I love my new succulents! They came well packaged and healthy! Will definitely be ordering again!
I love the packaging! I saved it to reuse. The baby looked perfect on arrival. It did lose a few lower leaves the next day but it did have to endure one night of single digits. Its doing great now and i can’t wait to see it get big! I was also impressed that the heat pack was compost! Highly recommend this company!
