Eight Subscription Services That Deliver Plants Right to Your Front Door
If you're a gardener, you likely can't resist bringing a new, gorgeous plant into your home. While nothing can take away from the joy of going to your local garden center, time may not always permit getting to see what new, seasonal options are being carried. Let's face it, you may not always want to deal with transporting plants, either.) If you're new to plant care, you may not know where to start your horticultural venture. Between the varieties, care needs, and ever-changing trends, you want to find the plants that work for you.
Enter the modern solution of plant subscription services. Whether you're a long-term plant parent or someone who's trying to hone their green thumb for the first time, it's time to consider plant subscription services, especially if you're looking for standard houseplants, cacti, air plants, and those beloved succulents. Each of the eight we found offer a seasonally curated selection of plants that include pet-friendly and beginner options, and each one delivers new finds right to your front door. Tell them a few key facts—the amount of sunlight in your home, your preferred planter style, local climate, and lifestyle—and many of these services will cater the delivery custom to you. Should you find yourself with any questions, you can also consult trained, knowledgeable instructors who will walk you through every step.
From interesting pots and planters to extra perks like online workshops and discounts, these picks have the added bonus of not costing a fortune and with most offering the option to gift plants, you can surprise a loved one just as much as you'll be when unboxing monthly plant picks.
Knock! Knock! uses a short profile to determine what plant pairing would be best for you. Explain what your front door looks like, the amount of sunlight the area gets, your planter style, and then insert your zip code (Knock! Knock! currently doesn't ship to Alaska or Hawaii) to get a container-ready mix that fits your needs. Plants arrive in a tray that allows you to make an indent in your preferred soil to ensure proper placement.
Plans: Choose from two subscriptions—recurring seasonal (which is $65 per quarter) or one time (which is $75 to get or give a pair of plants for whichever season is available at the time). Gift to a friend or cancel anytime.
Catered to people living in small spaces and shipping to the contiguous Unites States (which means it excludes Alaska and Hawaii), Horti offers four subscriptions nationally: pet-friendly, newbie, hoarder, and naked (plants come without a Horti clay pot). Plants range in care difficulty but they all come with tips on how to best manage the plant.
Plans: If you live in New York City, subscriptions range from $25 to $50 a month, while prices for those living outside the city are capped at $35. Choose between four subscriptions, all of which have no additional shipping fee cost. You can skip or cancel anytime.
The Sill offers three differently monthly subscription themes (Pet-Friendly, Low Light, or Best-For-Beginners) and planter color of your choosing. Shipping to 48 states (sorry, Alaska and Hawaii), you choose what you want and The Sill will send you a hand-potted plant each month, cycling through an assortment of plants and planter shapes. If you want your planter to be a different color from your initial choice, you can change it through your account.
Plans: $35 per month. Just note that subscriptions are a three-month commitment, but you can pause or cancel after the first three months.
Grown out of their succulent nursery in Long Beach, California, Succulent Studios sends two unique, organically grown plants to subscribers each month, and they'll ship anywhere in the United States. Sent as babies (about eight weeks old), your new plants will arrive in a two-inch biodegradable pot, ready to be planted.
Plan: Get two succulents for $10 plus shipping every month. You can skip a month, cancel, or gift your month anytime.
While Urban Sprouts carries standard houseplants, their subscriptions specialize in air plants, succulents and cacti, all perfect for smaller spaces. Plants, excluding air, come in a 2- or 3-inch pot and packaging that's made from recycled materials that can be thrown into your recycling or compost bin.
Plan: Choose from one of two subscriptions, Air Plant of the Month ($9.99 to $112) or the quarterly Cactus Collectors Club ($24.99 to $148). Gift, skip, or cancel anytime.
Leaf & Clay
If you can't get enough of cacti and succulents, you'll find plenty of bright and interesting individual options from Leaf & Clay. With their Plant Mail Club subscription, you'll get a 3-pack of 2.5-inch succulents.
Plan: Choose from a monthly ($15.95), 3-month ($47.85), or 6-month ($95.70) subscription, which you can cancel anytime.
House Plant Shop
House Plant Shop offers five types of subscriptions through their House Plant Box service. Shipping California-grown plants within the United States, you can choose from their Premium House Plant Box, Succulent Box, Air Plant Box, Pet-Friendly Plant Box, and Indoor House Plant Box.
Plans: Succulent Box, Air Plant Box, Pet-Friendly Plant Box, and Indoor House Plant Box are all $12 monthly while Premium House Plant Box is priced at $30 with free shipping on each. You can cancel anytime.
My Garden Box
My Garden Box not only gives you live plants but containers, growing tips, and unique accents. Boxes ship nationwide (excluding Alaska, Arizona, and Hawaii) and plants are curated based on the current season (houseplants and shade-tolerant plants for fall and winter, and more outdoor and light-loving plants for spring and summer). Purchase any one of their subscription offers or gift one to the expert or budding gardener in your life.
Plans: Choose from a monthly ($34.50), 3-month ($102.50), 6-month ($202.50), or 12-month ($382.50) subscription. Gift, skip, or cancel anytime.
