How to host a succulent swap: An unboxing and plant wrapping demo

I thought it would be fun and informative to open the box from our Texas Succulent Swap with y’all! Watch me unwrap and demonstrate how to wrap* succulents for shipping in the mail. I also explain how to set up a swap so you can host your own plant-mail party!

The first 15 minutes are of the unboxing and the rest shows me filling it back up with plants for the next recipient, a very special lady named Becky who just got married and used some of the swap sucs in her wedding bouquet — you’ll get to see some photos of the results! *Wrapping demo starts at 15:18
