Unboxing Plants Ordered on Etsy

I. Introduction

Welcome to my first YouTube video where I will be doing a quick unboxing of some plants that I ordered from Etsy. I have been a frequent customer of this particular seller and have decided to share the unboxing experience with you. Let's jump right into it!

II. Ordering Plants on Etsy

Before we get into the unboxing, let me give you a little background on my experience ordering plants on Etsy. I have ordered from this seller multiple times in the past, so I was confident in the quality of the plants I would receive. Etsy provides a platform for independent sellers to showcase their products, and it's a great place to find unique plants for your collection.

III. Unboxing Experience

As I opened the box, I noticed that the packaging was slightly different from my previous orders. The seller had changed from using styrofoam packing peanuts to a different method. Nonetheless, the plants were securely wrapped, and that's what mattered the most.

IV. Plant 1: Astrophytum Capricorn

The first plant I unwrapped was a stunning Astrophytum Capricorn. I was immediately drawn to its unique spines, and I knew I had to have it in my collection. Astrophytum Capricorn is known for its unmistakable spines, and it adds a touch of quirkiness to any plant collection.

V. Plant 2: Locombergia Principes

Next up was the Locombergia Principes, a cactus with a peculiar name. Pronouncing the scientific names of plants has never been my strong suit, but that doesn't diminish my fascination with this species. This particular plant was my second one in the collection, and I couldn't wait to add it to my display.

VI. Plant 3: Another Astrophytum Capricorn

Moving along, I unwrapped yet another Astrophytum Capricorn. Although similar to the first one, each plant has its unique characteristics, especially when it comes to the spines. It's intriguing to see the slight variations within the same species.

VII. Plant 4: Polaskia Chichibe

One of the plants that caught my eye on Instagram was the Polaskia Chichibe, a columnar cactus. I had seen a mature specimen, and I knew I had to have one. Opening the package, I was thrilled to see this striking cactus for the first time. It was a great addition to my growing collection.

VIII. Plant 5: Another Astrophytum Capricorn

Back to the Astrophytum Capricorn, I had ordered multiple plants of this species. The allure of their spines was hard to resist. This time, the spines on the plant were different from the previous ones, adding even more diversity to my collection.

IX. Plant 6: Ester Vitamin or An Atom

Next up was an Ester Vitamin or An Atom (the scientific naming can be puzzling sometimes). This plant had a distinct look, different from the previous ones. With its shorter spines, it added an element of variety to the collection.

X. Plant 7: Kino Cactus Platia Cantus

As I unwrapped the next plant, I found it was the Kino Cactus Platia Cantus. This species is a giant barrel cactus, and I was excited to finally have it in my collection. The root system looked healthy, further indicating the quality of the plants I received.

XI. Missing Plant and Refund

Unfortunately, I received an email before the unboxing stating that one of the plants I ordered was no longer available. This led to a refund for that particular plant. It was a disappointment, but the rest of the plants made up for it.

XII. Conclusion

In conclusion, the unboxing experience of these plants from Etsy was a positive one overall. Despite the refund for one plant, I was satisfied with the quality and diversity of the plants I received. Etsy remains a reliable platform for plant enthusiasts to find unique additions to their collections.

XIII. Blooming Cacti

Before ending the video, I wanted to showcase some of my cacti that are currently blooming. The Mammillaria species, including the Plumosa and Red-Headed Irishman, have been putting on a beautiful display of blooms. These plants have brought joy to my gardening journey.


Q: How do you choose which plants to order on Etsy? A: When browsing Etsy for plants, I look for unique species that I don't already have in my collection. I consider factors like growth requirements, appearance, and the seller's reputation.

Q: Is Etsy a reliable platform for ordering plants? A: In my experience, Etsy has been a reliable platform for ordering plants. However, it's essential to research the sellers' reviews and ratings to ensure a positive buying experience.

Q: How do you care for the cacti you received? A: Each species has its specific care requirements, but in general, cacti prefer well-draining soil, ample sunlight, and minimal watering. I make sure to research and provide the necessary conditions for each plant to thrive.

Q: Will you be doing more unboxing videos in the future? A: Yes, absolutely! I have another package on the way, and I plan to share the unboxing experience in an upcoming video. Stay tuned for more exciting content.

Q: How did you get into collecting plants? A: I've always had an interest in nature, and collecting plants was a natural progression for me. It started with a few small succulents, and my passion for plants has grown since then.

Q: Can you recommend any other sources for buying plants? A: Besides Etsy, there are other online platforms like eBay, specialized plant nurseries, and local plant fairs where you can find a wide selection of plants. It's always good to explore different sources to find unique and rare species.
