5 of 5 Awesome plant. July 25, 2019
Reviewer: Sean M from LaVista, NE United States  
The plant arrived completely different than how I expected. First off, it was much taller than I thought it would be, so keep that in mind. Secondly, it was a long division with about 7 leaves in a perfect row (not so good for potting). HOWEVER, neither of these things were bad in any way, as it still ended up fitting perfectly into my vivarium.

To start, the packing was great. The plant was given adequate room and was wrapped nicely to prevent it from moving around too much, and it arrived in just 3 days (shipped Monday, arrived Wednesday). The leaves are springy and appear healthy and the roots are well enough to promote new growth. The division I got even has a new leaf popping out of the end.

This was my first purchase through glass house and I am satisfied with it.
