I ordered this plant from proven winners along with other 10 plants over month and a half and the plant won’t grow past the point i received it on. I water them daily. I also bought some from Home Depot and those are much better and cheaper. There it was 3 for the price of 1 here. To my surprise the ones from Home Depot were just the bulbs and are bigger than the one I got from proven winners, a plant that was already to be grown a bit. I also had a second package that was delivered to me but was not found when I got home. I called proven winners and they wouldn’t assist me with that anymore, said it was a matter for the police now. I’m a little too disappointed to have ordered over $300 in plants and I can’t even tell they made a difference in my garden. I was so looking forward to my garden but this has made me so disappointed. Don’t buy online, I recommend going to a nursery and picking out healthy plants on your own.
