Our Story

👋 Hi, I’m Molly, and about 5 years ago, my sister (Alex) and I began collecting succulents.

Struck by the bright colour variations, symmetry, and resilience of succulents, we began propagating (multiplying) the plants, which led to building Canadian Succulents, which was originally a way to share our passion for succulents with our friends and family and pay for post-graduate school.

Canadian Succulents had always been a side-hustle, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced me to re-evaluate my teaching career. Because of my autoimmune disorder, I didn't feel safe going into my “real" job in-person each day, so I started spending evenings in the greenhouse after teaching, propagating plants and finding new ways to design with them.

The hard work paid off so much that I had the opportunity to focus on the business full-time, and have been focusing on growing Canadian Succulents ever since!

I am so grateful for the chance to direct all my energy to creating and sharing our succulent designs with our customers, and I hope these plants bring you as much joy and warmth as they bring me.
