Love this Palm!

I love this Ponytail Palm! It arrived in great shape and has been a beautiful addition to my bedroom!

Beautiful and packaged with great care

I love my ponytail. It’s so pretty and healthy and was packaged so carefully.


Wow, Wow, Wow where do I begin? The plant is absolutely fabulous, not only is it huge, it’s super cute! The packaging was really incredible. Wanda did such a fantastic job packaging up the Ponytail palm, there was not even a speck of soil in the box. It was wrapped in so many layers, from paper towels, to tissue paper, to heavy duty plastic sleeve, and a heavy duty brown wrapping paper. more bubble wrap! I could go on but you get the idea! If it took Wanda half as long to pack the plant as it took me to unpack it! Respect and thank you for the goodie’s that was very thoughtful and I do appreciated it. I can’t say enough good things about this vendor and the care they take with their plants. If I could give you more than 5 stars I would you deserve it!!
I have gotten a terrible case of Poison Ivy. That could only have come from the Ponytail Palm who’s leaves I diligently cleaned last night. Now I’m itching, have a rash all over my body. So be careful that Urushiol oil is viscous!!!


Arrived perfectly! Beautiful and bushy. Better than I expected!!!
