     It has very small white flowers in the summer. The plant grows up quickly with regular watering but it can also be drought tolerant.

  • 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.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.

    ** We ship all year round, heat packs are available for purchase in the winter. Please purchase a heatpack if the temperature in your area is below 40F. If your heatpack isn't in the same order with your other plants, please drop us a message, we'll add it for you.
  • 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.

Absolutely beautiful

I couldn’t be happier. My plants arrived quickly and larger and prettier than I expected. I will definitely purchase plants through them again. I highly recommend purchasing plants from them if you want beautiful, healthy plants.

Vey interesting plant

First I ordered these and it took the post office over a week to deliver. That said, 3 out of 4 survived the long trip in a box and i credit The Succulent Box for this in shipping extremely healthy plants. On to the plant itself. I find the style of this plant to be interesting in itself, along with the smoked blue grey color of it. I purchased it to have something tall in a three plant container. I will not only have a tall one, but the color will stand out quite nicely as being different. I really look forward to watching this plant grow and give me many years of pleasure as I continue to purchase from The Succulent Box.
