Beautiful Basketball Specimen

In this review, I would like to address packaging. Plants are placed in a small plastic bag covering the pot with the plant specimen remaining uncovered. The bag is secured by four rubber bands which hold things securely for no loss of soil material when shipping. No mess when unpacking. The bag is then wrapped in off-white market paper and folded securely around the plant and pot. The specimen is then placed in an appropriate-sized cardboard box and shipped to you. Each plant comes with a soil insertable plant tag already printed in the plastic bag. Most efficient and clean method of securing and shipping plant material I have witnessed. Highly recomend.
