Great for the first-time grower.

    Healthy weird plants!

    Posted by Mark Morris on May 14, 2021

    The plants arrived in beautiful conditions and packed well. Surprised at how big they already were. My plants seem to be getting comfortable with their new environment and locations. They have been in my seeding area under grow lights all day and I have only watered with tap water. I know it’s says not to but our water here is not hard and all my house plants love it too. Only one or two traps have died back and they are munching on my little gnats and fruit flies in the nursing area. My son loves and is very curious about plants and these are great for teaching. Super much better than the ones in the stores.

    I ordered a couple of these and I live in Denver. USPS left them in their van overnight when it got really cold and it killed them. They were replaced immediately and the replacements that arrived looked amazing and they are growing so fast. I will definitely be doing repeat business with these guys. Thanks again!!

    The plant arrived in perfect condition. Your expertise in packaging is apparent. Then my cat decided to eat all but two of the branches. It is growing three new branches.
