    Enjoyable

    Such a tiny little package when it arrived. But a good soaking brought them to life. I've had them a month or more now and find them quite enjoyable.

    Customer Service, A+++++

    Posted by Dick on 10th May 2016

    The first plant I received was not packaged well, was rather small and didn't arrive as quickly as the others plants that I had ordered at the same time. It died immediately. I gave the seller a low rating. Immediately the seller reached out to me, personally oversaw the packaging of a new plant and sent it to me at no additional cost. I was impressed with the quality of service and care for the customer.
