Nice plant

The plant I received looks exactly like the one pictured for sale on Planet Desert's website. This plant was one of a group that was my second purchase from Planet Desert. Like the first shipment this order came very well packaged for the rigors of the shipping services. DP wraps each plant with a plastic wrap around the base of the plant and down the pot securing it with rubber bands. Then each wrapped plant is wrapped in packaging paper to keep everything together. The result is when you get the plant all the dirt and stones and plant are still in the pot. Some other companies don't do this and often the shipping services have so abused the box that the plants come out of the dirt .
