Pretty good experience

There was a delay in transit so the plants sat within a box for 5 days (USPS issue not Planet Desert). While they showed up dehydrated and a little beat up from transit, I was able to get them to bounce back after repotting and watering. The Peperomia lost a little baby growth off the main body, but otherwise its in great shape now!
