USPS decided to batter these poor little plants in shipping and even left the box dumped on its side at my door. Despite this the little plants though a little woe begotten look like the are hardy enough to survive the abuse. I decided to keep them inside under a grow light while they recover. They have stretched out their remaining undamaged foliage and look like they will pull through fine. This is the first time plants I have ordered have been treated so. I am impressed by their sturdiness.
