Super cool plant!

This is a beautiful plant! It arrived safely, didn’t even loose any leaves in shipping! Arrived healthy and in fantastic condition, carefully and expertly packaged. The current weather conditions were very hot, over 95 every day, and the plants were in great shape. It’s just as described too. I’m Extremely happy with my purchase, the quality, and with the experienced customer service! Will definitely be ordering again. Thanks!!
