Very unhealthy plants
April 30, 2012
I was sent four plants and within a week they all died. I don't know if the problem is in the soil or maybe the odor from the burlap did something to the plants. I used the organic potting soil from this company to pot other house plants, now the plants are also getting brown spots. I hope I can replant them in a different soil to save them. W/S sent a refund for the plants. I have always been happy with purchases made there and was totally surprised at the poor quality of these plants.
Pros: none
Cons: died within a week.
