Good quality plant!!

The plant is big (bigger than similar plants I received from other companies). I am very impressed! Looking forward to receiving the other two plants I ordered.

Healthy Beautiful Plant

This plant arrived in a timely manner. It was a little beat up from the mail but bounced back quickly and is already getting new leaves and looking great.

Nicely shipped bulb

This plant was well shipped and was a generously sized bulb. I love this plant and use it as a backdrop for my back fence in partial shade. Everyone comments that they are beautiful.

Elephant Ear Plants

The plants were in great condition when received. I let them rest a day before potting them. They are happy and growing.

Baby Elephant Ears!

When this little Black Magic Colocasia plant arrived, it was looking a little bit bedraggled. I wasn't able to he home right away, but my husband removed it from the box, watered it, and set it in our garage overnight. A day after I planted it (two days after it arrived), the plant perked right up and started sprouting new leaves. Now, more than a week after its arrival, the plant is thriving. With lots of water, a few plant food "beads," and a spot in sun-dappled shade, and it's very happy! I guess the moral of my review is that even if a plant comes through looking a bit anemic, give it TLC for a few days, and it'll do great. I received fast service on this order, and my plants were nicely packed.
