Love the love you give your plants before they arrived. Happiest plants I’ve seen in a while, giving me high confidence to their success in my office space. Well done end-to-end.

Beautiful plant, great service
I love a Fiddle Leaf Fig like everyone else on the planet, but needed something a little less sensitive and fickle. Enter the Zanzibar Gem. A description I read somewhere called it “hardy and undemanding” and I was sold. My plant arrived on time (across the country, no less) and the packaging was an engineering marvel. The ZZ plant, pot, and stand are beautiful (though not cheap, I got the big one!) and I’m already thinking what other corner or table top in my home could use a little green. All around great experience!
