Healthy and Happy Plant!

My Aloe Distans is very healthy and happy! It arrived in excellent condition and just as pictured on the website, which is not always the case with other companies, but Planet Desert offers exactly what they are selling. I am also very pleased with the packaging and shipping of their plants, because they arrived in perfect condition.
