Succulent surprise is a Sydney based online retailer of ready to display fresh succulents, cactus, orchids and indoor plants. We believe that living plants are the perfect substitute for flowers. We love flowers, but unfortunately they only last a few days before they need to be thrown out, not to mention their environmental impact on our planet. We offer a large selection of beautiful succulent, cacti, orchids and indoor plants for homes, shops or offices. We also believe that succulents, cacti, orchids and indoor plants make great gifts especially when teamed up with chocolates or candy, a soft toy, alchohol, candles or balloons. We cater for almost any occasion and deliver across Sydney.
Hi! my name is Chantale, I am the founder of Succulent Surprise and I would like to welcome you to my online succulent, cactus, orchid and plant gift shop.
My love affair with succulents began approximately 2 years ago when I met my first succulent, which led to 2, then 10 and now many. I fell in love with these facinating plants because of the beauty, their energy and most of all the way they made me feel. I spent the last few years, collecting, propegating, growing and potting them. I became obsessed and found myself with so many plants that I did't know what to do with. So I began gifting them.
The receipients love them and would ask if i was selling them.
I began to contemplate the idea and even got as far as choosing a business name and setting up an instagram accountt only to kill my idea with doubt and the belief that it was too hard and it would not succeed.
Almost a year later, I got a chance to work in the florist industry and experienced first hand the reaction of the receipient upon receiving their gift, the smile it put on their face and the positive energy exchange between us as I handed them their flowers.
Whilst I love receiving flowers as a gift, it bothers me when they die and I have to throw them out. Not to mention the negative impact that I know that this waste has on the environment.
Then I had an idea...What if those flowers where replaced with a succulent or plant? One that is be ready to display, beautifully packaged, available online, delivered with a beautiful card all at the click of a button. Still a very thoughtful gift but one that would last far longer than any cut flower ever could. furthermore, it would also bring ongoing joy to the new owner as they begin to nurture and care for it and have a positive impact on their wellbeing and environment. For me this would provide me with the perfect oportunity to share my passion for succulents with others and make a living at the same time.
This time I took action and began sourcing and creating products and building the website.
Now Sydney has access to a new type of gift option, a living succulent or plant combined with a familiar favourite such as chocolates, alcohol, toys, candles or balloons.
Whether you're looking to buy a gift for a male or female, young or not so young, any occasion. we believe that a succulent surprise gift will surprise and delight them.
Our succulents come wth a 7 day freshness guarantee and same day delivery in Sydney is available on weekdays when order is received before 10am.
I hope that you enjoy gifting and receiving them as much as I have enjoyed bringing them to you.
With love from.
