Plants and such

1Where are you plants from?
We nurse and propagate most of our plants because the environment we create for them closely mimic places that they eventually find home to: homes, offices. Together with custom mixed soil, the plants have much higher livability and resilience. We also offer plants from local suppliers and import rare ones from overseas. We probably have the biggest selection of rare succulents and welcome retailers to buy bulk from us at wholesale prices.
2What's in your soil?
We only sell soil mixed by ourselves and we constantly offer new and improved versions for better results. We strive to use all natural materials for our soil mix. Different plant types and even pots requires different mixing proportions. We will be able to mix the optimal soil for you if you can tell us which plant and pot you will be using when you order from us.

Succulents and Cacti

1What are succulents?
Succulents are plants that are capable of storing water in their leaves and/or stems with thick skins to prevent water loss. This means then, that they are drought tolerant and many do not need frequent watering.
2Aren't succulents and cacti the same?
All cacti are succulents, the differences are that they have thicker skins and store more water. They all belong to the Cactacea family. They are found only in North- & South- Americas and Mexico. Succulents, on the other hand, are found all over the world (even in our part of the globe) with such huge diversity that they come in many forms, colours and needs. Thus, while they share traits such as storing of water and thick stems, not all succulents are cacti.
3Why are succulents are cacti die so easily?
Most of the succulents available in local market are originated in deserts, semi-deserts or arid environment which means that they will not tolerate high humidity and moisture. It is therefore extremely important to watch your watering habit. For more advice, visit our store for more precise guide on each species.
4Why are the leaves turning yellow/black?
Oh no, that isn't good. When the leaves turn yellowish and translucent, it almost certainly means that there's water issue. It's either the soil is damp or the plant has been exposed to high humidity. Either move the plant to a place with better air circulation or stop watering until the condition improves. If most of the leaves turn translucent and soft, it is highly likely the roots are rotted too. Sadly, that means throwing away the plant. If there are black spots on the leaves and/or stems, this is also an indication of high humidity causing fungus growth. Move the plant to an airier spot or improve air circulation. However, if the entire plant turns black, discard it ASAP.
