Amazing! April 2, 2018
Reviewer: Karina Richardson from BROOKLYN, NY United States  
Got it at a delayed time because of a winter storm but it was packaged so well that it was still in perfect condition when I finally got it. The cups that were there during shipping dried up and had to be cut but the plnt is producing many new ones already! Very happy with my purchase!!
