⚠️ Extremely fragile. Some leaves may fall off during shipping.

⚠️This moonstone is pink, but during shipping it may change color due to the condition in the box. It will turn pink and thrive again if well taken care of. Please read this for your reference:

⚠️This is a fragile plant, so we'll try our best to pack it very carefully with multiple layers of bubblewrap and peanuts, and the box will have multiple fragile signs. However, we cannot control how USPS handle packages. Therefore please understand that we cannot offer replacement or refund if some leaves break during transportation! We're more than happy to share tips on leaf propagation, so please feel free to let us know if you have any question.

This plant is hardy down to around 25 degrees F. It does enjoy regular watering during the warmer months but it must be protected from cold weather (below freezing) during the winter. You will receive a plant similar to the one pictured, please be aware that no 2 plants are exactly the same. Also be careful of overwatering because it may be prone to root rot if soil remains wet for too long.

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.

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. Sedums such as Cherry Tart and Lime Zinger are dormant in the winter, i.e. they wilt, start dropping leaves, and look dead. It's simply a survival mechanism that help succulents stay alive over the cold winter and gear up for warmer days ahead.

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.

My Moonstone Pachyphytum arrived in PERFECT condition.

This was my first order from Succulents Box. Moonstone Pachyphytum is a delicate plant to ship and Succulents Box gave lots of warning about possible damage to the plant during shipping. My plant arrived in perfect condition. It was wrapped so carefully (in bubble wrap) and the soil was moist so the plant wouldn't dry out during shipping. I was really pleased with this order. I'll order again. TY!!

The transaction was seamless and

The transaction was seamless and the plants arrived quickly. I left four stars because one of the six succulents arrived in poor condition. I don't think it was due to damage during delivery- it looks like its dying (it arrived with wet soil so its not thirsty). Overall, I would recommend the Succulents Box to my friends.
