Once your order ships, we can not be responsible for carrier delays. While we are sure to carefully package our plants for safe travels, we cannot control any potential damage that may happen in transit. Some minor cosmetic damage and leaf loss is normal and is not cause for alarm - plants often take a little time to adapt to their new environment. 

To better ensure your plants successful journey, we recommend selecting short transit times.
