A little disappointing. The cactus arrived packaged perfectly. However, the cactus is only 1.5” tall and is yellow on the top third. I have potted it in cactus soil and placed it in a partially shaded spot. It hasn’t gotten worse fortunately within the past week. So now I’m waiting to see how well it will grow before winter.

cute cacti

My plants arrived safely tucked in their pots, gently wrapped to protect them and their handler. A packet of pebbles was included to top off the plants after re-potting. A really nice touch. Highly recommend Planet Desert
