Plant showed up in perfect condition. Ordered not today!

Great shape

The plants arrived in great condition and were easy to separate and plant. I have also learned never to use USPS for anything that's alive, because they are always late. I will buy more plants from APF in the future

Order came in a very timely manner - all 3 bunches are healthy and have been awesome additions to my carpeting areas. Definitely recommend!

Fast shipping, healthy plants

With all the negative publicity about the USPS, I thought my order would take over a week. Within 4 days I had my order from California to Wisconsin. My plants looked very healthy and were planted immediately. I had watched some YouTube videos on how to separate and plant as you can see in the picture.

This is my fourth time ordering and I continue to be impressed with the quality and speed of service.
