Dick's survival guide

What's in a name

Although he can be a real prick sometimes, Dick means well. He doesn't want to hear about your latest episode binge of whatever it is you're into right now. He'd rather talk about the weather with you because that's where his passion lies. Particularly sunshine. He's the kind of dude that would throw his bathing towel on the best lounge chair, poolside at 8AM just to be sure he can catch every ray of sun. It's a bit of a Dick move, we agree, but hey...what's in a name right?

What makes Dick so special

San Pedro Cacti are fast growing cacti that are commonly found in the Andes region. He's officially called a Trichocereus Pachanoi but who's keeping score. To us he'll always be Dick. There's really not much that you need to know about Dick, other than the fact that he's super low maintenance as long as you can give him some much needed sunshine (as much as possible). It is best to water Dick through the bottom of his pot. Fill a sink with about 2-3 inches of water and let him soak up that water about once every two to three weeks in spring and summer months. Dick takes a really long nap between October and April when he doesn't like to drink at all! Too much water and your Dick will start drooping and nobody wants that to happen!

How do you measure height?

Good question! We measure the height from the top of the plant to the bottom of the pot (including the pot itself).

Got a gift card for my birthday in the gift box (Fred the air plant was much larger than expected!) and after much though and deliberation given how large their assortment is, chose three plants to order. All three arrived earlier than expected and in fairly good condition, in very well planned packaging that even included a heat pack. They were a bit smushed but they seemed healthy - no pests - and are doing well now. The only problem I had was with just how full the pots were which made them a bit difficult to transport and water especially since they were pretty large given their pot size; definitely have to repot them within the year. Oh and the ceramic pot I ordered as well came and looks very cute! It's a touch small for their nursery pots, they fit inside but with a bit of a lip over the top, but otherwise look great. Definitely would recommend and plan on buying more in the future :D Read less

I ordered 2 plants in late January 2022 which were posted to me in the Okanagan. They arrived within a couple days with a heat pack that was still emitting heat. They were well packed and look healthy. Thanks for the gift of green in the dark of winter! Read less

So stoked on our order! It came in quick, in great conditions and the plants are lovely. They also use cardboard and brown paper, which is great! There was no plastic in the packaging. They even added 2 succulents as a gift in our order. Kelsi, one of their staff member even reached out to me to make sure I didn't make a mistake because not all the pots I ordered fit the plants I ordered (it was for some plants that I already owned, but how sweet?!) First time we purchased for Plantsome and definitely not the last. Great experience!! Read less
