I was surprised at how well this one traveled. It's very pretty and easy to transplant into a larger pot using gardening gloves.
Love this desert rose but it came covered in dirt. Will need some tlc
I am so happy with my purchases! Everything was beautiful and very carefully packaged to avoid shipping damage.
I am so happy that I ordered this cactus. It looks just like the photo. Can't wait to see it bloom! Great wrapping and care for traveling as well.
I received a quite large plant, different than any cactus I had ever seen. It’s densely packed with small cactus tubes, in a mound. Attractive. Should bloom with hot pink blossoms all over.
