    Plant arrived with all leaves dropped! I think it was to long from shipment to delivery. At least it was not upside down like the last Crown of Thornes I ordered. I hope with a little TLC it will survive. For $47.00 I expected it to arrive in better condition.

    The plants arrived unharmed and were well packaged. Just a bit disappointed regarding the flower size. They looked a lot bigger online. The plants are a bit over priced for their size.

    I received my Crown of Thorns as promised. I was worried about it the first day because it had lost quite a few leaves and just as many were yellow. I think it was the stress of shipping. I watered it thoroughly and in 2 days it was as pretty as the pic I received before shipment.

    Smaller than I expected
