This is an extremely fragile plant, so we'll try our best to pack it very carefully with multiple layers of bubble wrap and peanuts, and the box will have fragile signs. However, we cannot control how USPS handle packages. Therefore please understand that we cannot offer replacement or refund if some leaves break during transportation! We're more than happy to share tips on leaf propagation, so please feel free to let us know if you have any question.
