Can I choose a specific succulent that I wish to gift?

Unfortunately unless you purchase a succulent from our limited edition range, you will not be able to choose a specific succulent. This is because of the seasonal nature of succulents and our inability to guarantee that a particular succulent will be available at any point in time. 

Generally, we stock a wide variety of large 6 to 12cm succulents, you can select the variety of succulent plant that you wish to purchase from the following:

1) Echevarias -  Are rosette shaped plants with smooth leaves  



2) Haworthias, Gasterias and Aloe - Have firm, tough, fleshy leaves that are dark in colour 



3) Cactus - Have a thick fleshy stem which typically bears spines, lacks leaves, and may have coloured flowers


Please Note - Where no nomination is made for 12cm (large) pots we will select the succulent that best matches the pot that you selected. 


Do your pots have drainage holes?

No, our pots do not have drainage holes which makes them perfect for indoor use. Single succulents will come in their own plastic insert with holes which fits perfectly inside our single pots. The plastic insert containing the succulent can be removed when watering the plant and returned to the pot once the water has drained out. Be careful when removing the plastic insert especially if it contains a cactus. You may wish to wear thick plastic gloves and cover the cactus with newspaper.

This method of watering will eliminate water build up that will may cause the plant to rot and leave you floor and furniture clean.


How and how often should I water my plants?

Succulents and Cacti can actually go a while without watering, 

Make sure that soil is relatively dry before watering your plant.

If you are not sure whether to water or not. Don't.  Wait another week before watering.


When should I repot my succulent or plant?

After a few month your plant may outgrow the pot it originally came in, consider repotting it in a slightly bigger pot with a drainage hole. For succulents and cacti, we recommend using a succulent and cacti soil mix which can be purchased at your local nursery.


How will my purchase be packaged or wrapped?

Your purchase will be packaged according to the items and size of the items that you purchase. If its intended as a gift it will be wrapped accordingly and include a complimentary gift card with your personalised message.

We have a selection of boxes, hessian bags, tissue paper, clear cellophane, different colour ribbons, bamboo trays and various other containers/boxes on hand and we will best match the packaging according to the items you purchase.
