Give the Gift of a Monthly Succulents Box This Holiday -- Save 15% Off Your First Order Now from Succulents Box! (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

One thing I wasn't born to be was a gardener.  Oh, how I wish I had a green thumb, but I never seem to have any luck with flower or vegetable gardens.  I thought I got lucky this past spring when I planted our vegetable garden. Everything started to sprout up and fill out garden bed.  But, thanks to living in the country and sharing land with deer, rabbits and a groundhog who made his home under our shed, I came back from a weekend vacation with my family to find all my plants were eaten, right down to the root.  We had cucumbers and tomatoes that were changing color and almost ready to pick, but they ended up being a meal for the critters who live in our woods. I hope they appreciated all the time and effort I put into the garden. :-)  After this last garden mishap, I decided to hang up my gardener's hat...that was until I walked through a local flower shop and saw succulent plants, and learned from the horticulturist that they are the easiest thing to care for, and hard to kill.  This sounded right up my alley.  I went home and did a little more research, as I didn't want to buy them right on the spot and find that you needed to have  green thumb to keep these plants alive. 

After a little more research, I did learn indeed these were easy to take care of, all you had to do is keep out of the cold and spritz them with water when their soil gets dry -- something manageable on my family's busy schedule.  So, I looked online to see if I could find a store that sells and ships succulents and found myself browsing the Succulents Box website, which offers a monthly succulents subscription box that ships directly to your door each month.  Wow!, they had a lot of succulents, air plants and accessories to choose from, in addition their subscription options.  :-)

I reached out to the folks at Succulents Box and they graciously sent me a sample of their  4 succulents/month subscription box to review and enjoy. 

Within a few days of conversing, the box arrived at my door, ready for me to enjoy these succulent plants.  I couldn't wait to open the box and the see the succulents they sent.

Not only were each of the four succulents wrapped in bubble wrap to protect them during transit to me, but the box also contained care instructions (which for a non green thumb like me is a must), as well as little identification cards so I could tell what each of the four succulents I sent were, in case I wanted to buy more, or brag to friends and family how my Crassula Moonglow was flourishing. :-)

Succulents included in the box were:
Titanopsis Calcarea, Lapidaria Margaretae, Telephiastrum Variegata, and Crassular Moonglow

Pictured about are the four succulents I was sent.  They all are unique, which I love, and based on the care instructions are so easy to take care of.  During the winter months you only have to water the soil one time a month to keep it moist.  In the summer, it goes up to watering them every 1-2 weeks.  But, less water is needed in the winter as the plants are dormant. I guess this is the perfect season to gift succulents to friends and family as there really isn't much care needed for these plants, and they will not need tending to if you are doing any sort of holiday travel.

Because I was sent four succulents to admire and care for, I decided to let my two girls pick their favorite succulent from the Succulents Box to put up in their rooms and take care.  They love helping me in the garden and planting flowers to see if they will grow.  So, I knew they would love these succulents, which are the easiest plant to take care, as it only need water when the soil is dry.  My girls were all smiles when I told them they could have their own succulent, and they were quick to choose their favorite, before running up to their bedrooms to find the perfect spot for their new succulent plant.  They both ended up putting them on their bookcases on the opposite side of the room, that way they could lay in their beds and admire them, and it would be the first thing they would see each morning when they wake up.  They even added the next watering date which is 1/11/19 to their calendars so that they know when to check the soil and water again, during the winter months.

I am so happy we had a chance to try out the Succulents Box subscription service, and I will definitely be buying more of these unique succulents.  And, right now, my readers can save 15% off their order over at SucculentsBox.com by entering promo code LOVEPLANTS at checkout.  

I plan to get this Christmas Gift Box which include an air plant for only $17.45, and gift to family and friends this holiday season!

I am loving this air plant, too!

So, if you are still looking for last minute ideas for friends and family, or need to get yourself a few more gifts to leave under the tree for yourself for Christmas morning, why not order a succulents subscription box from Succulents Box today?  You will not be disappointed with the quality of the succulents.
