Grow your own blooming succulent garden! These beautiful and hardy succulents grow into a thick, pink flowering groundcover. Easy to root and so easy to grow that they are often seen on the sides of highways/freeways giving them the nickname highway ice plant. Large, striking pink purple flowers with pretty green angular leaves that can develop red tips.

YOU WILL RECEIVE:
----------------------------
🌵 1 LARGE Ice Plant cutting (not whole plant shown)
Very popular in rock gardens and for stabilizing eroded soil.

- See my store to order a nice selection of cactus cuttings.

- Cuttings are ~ 6-10" in length.

- Cutting may or may not be currently in flower as the flowers are seasonal. But don't worry you'll get you own pretty daisy like flowers in time, after you establish your cuttings.

- Cuttings are cut fresh and are very healthy. I carefully pack your order but a little stress from shipping is normal (for example a leaf falls off or crinkles) and won't effect the health of your cutting. As your plant roots and takes up water any signs of stress should disappear.

🌵 Your cuttings will comes with simple planting instructions.
- Cuttings are ready to plant.
- Easy to root
- Perfect as a lovely ground cover or can be planted in a pot.

🌵 LIGHT:
- Full or filtered sunlight

🌵 TEMPERATURE:
- Drought hardy
- Can handle a moderate frost once established.

🌵 SOIL:
- Use well draining soil.

🌵 Potted pictured is example submitted by a buyer. No pot or soil is included.

🌵 Succulents are living organisms and as such they will vary from each other in size, color... Cuttings may show slight cosmetic blemishes because they are live, growing organism.
These succulents grow with very little care for me but please research your own state and local growing conditions before ordering.


"The succulent evergreen with brilliant blooms has three-sided leaves that form a thick, fleshy green mat. The common ice plant grows six inches to one foot, spreading three feet through an aggressive rooting system. Its bold foliage and warm season color makes it a great choice as a groundcover. The blossoms are showy from early summer into the fall. Use it in sunny gardens, train it to trail down a vertical wall, or plant it in rock gardens or around pools and water features. The common ice plant can also be used in heavily eroded areas to root into the soil as a bank cover. It is an excellent choice for beachfront landscapes because it tolerates salty conditions. Rabbits may eat the plant, so when it is young, place chicken wire for protection. The ice plant is native to the Pacific coastline from Oregon down to Baja California, as well as in Chile and South Africa."

Maintenance:
"This fast-growing, perennial groundcover spreads quickly and requires minimal maintenance. While drought-tolerant, it requires occasional water at least once per month. It needs full sun and good drainage and is easy to propagate. Prune off fleshy stems and re-plant them in amended, well-draining soil. Provide irrigation and they will re-grow in other parts of the landscape. The plant can be walked on and will bear a great deal of human disturbance and foot traffic. It is hardy into the low twenties Fahrenheit."

**PLEASE READ:**
---------------------
I have a Department of Agriculture License to sell and ship plants. Be sure when you buy plants online that you buy from someone who has invested the many hundreds of dollars it takes each year to get this license and the Department of Agriculture inspections that go with the license. These inspections prevent the spread of diseases and insects. Plus the license let’s you know you are NOT supporting a cactus thief that illegally took cactus from the wild. All my cactus are grown here in Tucson AZ and NOT stolen from the wild.


------------------
ADD ON ITEM: SILICONE COATED TONGS FOR HANDLING YOUR CACTUS:
------------------
Ice Plants are easy to handle with bare hands. But if you grow cactus you will want to add a pair of my silicone coated tongs to your order.


Are you a cactus lover but hate getting spines in your hands? The handle is slick metal so spines don't stick where you place your hands on the tongs. I'd still personally wear gloves but with tongs you will definitely get less pokes from your cactus :)

🌵 1 Small silicone coated cactus tong (~7" long) (OPTIONAL ADD ON ITEM)
🌵 Seller will select the color based on what I have in stock

- These soft mini tongs are perfect for getting a good grip on your cactus cuttings without damaging your cuttings. These tongs are great when you need to handle and plant cactus cuttings or small cactus! You can even use them with soft succulents. The silicone coating helps to prevent damage to your cactus. The soft silicone helps you avoid adding punctures or scrapes to your plants. Such scrapes or punctures could introduce disease inside your plant.

Please purchase a heat pack from me if you are shipping in extremely cold weather. You can also have your packages held for pickup at the local post office to keep them off your hot/cold doorstep.

* I ship with USPS First claim mail for small orders (1-2 cuttings) or if you order 3+ cuttings I ship with FAST USPS Priority Mail.
Contact me if you need a rush order. Otherwise I will ship in 3-5 days since I personally hand cut and pack every order.

Unless you request otherwise, I will ship all orders containing plants Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so they don't end up sitting in a post office or postal truck over the weekend.


There is so much more! Please visit my shop for Unique Wine Gifts + Alcohol Themed Gifts + Live Cactus Plants + Succulent Arrangements & MORE! 

When Will My Order Ship?

Most items ship in 3-5 business days.  You are ordering handcrafted items that I make one at a time.  This timing allows me to handcraft, clean and package each item in your order.  Sometimes I can ship sooner if I can get my little ones to bed early :)

* Contact me if you need to pay a little more for a rush order.

 

What Happens Next?

1) You place your order online.

2) I print your order details and your postage label. 

3) I cut, sand, clean and package your order.

4) I send you an email with your estimated ship date and your tracking number. 

5) The shipping company picks up and scans your package.  Now the tracking number will show movement and your estimated delivery date. 

6) Your package arrives. Hip hip hooray!  

7) If you love your handcrafted items as much as I think you will please:

  • Leave me a review.
  • Send me pictures showing me how you are enjoying my handmade items.
  • And please share my little shop on social media.  Your friends will appreciate the unique gift ideas. 

 

Transit Time:

Most orders ship with UPS Ground, FedEx Ground or FedEx Home Delivery.  This is because shipping glass requires large, heavy boxes and these carriers give the best rates for large, heavy shipments. 

 

UPS Ground Delivery Times: ~ 1 to 5 business days depending on carrier delays and how far you are from Arizona.

FedEx Ground Delivery Times: ~ 1 to 5 business days depending on carrier delays and how far you are from Arizona.

FedEx Home Delivery: ~ 1 to 7 business days depending on carrier delays and how far you are from Arizona.

 

Need your order faster?

If you want to upgrade to USPS Priority Mail to get your gifts faster please see the steps below. 

For a rush order please email me a screen shot of the items in your chart + your shipping zip code.  It will take me 24 - 48 hours to type up and email you a order link with a paid upgrade to USPS Priority Mail.  After you order it takes 1-3 days to sand, cut, clean and package your order.  After your order is made it takes USPS Priority Mail 3-4 days on average to deliver your order.

 

* ALL shipping carriers are experiencing holiday and Covid delays.  Once I ship on time delivery is solely up to the shipping carrier.  

 

For small orders of 1-2 items the cost of USPS Priority Mail will be only slightly higher than the cost of Ground shipping.  But if you are ordering 3+ items USPS Priority Mail will be MUCH more expensive than Ground shipping.  But USPS Priority Mail may arrive faster? 

 

 

shipping FAQs

Do you have a question about shipping charges?

For large orders you can contact me if you feel the shipping is not  I being combined correctly. Please leave the items in your cart so I can see your shipping address and the weight and size of items in your cart.

Be sure to checkout with all your items in the same cart.  If you check out multiple times with 1 item in each checkout you may be charged for multiple shipments instead of a combined shipment. 

For international orders USPS and others do charge quite a bit to ship internationally.  Also you may be responsible for a tariff charged to you by your country.  Sorry I have no way to know if they will charge an import fee / tariff or how much you will be charged.

I really don't make any money on shipping. 

I wish I could offer free shipping on every order but this is a mom and pop shop.  Small businesses don't have the buying power that a big chain store has to get special prices on postage.  

Thank you for understanding!

I want a bottle I don’t see in your shop:

* Do you have a favorite alcohol bottle? Contact me to see if I have your favorite bottle in stock. My husband complains that my bottle collection takes up too much room! I have lots of bottles that don’t get listed because I only have 1 of them or because my little ones keep me too busy to put all my items online.

* Do you have a special bottle that is just sitting around taking up space? You can mail me your favorite bottle and I would be happy to make it into the perfect gift by turning your favorite bottle into a soap dispenser, succulent planter, vase, candle holder, serving dish, snack bowl, candy dish, ash tray, pendant light shade or something you saw on Pinterest …. Just email me for details! I’m happy to do custom orders!

 

About my bottles:

* Remember to ZOOM IN on my pictures, look at the edges and see what a difference professional machining makes!

* I also apply a surface protectant to the bottle itself that repels fingerprints, hard water minerals... Giving the bottle a brighter appearance and making fingerprints easy to wipe away.

* My bottles come from friends, country clubs and restaurants. I take pride in what I make and only ship bottles I would use as gifts. We are giving new life to a used bottle that otherwise would have spent nearly 1 million years in a landfill! True! If the quality of the label or the color of the foil on the bottle neck (when included) is important please let me know and I will do my best to find a bottle that is just right for you.

 

Can I pick my bottle?

* You can pick some aspects:


- Use the drop down menu to select if you want a drainage slit in your bottle. Plants will do better if you add a drainage hole.


- (For Wine Bottles) label on or label off? Please use drop down menu to select label on or off.


- Wine bottles come in various shades of brown, green, clear... I will select a beautiful colored bottle for you. Wine bottles maybe red wine bottle, white wine bottle or a champagne bottle in shape (based on availability).  Or if you would like to select you wine bottle you check out using these special listings: 


* Bottle colors/bottle shapes are subject to availability and there may be an extra charge for special requests such as a particular brand, bottle shape & glass color.  I have to charge a fee for such requests because it can take me a very long time to unpack all my bottles to find one that meets all of your specifications.  

 

Custom and personalized orders

* For a custom order just email me with what you need. I’ll type it up as a custom order that you can purchase just like a normal listing.

Perhaps turn a favorite bottle or brand of alcohol into a soap dispenser, succulent planter, vase, candle holder, serving dish, snack bowl, candy dish, ash tray, pendant light shade or something you saw on Pinterest …. Just email me for details! I’m happy to do custom orders.

How do you cut the bottles?

* I cut your bottle using professional lapidary equipment. Some of which I inherited from my beloved late grandpa Pop pop. As a teenage he started teaching me. Now I'm grown with children of my own. I'm using what he taught me to make a living while I take a break from teaching to be with my little ones. His professional equipment and and my attention to detail is why my bottles have such beautiful, safe edges.

PLEASE ZOOM IN on the photos and see how beautiful the edges are on my professionally cut bottles! I take pride in my work and this is a gift you will be proud to send.

FYI this glass was not originally intentioned for it's new purpose in life so PLEASE HAND WASH AND DO NOT PUT IN THE DISHWASHER. Enjoy!
