This is a new plant

This is a new plant to me and a new form (clippings). It arrived very green and healthy but it was all suck together by the clear gel. Because it was clippings it was hard to separate the plants off and get the gel off. It didn't come with instructions explaining how to do it so I just gave it my best shot. Other than that, I'm pleased with my purchase.


I have purchased several times from this company and it has ALWAYS been a first class superb product. The delivery is always fast and on time I have actually received products a day or two ahead of the promised delivery date. I will ALWAYS look to this company FIRST whenever I need anything else
