Amazing, magical plants.

I hardly write reviews but these are amazing!!! Ordered St. Gaya and St. Bongso, perfect specimens upon arrival, healthy and beautiful as ever, mine even sat in the mail truck a little longer than expected and they were completely unbothered. These plants are truly mystical and unique. Ordered a Repti-Zoo ultrasonic fog machine for 70$ on amazon and looks like these lil ones are loving it.

I think we're good.

The plants arrived safe and packaged in paper and cardboard. I have 0 experience with these but the plants are nice and have good color. I'm growing outdoors and one got drenched yesterday so I had to repot it. It looked like it had settled in except for my blunder.

I won't know for a while if I can grow these plants but I can tell you now that the delivery was right on time and the plants were in good condition when they got here.

If I treat these kids right I think we're good

To soon to review plant

I would say it’s to soon to review the plant. The sellers are great plant arrived quickly and was packaged very well. They all have awesome advice on taking care of the different plants they sell. It is tiny but they also said these plants can take a while to mature. I am hopeful and excited. I would purchase from them again
