Comment: Bought 3 at a good price. Product arrived in great condition due to excellent packing. All three arrived with a nice bunch of leaves and appeared to be ready for planting. It's only been a day or so since planting, but all three are doing well in 95 degree Georgia heat.

Comment: The plant was healthy and well packaged. It took 2 transplants to figure out the best soil environment for this one. It struggled a bit in the first pot but appears to be doing better in its 2nd one.

"Great Product"
