I plan to use it as a hanging on my wall.
This is the coolest thing and I was so excited when I received it. My husband knew I loved succulents and thought this to be so thoughtful. I followed all directions to a T. At first they took off and looked amazing. Then the box started to rot and grow mildew and it went downhill from there. I'm left with 3 of the plants and they're barely hanging on. I tried replanting them to see if I got them out of the mold they'd do better. My order number was 7715592-1. I was going to purchase another until I saw the price. It was a lot of money spent for dead plants and a rotted box :(
I can't wait for the plants grow for the finish product.
I work in a medical office so I brought it here to babysit it while it's growing, but I have so many compliments I may leave it here!
*This is an updated review.* I reviewed this product and I was not happy with it. I was very sad that the plants were not thriving even though I followed the directions. The vendor saw my review and sent me a brand new kit. The whole thing, wow. Anyway, this one has totally taken off. It is growing strong and I may need to do a little trim. I did exactly the same thing I did before but this one took off. Maybe the first one was seasonal timing or just a different batch of plants. I am very thankful that I was given a second shot because it is exactly what I wanted and I love it. Knock on wood, I have not lost any plants!!!! The first one I bought is still kicking but as I said before, the more decorative plants just never took off. Maybe I can learn how to trim and transfer from pot to pot. That would be kind of neat to learn. Now, the planter is pretty and educational.
I received this product as a wedding gift in October 2016. After having the product for more than four months, I can say that it starts out great and then (sadly) goes downhill. After keeping the product flat but elevated on blocks for 12 weeks, I had a great collection of strong succulents. I moved the planting to a wall, where it was fine for a month. However, since then, this product has gotten mold and rot everywhere, and the succulents have started to die. Even back on a flat surface (off of the wall), it is growing mold constantly. I haven't changed my growing or watering habits. I think that once the mold starts, it's just really hard to stop it. This product would be great outside or as a centerpiece on a table. I do not recommend it on walls for interior spaces.
My son enjoys plant so great, unique gift
I received this as a Mother's Day gift from my husband and 2 girls. I loved it and thought is was so thoughtful. I followed the instructions to a tee. I loved and nurtured it because I really wanted this to work and grow. Unfortunately, some of the babies didn't last out of the gate and as time is going on some of the more decorative plants just never took root and are slowly dying off. Some have done wonderful and are growing well. I lost over 50% and it just doesn't look like the photo. My girls get sad every time they check it because it is looking thinner and thinner. Now that I see how much this gift cost, I would say it is not worth the money. It is a great idea. I honestly loved it but it just did not turn into the beautiful gift it was meant to be.
My mom loves this unique birthday gift. Easy to assemble.
This succulent planter is a great idea and looks awesome, however it does have some faults. Unfortunately, while my succulents are growing well, I have encountered a mold problem. White and back fuzzy mold is a reoccurring problem on the back of my planter box. I've tried keeping the planter at a slight angle to allow for air flow while the succulents are still rooting, but I keep having mold growth. I love my planter and the succulents are growing great, but the mold issues I've been having are a concern.
