      Wishlist Plant Arrived in Excellent Health

      I fell in love with this plant and the contrast it created with my dark substrate immediately. For the price I feel like the amount that arrived was generous and would absolutely order more. I took a risk ordering in the winter months, but luckily the temps held and everything arrived without issue. However, the packaging the plants arrived it would not hold up if you were ordering to a location where below freezing is the average air temp. Perfect for minor fluctuations, not great for anything extreme.
