    I was initially skeptical of such a good deal but I forgot about these leaves in my mailbox for TWO DAYS and they were still in amazing shape! the smallest leaf I received was a little dehydrated and he might not make it but I totally assume responsibility for its likely demise. I received 4 different and really beautifully patterned leaf cuttings.
