Dead on arrival
I have been looking for a nice Wandering Jew plant for several months and they were either too small, over priced or both. Then I spotted this gem and thought my dreams had come true. Boy was I wrong. I was. skeptical about buying live plants online, but was encouraged by the Positive feedback given other plants sold by this seller. I was so excited when the plant arrived a week early but when I opened the box, I almost cried. The plant was much bigger than pictured put had been crammed into a box that was far to small. When I lifted the plant out and shook it, a third of the stems were broken and fell off. The remaining plant looked withered and all the leaves were drooping. I have tried to resuscitate this baby but nothing seems to work. I even tried to propagate some of the broken stems but there is still no sign of life. I purchased other items from this seller and I’m hoping for better luck with them.
