The buzz of buying a nice pot plant only to take it home and have to throw it out days later when it somehow shrivels into a weed all by itself can be somewhat tiresome.
But there's a new way to stop killing plants - not to mention save money - forever. And it doesn't involve a diploma in gardening.
If you aren't green-fingered or maybe you are but you're just too busy watching Netflix that you can't be bothered to regularly feed and water the house plants then this Hard-To-Kill mini plant subscription box is right up your street.
Hard-To-Kill plant subscription box: $20.47 (£15) a month at Barry's Cactus Club
Each box contains a hardy mini cactus or succulent, a unique ceramic pot that has been designed especially for your plant, a collector’s card with fun facts and care tips for your plant, plus some surprise goodies. Also, delivery is completely free.
For just a $20.47-a-month (£15-a month) subscription, you can have a different potted mini cactus or succulent plant delivered to your door.
The monthly subscription box is free to deliver. Each box contains a hardy mini cactus or succulent, a ceramic pot that has been designed especially for your plant, and one that you won’t find on the high street.
The box also contains a collector’s card with fun facts and care tips for your plant, plus some surprise goodies such as sassy pencils, beeswax wraps, salad, and plant seeds, air plants, and flower bulbs - to name but a few.

Some fans cannot wait to get their hands on their new prickly friend. One wrote, 'Can't wait for my first box' and another put, 'Woop! I honestly get excited about this every month now.'
First-time subscribers also receive an additional welcome kit that includes cactus food, a gold cactus enamel pin badge, and a collector’s annual to store your cards in.
Sign up for a Barry's Cactus Club monthly subscription to build up your cacti collection, or if you're not sure where you can put all your new blooms, you can also just order a one-off box.
