    Oh, the packing was great. I really like the was he secured the pot to the bottom of the box, to protect the leaves. Best packaging I've ever seen!

    I find it very amusing that we all post pics of Louis' packaging before the plant! HAHA!! That says something for sure....Maybe we need a HALL OF FAME/SHAME Forum for posting packing photos! lol...(I say this as I am getting ready to ship *my* first plant on Monday! I think GW has some pics of someone's dog playing in the packing material from RVO. Too funny!

    That crushed box would have really disappointed me--glad it was on the wrong side!

    Thanks for posting those, Lisa. Really appreciate it. May it bloom tall and strong for you!
