Just wanted to leave a quick review for this little guy and Citlali! First of all, it's a pleasure shopping with Citlali. So, thank you for that :) Always a great selection of plants to chose from. After receiving your order, if something isn't quite right, given the chance she will do her best to make it right. I have purchased over 30 plants and I am pleased with my plants and overall experience. This little guy I got about a month ago and it has surprised me with beautiful double blooms. Just lovely. Cacti Market has become my go-to shop. Thanks again, Citlali, for an enjoyable experience :)
