The plants came a little dry, and the peanut cactus was bent over from being dry, but within 24 hours all the plants, including the cactus, were looking fabulous! The only issue I've had so far is one one my succulents died after one mon. I'm pretty sure it was due to root rot, and not because of a lack of quality from succulents box. I hope I continue to get the fantastic variety in my succulent box for the rest of my subscription. And I love the cacti I have received so far!!
