    Q:Is the truck heated that the plant is delivered in?
    by|Jan 23, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello, Thank you for your inquiry—we package our plants in our patented boxes with double-wall construction and take preventative measures to avoid cold weather damage. The carriers which we use may or may not use heated trucks, that would be up to their discretion. Overall, whether or not a carrier uses a heated truck would depend on their own policies and equipment. Some carriers may have a fleet of heated trucks, while others may not have any. It would be important to check with the carrier directly if temperature control is a concern for your shipment. Best regards, Steve

          I received this plant in very poor condition and quality. I’ve been nurturing it and keeping a close watch on it. First of all several leaves were drying and dropping off the stems. Lots of dry stems. The leaves also had tiny holes throughout the plant. I’m still working on keeping it healthy.

          Rattlesnake Calathea
          The plant is beautiful. My issue is the packing and the delivery. The plant is healthy, no queation about that, but poorly packed. It was only wrapped in brown paper, norhing to support/keep the plant on the pot. Then, the plant waa delivered upside-down. Therefore the plant and soil came off the pot, causing stress to the plant. Couple of leaves got bruised, but luckily non broke. After observing for 3 days, it is thriving.

            Almost Perfect
            The plant itself is beautiful, why only 3 stars - I ordered the white pot and received the plant in a grower pot........ Paid $5 more and didn't get what I ordered. HD needs to send me a $5 gift card , that I can use towards a white pot.

                Plant is small and not healthy
                The second plant was very small and not healthy. I kept it hoping it would perk up once I planted it but sadly it hasn’t.

                    The features that stand out most are the two colors. What I like most about the plant are the two distinct colors. I have had the plant for about two months and it meets my expectations.
