Very nice & healthy rarely offered Ferocactus. Expertly packaged and fast shipping as always!
It's great the way they ship plants in their pots, with rubbber bands and plastic bags holding in the top dressing and soil. Even though I usually use my own soil, I don't have to scramble and pot up my plant right away. I can just leave in the pot it's in until I get time.
This was a beautiful colored cactus. Very naturally green! Very healthy. You can tell it’s quality. My son loves it.
Plants exactly as presented. Shipped very quick and arrived well packed. Totally recommend!
