About the Maifanitum Stones

Maifanitum Stones are versatile granular soil recognized by experienced gardeners. As a naturally occurring material from volcanic eruptions, they possess porosity, are lightweight, and are soft. Our Maifanitum Stones, sized 3-6mm, are preliminarily cleaned of dust and can be directly used for top dressing small potted plants like succulents, aloe vera, and cacti. They are believed to contain trace elements that help improve soil quality and purify water sources, benefiting succulent growth.

How to Use Maifanitum Stones

Succulent Soil Addition: Adding Maifanitum Stones to soil aids drainage. We recommend mixing 50%-70% Maifanitum Stones into succulent potting soil to reduce the risk of root rot.

Succulent Soil: Some avid succulent enthusiasts even prefer using Maifanitum Stones for planting succulents. Although this inorganic material is low in nutrients, it offers good drainage, allowing better control over succulent shape and color. Directly planting succulents in Maifanitum Stones is generally not recommended as it may not be conducive to succulent growth.

Top Dressing: With a naturally rough texture and golden hue, Maifanitum Stones can be used as a top dressing to adorn succulents. Their super-lightweight nature exerts minimal pressure on succulent roots and prevents soil splashing during watering.

We pack all shipments by hand. 

We have many years of experience shipping live succulents and cactus plants. We pay close attention to packing and have developed an expert shipping method. All succulents are packed and protected with polypropylene cotton (this is a stuffing used for dolls). We find this is the most effective material for protecting live plants while in transit. It is important to us that you are able to Keep going and Keep growing without any stress about the quality of the product or packaging.

Shipping Speed

In general, it takes 3 to 10 days for plants to arrive after you place your order. All orders will be shipped out 48 hours after you place them. We ship the orders on work days(from Monday to Saturday) and all year round. In normal conditions, it will take 3-10 days for you to receive the package. Estimated shipping times are offered as needed.

HOLIDAYS: During weeks in which a holiday occurs - Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, etc. - shipping may be delayed until the following week.

EXTREME WEATHER NOTICE: The Next Gardener reserves the right to hold shipments during storms or periods of extreme heat or cold. This is to ensure your plant does not suffer while it is in transit.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.

Sorry. No International Shipping for now!!!
