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.
