Both are correct but the plant will look different with different light intensity.

Under low medium light, the plant is a bit wider, leaves are more defined with longer interleaves, uniform lime green color.

Under high light, the plant has much denser leaves, brunches better, yellow in color with pink / burgundy under leaves.

The intensity and the amount of red is directly proportional to the light intensity. Under very high light most of the plant is deep purple, almost black in color. The color will also cover both sides of leaves.

aka Hippo Grass, pleasant smell when cut, used in Thai chai.

You can always request Post Office Hold.
Do Postman drivers have AC for the cargo or just for the driver?

If it's shipped USPS Priority, like most sellers do on TPT, coast to coast, then it's on an airplane. Then it's short hauls to sorting center and then to the PO, and mostly at night. If the plants are shipped late on Thursday then the chance is even higher. Most of the time you get to pick your package on Saturday. Worst case it's sitting in a temp controlled PO over the weekend.

That's the reason I prefer shipping plants long distance in extreme weather then one state over.

Most of the issues in hot/cold weather happen after drop off. If a package is left all day outside it's gonna get messed up. After someone is available to take it in or the drop off is indoors your usually good 95% of the time. Also insulating with several layers of newspaper helps as well.
