  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most 2" plants are shipped in their original plastic pot with soil. Fragile and big 4" plants are shipped bareroot to ensure their safety. When opening your package, some soil may be loose in the box. Plant orders are shipped within 3-5 days depending on availability of the plant. We ship our plants Monday through Friday, all twelve months of the year! If you need your order urgently, please message us so we can upgrade your shipping (additional cost applied). Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging. We do not ship outside of the continental United States.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Incredibly small plant.

Not good. Too little potting soil. Plant tiny and very fragile. Not doing well at all. Will not buy from this site again.

Very happy

I have ordered from Succulents Box numerous times and I could not be happier with the service, the care in shipping and the end result I have experienced.

Arrived in Good Condition

I've been very excited about this plant! I received it about a month and a half ago and it came in good condition. It came with two or three small plants. They have not thrived as well as I would like BUT I'm pretty sure that's my fault. I probably have it in a pot that is too big though it is in soil that is appropriate for succulents. The plant also seems to need some support. That being said, my Crassula Calico Kitten is green and growing! I don't have a place to put it in direct sunlight so the leaves have stayed green.

Pleasantly Surprised

I was really happy when my plant arrived. I got it as part of a gift for someone and was planning on taking a cutting for myself. But, when I opened it, I saw 2 already rooted individual baby plants. I feel like the amount I received was well worth the money!
