These days you can order just about anything online, including succulents and cacti! At Leaf & Clay, we ship beautiful succulents and cacti to every corner of the U.S. and its outlying territories. Whether you want one plant or hundreds, each order is given the same amount of care and attention.
Whether you're considering ordering succulents online for the first time, or have a Leaf & Clay order on the way, here are a few things you can expect from us:
In order for our beautiful plants to arrive at your front door in great condition, we have established several shipping practices to ensure a safe arrival:
While this process requires a significant time investment, we feel it's the best way to demonstrate our commitment to delivering high-quality plants in great condition. All of our orders are shipped via USPS First Class Mail or USPS Priority Mail, both of which take 1-3 business days to arrive. Please note that these shipping times are simply estimates and may take longer than anticipated. Leaf & Clay has no control over what happens to packages after they are in the possession of the USPS. If your order takes longer than the expected due to a USPS mishap, don't panic; succulents are very hardy and can handle shipping durations of a week to 10 days quite easily.
Your package has arrived and it's time to open everything up! As excited as you may be, please remember to take things slowly and handle the wrapped plants with care, particularly if you are receiving cacti as they may be quite sharp. Your package will be sealed with standard clear packing tape, or commercial paper tape, both of which can be cut easily with a knife or scissors.
When opening your package, do so from the top as your plants have been packed according to size and weight with heavier, larger plants on the bottom. The tissue paper used to wrap the your new succulents has likely been secured with scotch tape and may require some finagling to unwrap. We cannot express enough how important it is the take this step in the process slowly; haste will lead to broken leaves, pricked fingers, and unnecessary plant bruising.
Be sure to double check all of the packing material as to avoid accidentally discarding one or more plants from your order. We have had multiple customers contact us regarding missing plants, only to later discover them in the trash can, still neatly wrapped in tissue paper. :-)
So now what? You've received your order, unboxed your plants, and have a pile of "naked" succulents on your kitchen table. It's time to get planting!
