Plant Only: 8" Bird of Paradise - Not currently in bloom so it will be a mystery if you get white or multi! Loves a bright, sunny spot but will be happy in high to low light conditions. Keep the soil moist but not soggy. Toxic to pets. Minimal stock available so grab one while you can! Toxic to pets.
Great delivery service, arrived a day early and the all plants were beautiful. I bought a total of 4 plants, two of which I purchased pots for. The potted plants seem to be doing ok but the other two (bird of paradise and autograph plant ) have sadly been isolated and bagged in a separate room because even after two wash outs the fungus gnats are still there :( . With that being said, I would recommend/ suggest to maybe only order plants with a pot. I’m thinking it gives them the opportunity to inspect the plants before sending out.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry that it has been less than spectacular.
We are a small team of 5 that fusses over all of our plant babies (potted or not) but sometimes, nature has her own plan and moves faster than we can. Pest prevention is part of our care routine but despite our best efforts, nature find a way. It sounds like you have the situation under control (isolating them was a great call) but we are happy to share some tips on how to eliminate the gnats if you'd like. Feel free to shoot over some photos to email@example.com so we can accurately assess.
Thank you once again for your order and we hope you'll give us another try when ordering plants in the future.
The Chive Team
