New, but doing well

I received this pretty recently. It was in great shape, has been planted, and is doing well.

Worst plant of the 3 orders I placed.

I purchased 3 different Delosperma (Ameytist, Ruby, & Peridot) from this company. The Ameytist plant arrived in not very good condition and was the worst shape one I received. After some TLC, still appears to not be thriving. These three delospermas are not thriving like my other ones from different retailers. I have reached out to the company to no avail.

Nathaniel, we are sorry to hear of the condition of your plants. Please give us a call at 888-907-4769 and we will get some replacement plants headed your way. GrowJoy

Delosperma Ice Plant-Jewel of the Desert Amethyst

I ordered three of the Deslosperma - Amethyst plants and they all arrived very healthy and intact from shipping. Unfortunately, my decision to plant them in a location that has an automatic water schedule was probably not the best decision. I couldn't change the schedule since there were other plants and a tree located in the same bedding area. So I moved them to their own container where I can treat them more as the succulent they are. They are already looking happier! No blooms yet, but I'm sure I'll see them soon. Very pleased with GrowJoy - their shipping process and customer service cannot be beat!
