Succulent Subscription Box


Our May box featuring Kalanchoe Flapjacks Succulent, Haworthia African Pearls, Echeveria Perle Von Nurnberg, Cotyledon Tomentosa Bear Paw, and Tillandsia Fuchsii

1. Kalanchoe Flapjacks Succulent


 Kalanchoe Thyrsiflora, also called Paddle Plant, is an interesting succulent with broad flat paddle-shaped leaves that stack on of each other like pancakes. In winter or under full sun, the tips of the leaves turn deep red, which gives the plant another fun nickname "Red Pancake".

 Mature Kalanchoe Paddle Plant can grow up to 2.5 feet in height, and produce impressive tall bloom stalks of fragrant yellow flowers.

 Full Sun.

 Porous and well-drained.

 Water thoroughly only when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely.

 Feed once per month during the growing season.

 Keep out of reach of pets and small children because this plant is toxic when ingested.

2. Haworthia African Pearls


 Haworthia Reinwardtii, so-called "African Pearls", is one of the most striking Haworthia with narrow pointy leaves marked with bumpy, raised white spotty bands.

 The tightly packed leaves are arranged in a spiral pattern, forming columnar rosettes up to 8 inches tall. Haworthia Reinwardtii produces offsets freely to form a mat.

 In spring, the mature rosettes produce white flowers on thin, long stems.

 Bright light, but not direct sunlight.

 Use a cactus mix or very fast-draining potting soil mixed with sand.

 Water deeply when soil is dry and let water drain out completely.

3. Echeveria Perle Von Nurnberg


 This succulent is a beautifully colored Echeveria Perle Von Nurnberg. The plant is a hybrid of E. Gibbiflora v. Metallica and E. Potosina.

 These plants are excellent for windowsill culture or as color accents in rock gardens or dish gardens. These make super colorful favors. Create your own container garden or centerpiece using the very popular succulents or buy in bulk to use these as wedding or party favors.


 Summer into Fall.

 Full Sun, Partial Sun, bright light with ample airflow.

 Porous soil with adequate drainage.

 Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Avoid letting water sit for too long in the rosette to prevent rot and fungal diseases.

 Protect from frost.

 Dead leaves should be removed from the plant as soon as possible to ward off pests.

 Generally non-toxic to humans and animals

4. Cotyledon Tomentosa Bear Paw


 Cotyledon tomentosa subsp. ladismithiensis, native to South Africa, is also known as Cotyledon Bear Paw or Bear’s Paw. It is a succulent shrublet up to 12 inches (30 cm) tall. It is densely branched and covered with fine tiny white hairs, giving it a velvety look. The leaves are up to 2 inches (5 cm) long, fleshy, yellow-green, sometimes with reddish tips. These leaves usually have from 1 to 3 apical teeth, resembling the "bear claws".

 Cotyledon Bear's Paw produces clusters of yellow to orange-red bell-shaped flowers in late spring.

 Porous soil with adequate drainage.

 Bright light and ample airflow.

 Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch then let drain completely.

 Can be mildly toxic to pets and humans.

5. Tillandsia Fuchsii


 Tillandsia Fuchsii, native to Mexico and Guatemala, is a delicate air plant with tiny thread-like leaf blades. These leaves are silvery pale green; the flowers are vibrant violet when in bloom. After the plant blooms, it produces offsets and starts to form a clump. Fuchsii usually grows symmetrically to form a perfect sphere.

 Bright light.

 No soil is needed. Sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles & bark chip can be used instead of soil.

 Mist your Fuchsii a few times per week. You can also soak the plant in a bowl of water for a minimum of an hour every 1 or 2 weeks (because the fine leaf blades might not absorb enough water from misting). Give it a little shake off afterwards to eliminate excess water and make sure water doesn't collect in the bottom leaves to prevent rot.
