I loved everything about my Perú & Mental House Plants. Once my order was placed I received tracking information and they answered all my questions promptly and were extremely patient when I changed my mind on the size of my shirt.
I was lucky enough to win my Perú & a shirt through a giveaway. I’m so glad I found Mental House Plants, I’ll definitely be sending my loved ones a plant or two.
My plant arrived in a timely manner, and very healthy. She has the most beautiful color to her and was ready for me to put in a decorative pot. She came with a bookmarker as well with a QR code on instructions for proper care.
