The product arrived safely. It was wrapped really well, had careful instructions and easily transferable to a pot. The only negative I would have to say would be the cosmetic issues on the cactus but that is expected. Overall, I’m super pleased with my cactus.
I’m impressed. My foot high Saguaro arrived as promised … so well wrapped in layers of bubble wrap, carpet padding, tape … no damage from its long trip across the continent. My Terra cotta pot with inside diameter of 12 inches was just the right size. I felt like a surgeon peeling away the layers of protection, not one spine showed damage (thank you, UPS, as well). Now begins its history in its new home.
My plan is to bring it indoors when daily temps drop below freezing. Otherwise it will live on my deck with southern exposure & protection from the VA rains (when rain threatens, a 30 gal steel trashcan as a roof should do the trick). It brings with it fond memories of birding trips to southern AZ. THANK YOU!
