Sappige was founded by Jeanne Simchick, who developed a passion for succulents when she included them as a therapy modality to treat children and adults in her work as a Horticultural Therapist. Her designs highlight the beauty of each plant, complimented by the style of each container.
After a visit to South Africa and learning that most succulent plants are native to the area, Simchick decided to name her company Sappige, which is “succulent” in Afrikans. The company is based in Miami, Florida where, despite being a tropical climate is very conducive to growing all types of succulent plants.
