Further information on your plant

All plants are measured from the bottom of the nursery pot to the tip of the plant and if a height is specified, this is an approximate height, not set in stone. As all plants are living things, they will vary in size throughout the year, and we do our best to give a guide as to the size you can expect. If in doubt drop us an email And lastly, minor flaws in the leaves might be present and will not be covered for compensation. It's worth noting that plants naturally age like people and are rarely perfect.
