Poor Conditioned Plants
I was excited to order for the first time with this company... but they initially sent me a dead plant. On the bright side, they sent me another...but only after I was met with two voicemails from their company phone line and unanswered emails I've sent beforehand. The plant I received for the 2nd time needed some serious TLC. Its been a few weeks since I received the 2nd replacement of the plant, but it's barely holding on. I'm disappointed in lack of communication and the plants I've received.
