Succulents are a pretty hardy group of plants. They store water in their leaves and do well planted in a sandy soil to insure good drainage. They do well outdoors in warmer climates so be sure to bring them indoors if you live in a cooler climate where the temperatures drop to 40. Place them near a sunny window if you plan to keep them indoors.
You will receive 1 well-established, rooted plant, currently growing in a 2 inch pot, sent bareroot and packaged with great care. It will be shipped via USPS Priority mail.
If you are ordering from an area with weather below 32 degrees, please consider purchasing a heat pack.

Shipping & policies
Shipping 7-10 days with a few exceptions via USPS 2-3 day priority mail. We run specials, holidays and VACATIONS, shipping times will change, and will posted. Once the plant is ordered, we want to make sure that the roots are bare when shipped. Please open your package and unwrap as soon as they arrive. Succulent plants can lose their color and as with all living plants, they really prefer to get out of their boxes and into a good soil mixture. Any of the listings that state plants are shipped bare root means that they are out of the pot and have very little soil. While they can travel that way its best to get them replanted as soon as they get to their new home.
