WTF? You guys don't even sell Succulents? 🧐
Hey 👋 . Valid point. We sell everything but the plants. Pots and Planters, propagation stations and all the tools you need to begin your succulent addiction or take it to the next level. We'd rather help you to find the joy in propagating your own plants and supply quality tools and advice to help those succas thrive. 🌱
Ok so tell us a bit more about you?
We are Tom and Rosanna, the owners of the Succulent Supply Co.
We quit our 9-5 jobs as product designers after getting married recently, with the aim to build a life where we can do more of what we love.
Succulents have always been a love of Rosanna’s ever since she realized how easily they can be propagated and Tom has always loved great design and technology (He's also kept a cactus alive since he was a small child! 100% cacti qualified 👨🎓🌵).

Based on the overwhelming evidence above we settled on the naive decision to start this e-commerce business. We certainly underestimated the amount of work involved in building a brand and business, but we've enjoyed it every step of the way.
What's the mission of the Succulent Supply Co.?
1. To make it as satisfying, stylish and simple as possible for everyone to have succulents in their home and propagate them to infinity.
2. Drop the hate, propagate.
3. Support causes close to our hearts.
What causes will you support?
We want to live in a better world and to do this we see two options. The first is to promote wellbeing through a more considered lifestyle. We will help people to focus in areas of their lives that give them freedom, responsibility and satisfaction and step away from the things in life that divide us.
The second is to invest 1% from every single order into the next generation who haven't had access to the opportunities that we've had. Money raised from every order will go towards a charity called 'Skateistan' in their mission to provide education and leadership programs to children who need it most.
"We believe that positive social change happens when children are educated on how to take care of themselves and their communities. Our programs are for children aged 5 to 17 with a focus on girls, children living with a disability, and children from low income backgrounds. The four core programs aim to keep children and youth involved at Skateistan for the long term. As participants get older, they become role models to the younger students and to the wider community."
