It was b packaged very carefully. Did not sustain any damage during shipping
When I received my green prayer plant I was so excited. I’ve been wanting one for a long time. I found the one here on Verdant Lyfe at just the right price. When it arrived here it was packaged beautifully. Many layers of protection. I’ve not lost a leaf yet. It has many leaves and is doing great. I’ll buy from Verdant Lyfe again and again.
