Size and Shipping

Size Definition

Most plants are shown in 2 Inch pots (square), 4 Inch pots (round or square), 6 Inch pots (round), and 8 Inch pots (round).

The Size option, such as 2 Inch, 4 Inch, etc., typically represents the size of the pot that the plant is shown in. In most cases, it does not represent the width, length, or height of the plant, with some exceptions:

- Monkey Tail Cactus: The size represents the length of the cactus

- Some columnar cactus / cacti plants

- Certain plants that are shown without a pot

Letter Suffix in Size

When a letter is added to the size value (Example: 2 Inch #A or 4 Inch #B), it represents different variants of the same size. The meaning could vary depending on the type of plant. The corresponding listing photos of each size variant provide the best representation of the plants that you'll receive.

The letter suffix could represent one or more of the following:

- Differences in plant maturity and/or fullness

- Differences in plant size and/or shape

- Differences in style and/or color

- Differences in amount of variegation

- Unrooted cuttings vs. rooted plants

 

Packaging & Handling

Vast majority of our plants shown in 4 Inch or larger pots are shipped bare roots (See below fore more details).

Most plants shown in 2 Inch pots are shipped in their original plastic pots with soil because they are small and are less subject to damaging during transit.

We carefully wrap each plant with wrapping paper and place them securely inside the box. Then, we fill the remaining space in the box with newsprint paper, air pillows, or crinkle paper to ensure the plants don't move around during shipping, and hence minimize shipping shock.

Shipping with Pots

The plants listed below are shipped with the pot and soil to ensure that they can stay healthy through transit:

  • Most plants shown in 2 Inch pot (exclusion applies, some 2 Inch plants are shipped bare root to provide better protection)
  • String of Pearls in 2 Inch and 4 Inch pot
  • Variegated String of Pearls
  • String of Hearts
  • Variegated String of Hearts

Shipping Bare Roots

Shipping bare roots and soft paper wrapping provide the following benefits:

  • Prevent broken parts, fracture, scuffing, and fallen nodes/leaves
  • Minimize residual moisture within the package
  • Prevent soil getting into the leaves and causing a big mess
  • Reduce shipping weight and the cost that our customers pay

Pickle Plant is of the genus Delosperma in the Aizoaceae family. They’re native to the Dry Morning region of the Eastern Cape of South Africa. They're subtropical arid zone plants and are fleshy shrub plants. Their branches are densely grayish brown or light brown. 

This plant’s leaves are barrel-shaped and bristle with soft spine-like hairs. And white or yellow flowers can be produced throughout the year. 

It is a foliage ornamental plant with long branchlets covered with pearl-like leaves, which are delicate and elegant, along with small yellow flowers. It can be used for indoor decoration of several cases and wall hanging in bedrooms and bathrooms.

 

Care Tips

Light: They prefer full sun but can tolerate semi-shade. If there is not enough light, the plant will easily have excessive growth. The distance between the upper and lower leaves will be longer, making the plant more loose, and the stems will also become very fragile and delicate.

Water: The soil needs to be kept slightly moist for a long time to avoid waterlogging. Water is basically cut off throughout the winter, and when it’s below 41°F(5 °C), it is time to start slowly cutting off water. When the temperature exceeds 95°F (35 °C) in the summer, the growth of the whole plant basically stops. It is worth stating that in the summer, water is not cut off for the whole season, but only a small amount of water is given. Otherwise the old leaves tend to dry out, and watering is only on the side of the pot about 2-4 times a month (given at night). 

Soil: It’s mainly loose and breathable loam, so the soil for potted plants can be mixed with sandy loam and coarse sand, and the right amount of fertilizer can be added to the soil as a nutrient for growth.

Potting: It is recommended to use ceramic pots. Ceramic pots have a certain degree of permeability. Clay pots lose water too quickly, and plastic pots tend to retain water for too long and permeability is poor.

Temperature: The optimal growing temperature is between 61-82°F (16-28°C). This plant needs three hours or more of direct sunlight each day so try to take it outside when the temperature increases to 50°F(10° C) or more

Humidity: Pickle Plant grows well in average household humidity levels. It doesn’t like too much humidity

    Care Instructions

    Please visit our Succulent Care info page for more details.

    To ensure the health of succulents, it is important to plant them in porous, well-draining soil. Succulents require little watering, but don't like to sit in wet soil. To create an adequate cactus mix, simply add pumice, perlite, or grit to cactus soil to provide the proper drainage.

    Make sure to leave drought periods between waterings to prevent the plant from water-logging.
