Beautiful Plants!

I ordered 8 different plants somewhat hesitantly wondering if they would survive shipping. I was amazed at how well they were packaged. When I opened them up and set them out it seemed like they doubled in size. And they were blooming! Love it.

Great products

Both Begonia Plant and Petunia plants arrived as promised and were in perfect shape. Packaging was great, Begonia Plant already had a bloom. Had for a week now and both are thriving. This was my first experience with GrowJoy and am very happy

For Begonia lovers!

This Solenia Begonia was packed so carefully that not one leaf fell off. It came covered in red velvety textured rose shaped blooms. A very "rich" looking plant that if you love begonias, you are going to want to have!
