“Two Plants were ordered, which are actually very well-rooted cuttings, as is said on the description of the store for something similar to 75.00, plus 3.00 for a heat pack. The best part: the heating pack was huge and still warm, and the plants were each at least 6 inches tall each, well branched, and had full-sized leaves on them. They had roots that were beginning to escape the bottom of the pots! I harvested some of the large leaves, and pinched to promote adequate branching. They were GORGEOUS, not wilted in the slightest, no brown marks or damage. Overall, it was a truly exceptional experience, and have no problem endorsing their site, given their customer service and quick turnaround alone. I hope people looking for a reliable ordering site find this arena ethnobotanicals review helpful.”
