    Very cool looking plant.

  4. Kyoko (verified owner)

    It was the happiest, healthiest plant of the three I purchased at the same time. Also some question with the soil since it retains water poorly and whatever water I put in comes straight out of the drainage holes in the side. But the plant itself is lovely!!!

  5. Trey (verified owner)

    Much bigger than expected!! Looks beautiful right out of the box. About 2-3 days after receiving, a ton of leaves have turned yellow and fallen off (soil was quite moist when it arrived). So I will continue to monitor in the days coming.

  6. Aleasha M. (verified owner)

    Gorgeous plant well packed and shipped. Way bigger than expected. Loved that I got a picture of my exact plant when it was shipped.

  7. Patricia J Shaw (verified owner)

    I like the plant but thought it would be fuller.

  8. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I really like my new plant. It was wrapped very well. Fast delivery too, ill order some more plants from PlantVine.

  9. Tammy W. (verified owner)

    WOW!!! It came well packaged and healthy. There were no pests and the roots are great. I love this nursery and highly recommend. I really love that they send pictures of the exact plant you are getting sent. Great customer service.

  10. VERONIQUE P. (verified owner)

    Overall pleased with my plant. I like that PlantVine takes the time to handpick your plants. They are properly packaged to prevent damage during shipment, and they stand behind their products. It was a pleasure doing business with them, and I have since recommended PlantVine to friends and family, and have also placed another order with them.
