I am about to place another order since the first order was so awesome

This plant is growing surprisingly fast. Already has a bunch more big healthy leaves. I was surprised that it arrived in such good condition having to ship it in a box with the big leaves it has. But it was protected very well. You can’t even tell now that it was shipped wrapped up in a box. I really like the pink color it has in it as well

Large leaves didn’t get damaged during shipping

Arrived safely and without damage even with the big leaves on it. They somehow found a way to get it to fit and ship still in the nursery pot safely wrapped, but with the leaves still protected enough as well. I have seen pics of this one when it gets older and I can’t wait. It’s an amazing looking plant with the unreal looking neon pink colors mixed in with it. I’ve noticed it’s growing quickly. The soil is getting dry quicker and more leaves keep coming out already. Cant wait until it gets big. I’m going to have to place another order since I’m very happy with this one, and they have so many others I can’t find locally like this plant.

Halthy but expensive!

I am growing succulents to replace the plants lost due to a hard freeze! Wit the postage the small plants are expensive!

Vivid Pink Thing

Another new specimen for me to grow... I don't know exactly how it will develop, but the plant sent was already vivid pink-ribbed and I eagerly await to see the growth pattern. Euphorbias are always a favorite and never fail to intrigue! This plants looks kind of like a desert rose with its foliage, only showier!
