To receive plants from overseas you must have an Importing Permit. To send plants overseas is also required a Phytosanitary treatment which costs around $200 + Shipping. 

 Combining postage

  • Do you combine postage?
  • Can I add extra plants to my order?

We have made a few changes to the way we manage our online orders as we are now finalizing it on a daily basis to ensure everyone gets their order on time as a result and unfortunately for this reason we can no longer offer to combine orders for postage.  (Updated 26/06/20).  Please check our shipping and shopping guide for more information at this link:  https://www.succulents-australia-sales.com/pages/shopping-guide 

Although these changes will not affect our WA customers which is done monthly. Orders have to be placed before cut off day and by adding your previous orders numbers on the “order notes” at the check-out and we will refund the treatment fee and postage if it is necessary.

    After plants arrive

    •  Will my succulents be alright in the mail?
    • I have got my parcel and my plants look very dry / withered / wrinkly, why is this? Will they survive?

    Yes, they will be alright, they are hardy / drought tolerant plants which allows us posting and sending all our plants bare rooted. It is part of the shipping process, we allow the plants to dry for a few days before postage to remove any excess of moisture from around the plant, so they do not arrive with any fungal or rotting issues what is more likely to happen during postage if it is packed having any moisture in a confined place. The best thing to do is to pot them up into a DRY potting mix and then let them sit for a week or so without being watered or until new roots have grown. Place it in a warmer position. Once plant is established do not water often in winter.

    •  What do I do with my plants now they have arrived?
    • How and where do I plant my succulents?
    1. Pot up your new succulents into your desired pot using a - DRY succulent potting mix.
    2. Place your pots in an airy environment in a bright location, protect it from direct sunlight and frost.
    3. After few weeks new roots will start to grow, then you can water it. After watering check the weight of the pot to have an idea when it will need water again. It may need when the pot becomes light AND / OR the leaves look a bit dehydrated wrinkly.
    •  Exception care for winter season:

    Good and happy growing from Succulents Australia plants will need watering only once or twice every month or two during the winter months. For good plant health is added a small amount of Dolomite Lime to our potting mix as it is full of minerals and trace elements.

    The best-looking succulents are grown in good light with minimal fertiliser and with just enough water for slow growth. This is when they exhibit their best form, shape, and colour.

    Pot them up into a DRY potting mix and then let them sit for a week or so without being watered or until new roots have grown. Place your pots in an airy environment, warmer and bright location, protect it from direct sunlight and frost. Once plant is stablished do not water often in winter, twice a week in average. It may need water when the pot becomes light AND / OR the leaves look a bit dehydrated wrinkly.

We also want to let you know we are working hard and overtime to minimize this situation and we really believe that we can be back up to date shortly.
