Succulents Box is a subscription box that delivers a new selection of succulent plants to your door every month.
Depending on the plan you choose, each box will include 1-4 succulent plants in their original 2-inch pots with soil. A new variety is hand-selected every month, so you’ll never receive two of the same species in one box. Succulents are known for their amazing ability to thrive in poor soils and low-water conditions, making them a great choice for anyone new to houseplants.
Disclosure: Box was received for review purposes. Post may contain affiliate links.
Subscriptions are $5/month for 1 plant, $10/month for 2, $15/month for 3, and $20/month for 4. Discounts are available on multi-month subscriptions. — For a limited time, you can save 25% on your first month with coupon code “FIRSTBOX“!
Let’s see what’s in my June 2019 Succulents Box!
Everything was shipped in a long white box sealed with custom Succulents Box tape.
A peek inside! — I received the 4-plant box for review.
An enclosed card was printed with basic care instructions for all of the plants, including how much sunlight they’ll need and how often to give them water.
Four individual cards revealed the names of each plant in June’s box, as well as photos so you knew which one was which.
Each plant was securely encased in bubble wrap to protect it in transit.
Tiger Tooth (Aloe Juvenna)
First up was Tiger Tooth — a small succulent native to Kenya that grows upright up to 12 inches tall and starts branching from the base of the stem. Its bright green leaves have toothy margins (hence the name ‘Tiger Tooth’) and creamy white spots all over. When given enough sunlight, the leaves can turn red or brown and it can produce salmon pink or orange red flowers with green tips. (I should point out that I found that information on the Succulents Box website, which gives plenty of info & care instructions on every plant they ship.)
Haworthia (Cymbiformis Var. Obtusa)
Next was Haworthia, a bright green plant characterized by dense rosettes that can grow up to 6 inches in diameter, forming round clumps. The leaves are said to look a bit like molded glass, but they kinda remind me of tiny half-deflated(?) watermelons. 😉 Once the plant reaches around 8 inches in size, it may produce white to very pale pink flowers with brownish-green veins.
This shiny fellow here can grow up to 6 inches tall and 6 inches in diameter. It has waxy green & brownish-red leaves that surround a tiny rosette in the center. Its flowers are said to be bell-shaped and orange in color.
Blue Atoll (Echeveria)
The final plant was a blue atoll — an evergreen succulent forming a pretty rosette packed with fleshy, blue-green leaves. In the Spring, it can grow 8 inch tall stems which will bear small orange & yellow flowers.
My house is pretty much a graveyard for houseplants, so I’m hoping I’ll have better luck with these cute little guys from Succulents Box! 😉 I was honestly a bit skeptical about the condition live plants would be in after traveling through the postal service, but was pleasantly surprised by how great they all looked upon arrival. I’m already planning to buy larger pots and cactus soil (I did some research!) to replant my new friends. 😀 — Remember, for a limited time, you can save 25% on your first month with coupon code “FIRSTBOX“!
