Great Plant/Delayed Shipping

This plant is healthy, decent size for its species and in overall excellent shape. I have a large collection of rare succulents and am delighted to have this one; it is sitting happily with its relatives out in my summer plant enclosure. I suppose we have to expect some delays and foul-ups with shipping, and after many months of excellent service from the USPS, I got my heart-stopping experience. I got messages saying the shipping was delayed and "will be shipped"--3 days earlier than the delay message, then finally the package came on a day when the "informed delivery service" told me I had no packages arriving. For years I've been getting plants from CA, ARIZ and FLA in an average of 3 days. This one took a week. The issue is made worse by the huge uptick in 'porch pirates' in my neighborhood, who fearlessly come up and take things from the mailbox and porch. Thus I spent many days glued to the front door. Thanks to Planet Desert's packing--in pot with lots of tape and rubber bands-- the plant arrived in great shape. Planet Deset folks, please note your packing is awesome and vital to the survival of your stock!
