Leaves were damaged

Hello, I can only imagine that this plant is tough to ship. When mine arrived, the leaves were damaged and I lost about half of them. I'm babying the plant to give it the best chance of making it. I'm sure it will be fine in the long run.

Exactly as expected!

Great little plant, arrived exactly as shown in the photos, minus the inevitable few bruised leaves. It was packed very well and is happily soaking up sun now!
