It was ok. I live in ga. And it came from ny. It was fair, the plants got over heated in shipping. I'll buy again. Just first time purchase.

hornwort 3 bunches - good plant purchase, watch out for hitchhikers!

hornwort was good, some brown spots but overall healthy. unfortunately it came with pest snails :( Still a good buy though- came in a thermal insulating package with an ice pack, which I appreciate.
