I would not be on here today if it weren't for the fact I recieved a box of plants today. I'm not feeling well at all, but the plants are here and need to be taken care of, so I thought it would be rude not to post the status for the senders sake. Thank you O

So, these plants arrived 4 days past the expected arrival date. Dealing with an etremely rude head manager at the post office while very sick...making multiple trips back and forth to the post office. Trying to get someone to look into why it's not in my hands...and finally I get my package. Smashed, partially opened and soaking wet!!!!




Doesn't look good does it!? Expecting the worst...I take the package home and lay down to rest for a minute. I really am very sick. Ugh....

Sooooo...to be continued.

Get well first ... but thank you so much for posting the pictures.

Interesting: 7 days from CA to AK, in sub-zero and couple of plants don't look too happy to me, but the rest...

I did use a bit of black magic: the girls at PetSmart let me use their O2 (? whatever gas they add to a bag with fish). I added just a tiny bit of it to individual bags but as much as I could keep inside to the bigger bags. Or maybe having the girls help me out after hours did the trick. Never underestimate the power of the feminine touch Having friends in the right places does not hurt either

Cool new plants- they look good even for such a journey. The post office can be a nightmare-I once had a kordon breather bag break and water was leaking out of the box, they wouldn't deliver it and made me come in and open it in front of them. Then they scolded me for packing them poorly, even though these fish were packaged by the aquabid seller who sent them! I just got some S. repens as well recently-it could easily become my new favorite plant.
-Get well soon!
