When the weather starts to warm up, there is nothing I love more than cleaning up our porch and getting it ready for my plants. I have always loved house plants, but since we have a cat that loves to dig in dirt and eat plants, I keep all of my plant babies on our screened-in porch. This past winter, I let them all winter outside and I was very happy that the vast majority of them survived. Now, I’m just dusting off the pots and filling them up with new plants. I wanted to share my favorite places to buy plants online. This post contains affiliate links, and I’ve noted where my affiliate link contains a discount for you.
Succulent Studios (affiliate link – get $5 off your first month)
Succulent Studios was my first plant subscription! I have been very, very happy with my succulent plants from this shop. They only offer a 2 plant/month subscription, and it’s fairly affordable. Most of the plants are small, and they fit in a small box. I’ve had minimal problems with the shipping aspect of mailing plants. I’ve only had a couple that suffered during shipping. My favorite thing about Succulent Studios is their sustainable packaging. Nearly every part of the packaging is either paper or cardboard, with the only non-recyclable item being a rubber band that holds the plant onto the cardboard cut out. You can easily re-use the rubberbands after dusting off the dirt.
I also want to add that the Succulent Studios instagram account has a lot of tips and tricks for keeping your plants healthy! I learned how to propagate succulent cuttings from their stories.
Succulents Box (affiliate link)
This is the most versatile shop, because they offer a huge variety of subscriptions and they also have a shop for plants and plant accessories. I purchased their subscription last year, but decided two subscriptions was a lot every month. Now, I order as ‘needed’ (more like ‘as wanted’) and I’ve been extremely happy. I love their plants variety packs, because I ordered the pet friendly one. It really took the guess work out of finding pet friendly succulents.
This is a new-to-me store that sells something I’ve never seen before. They sell succulent cuttings! If you’ve ever propagated a succulent, then you know how easy it is. Purchasing a bag of cuttings is an inexpensive way of getting a large variety of plants. If you’ve never propagated cuttings before, it’s so simple. You basically lay your cuttings out on top of a pot of dirt and spritz the cuttings every day with water. As long as they don’t dry out or get too wet, you’ll have new little plants in no time.
I also want to share a little shop of my favorite pots, most of which are from Target. I have loads and loads of pots, so I don’t need anymore. But, I did buy some at the start of Spring and one of our children gifted me a new pot for Mother’s Day.
