  1. akhila.jayaprakash (verified owner)

    good plant

  2. Ashwin Prabhu (verified owner)

    About 50% of the stems had melted in the packet during shipping, but the remaining plants were strong enough to start growing back slowly. I would rather source this locally if available to avoid issues, but the plants are resilient enough to bounce back if provided sufficient light and gentle flowing water.
