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
