Succulents Box Valentine's Day Gift Guide 2019

Succulents Box is a monthly subscription box that is organically grown. You can choose from 1, 2, 3, 4, and airplant. I was sent 4 succulents which cost $20/ month, $57/3 month subscription, $114/ 6 month subscription, and $228/ 12 month subscription. I got the December 2018 box which included concrete leaf, Jewel Weed, Carpet Leaf, Sheep’s Tongue, or Living Stone. It forms rosettes up to 3 inches (7.5 cm) in diameter. These rosettes consist of fleshy grey-green leaves with plenty of rough white grey tubercles concentrated at the tips. Jewel Plant produces yellow or orange flowers of about 0.8 inch (2 cm) in diameter. It usually becomes dormant or semi-dormant during the hottest summer months. Anacampseros  Telephiastrum ‘Variegata’ is a dense mat and caudex forming succulent up to inches (15 cm) tall, with lanceolate shaped green, bright pink and yellow or cream colored leaves. 

They can be grown compact as rosettes, but with time they start to grow longer and longer and offsetting to create a dense mat or trail over the edge of pots. With age they also can form a small caudex as the base of the plant, but because of how very slow growing they are this takes a very long amount of time. Flowers are pink and up to 1.4 inches (3.5 cm) in diameter and appear in the afternoon in summer.
 Crassula Moonglow Square Rosettes it has thick fleshy gray-green leaves that form compact square rosettes stacked on top of each other like a tower (quite similar to Crassula Ivory Tower or Ivory Pagoda) as high as 18 inches. The plant needs a lot of support so that the stacked column will not fall over. Its leaves are covered with fine short hairs, giving it a chalky fuzzy look. Crassula Moonglow produces clusters of small pink-orange flowers in winter or spring.
Lapidaria Margaretae Karoo Rose is closely related to the Aizoaceae family. Therefore, it looks quite similar to Lithops, Dinteranthus, and Schwantesia, except that Lapidaria margaretae has from two to four pairs of leaves instead of just one pair. In the fall or early winter, Karoo Rose blooms beautiful large yellow flowers up to 2 inches (5 cm) wide.
My Opinion: this is a unique box for anyone that wants something different to give as a gift. For any occasion such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, housewarming gift, and more. I think these are easy to take care of something that even me who has a black thumb can keep alive.
