Madagascar Palm Plant

It was great purchasing from Planet Desert for the second time now. Each experience has been great from the easy shopping experience, fast shipping and I cannot tell you how much care they put into packaging each item.

"Baby" Madagascar Palm Plant

It arrived packaged very well, and in great shape. It is now sitting outside, enjoying our 95 degree heat in Minnesota.

Healthy Plant!

Waited a few months to review so I could see some longer term results, and they have been great! Plant is happy and healthy with plenty of new growth. I even ordered mine during the dead of winter which was probably a bad idea, but I couldn’t resist. I added the heat pack but it was cold by the time I opened the box. Shipping was prompt though, took exactly the 3 days it said it would. The plant was pretty sad looking coming out of the box. That being said, I don’t think you could really do much better. The leaves were all pulled up and bundled, all the soil/rock was secured under plastic and rubber bands. The whole thing was then wrapped and padded. Interstate shipping is just guaranteed to be a rough time for a little box. I trimmed off the couple leaves that were damaged and gently bent the others back down a bit. Repotted and put it in a sunny window. 6 months later it looks fantastic!

Madagascar Palm

I felt the Madagascar palm I purchased from you were overpriced for such a small specimen. I will not order from you again.

nice Pachypodium lamerei

The plant arrived well wrapped and in pretty good condition. I was just a bit disappointed that it did not look like the one pictured on your website. It is a bit smaller and less full. I am looking forward to when the 8 inch plants are again available.
