little more pricy, but totally justifies the minor added cost, especially since shipping is free. Also, we all can agree that The Sill is pricy, but I have used it to deliver plants to friends and loved ones multiple times in the last few months instead of even pricier flowers, so it might be a good option for anyone even if you aren’t into the idea of a sub.
To Wrap Up:
