USPS didn't handle with care

Cactus arrived healthy, but lost most of the spines on the top half in shipping. Thankfully, the cactus will grow much larger with time and the lost spines will become much less noticeable.

Great cactus and customer service.

Once again the Cactus from Planet Desert is fantastic. This Uebelmannia is a stunner and the customer service was fantastic. They went above and beyond to make sure my Cactus arrived safe and healthy. Couldn't recommend them any higher.
