Most Pleased

Excellent packaging, totally stable, not one loose piece of medium. Was initially doubtful with the cost of shipping but it arrived in 3 days in perfect condition, so it is definitely worth the little premium price. Bishops Cap was healthy with very good color! Let it stabilize for 2 weeks & transplanted today in it's own decorative pot. Looks happy & handsome. Will use Planet Desert with confidence in the future.

Great plant but very few roots

The plant looks good and healthy. Exactly as pictured. When I started the repotting process, I always check the condition of the roots, this plant had very few. I put it in a small pot until it gets established again. The cactus will recover fine. If this happens to you, please remember to water according to the roots. If there are very few roots, water very sparingly, or you will cause rot to set in. I love this company and understand that this was completely unknown to them. They ship in the pot. I will ALWAYS be a returning customer!

Perfect. Very Happy!

First time customer and very satisfied! I ordered 3 cactus including this one. I was apprehensive about getting live plants shipped across the country, however I am very pleased to say it went very well. They were well wrapped and packed. Arrived very quickly as well. They all shipped on Monday 6/22 and arrived safely to my home in KY on 6/24. Cactus is healthy and vibrant. I am so happy I found a source for my cactus addiction, and will be a return customer for sure.
