So apparently I didn’t read the reviews before purchasing….The plant arrived in great condition BUT this and the astrophytum I ordered were tiny plants potted in way too big of pots. Since listings are done by pot size it seemed a bit shady to list them that way. Definitely would not have paid this price in person but that’s what I get for ordering online. Passed up a fist size astrophytum in my city that was the same price as the tiny one I ordered from here because I had not yet received my order. Womp womp. Lesson learned.
I don't know where to begin! This is AMAZING! I will start by saying I collect cactus. Out of many online experiences that went incredibly bad I had lost all hope to finding a good online shop. NOT ANYMORE PLANET DESERT TO THE RESCUE! it quickly arrived. they wrapped so well not even a pebble rock was out of place! These cactus were stunningly beautiful!!! My photos won't do them justice! Some had beautiful flower stems just ready to open! Amazed!
I'd give a million stars if I could!
❤️ The newest, forever Planet Desert top fan!!!! Happy growing! ❤️
I received my brain plant in just a few days. It was packaged with care, along with other plants I purchased. I am always happy dealing with Planet Desert and will continue to purchase plants from them !!
