Excellent Service and Good Luck

Beautiful plant which unfortunately arrived broken. On notifying the nursery and providing photos, the nursery quickly issues a replacement plant. And because the broken plant had been in such good health, I managed to root the apical section and care for the broken stem enough to get it to resprout.
