I bought 2 aloe vera plants. One came in just fine. The other came damaged, but it was not Home Depot's fault. It was damaged while shipping. Home Depot replaced my plant, no questions asked. The only reason I didn't put 5 stars for everything is because of the 4" pot that it comes in. It either needs to come in a bigger size pot with more dirt, or it needs to be a heavier duty 4" pot. Because the plant is so tall, the small pot is not large or heavy enough to keep the plant standing on it's own. It fell over a couple times on me, so I had to prop it against something until I switched it to a bigger pot. Otherwise, it's a great product!
Arrived in good form. Likes sunlight, low maintenance plant. The leaves do not wrap in a circle; they are parallel (on the same plane). Arrived with 8 leaves. Has grown two new leaves in the past month. Still growing at 10 leaves! Love watching it grow :)
The plant was received with one of the stalks broken and way too big for the pot it was in which meant the other stalks seemed about to break off. Also the plant did not seem to be in the best of health. I kept it because I did not want the hassle of sending it back. I saved the broken stalk for later use and transplanted the rest of the plant, it seems to be thriving but it is not the nicest looking plant. The stalks have dark blemishes.
