I originally got this plant a few months ago, when I first received it in the mail it was a little dried out looking and kind of damaged. I still kept the plant thinking that it would be fine if I just gave it a little water. Well, it did ok for a couple of weeks but didn't grow alot and parts of the leafs/stems kept falling off. Its leafs/stems were too weak, some how I think it was from watering it . And then few weeks later somehow it just pasted away one morning. I would also return this for the price of it! The shipping was as muchs the little dried up plant itself.Sebastian Ryba, New Jersey, United States, 2 years ago
