Old Man Cactus Water and Light Recommendations

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.

Watering Needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

Can I Ask for a Later Delivery Date?

Absolutely! Just add a note.

  • All you need to do is add an order note (in the cart before checkout) with the date you need the package by.
  • We cannot guarantee delivery on a specific date. However, we can plan to get it to you by a certain date.

Is Your Packaging Eco Friendly?

Yep. Score 1 For Mother 🌎

  • We know that using non recyclable packaging is becoming a leading pollution cause in the world. So we try our best to ensure our materials are either biodegradable or recyclable.
  • Our packing peanuts are water soluble and our other packing materials are made from recycled and re recyclable papers.

Our Succy Guarantee 🌵😊

We want to ensure you that if you are not satisfied with your order, we will make it right!

We will help you in whatever way we can. Whether it's a refund for a damaged shipment or helping you acclimate your new plants to your environment.

Let's be transparent here... Most of the time a plant arrives looking a little sad, it is not necessarily a quality issue, but rather the current health of the plant. That's why we are here to help you.

Most plants will acclimate to their new environment within 48-72 hours.
