Received healthy and packaged neatly. However, was disappointed with the size of the cacti. It was so tiny. Love Planet Desert! I have had multiple orders and loved most of my purchases!

I didn't think it would be so small. I have found other sellers that will send potted plants as big or bigger.

We do our best when taking photos to get as much of the characteristics of the plant for customers to really see the beauty in them. This does require us to zoom in at times but try to leave the edges of the pot in so you can get a better idea of the size. But anytime you have any concerns you can contact us directly by email and we really aim for customer satisfaction so we have options for resolution.
