    No doubt this was a healthy happy lovingly packed plant when shipped, but unfortunately we had an issue with cold weather (upper Midwest) but Em Stems was understanding and quickly resolved the issue! Worth the price if you are debating cuttings, rooted babies or a full 6inch pot, go with the pot, you won’t regret it! Will definitely be buying more of these gorgeous plants when the weather is warmer!!

    I don’t know how the seller did it (or i guess I do, some kind of voodoo with tape, gauze, and thermal bubble pack) but amazing care to detail in shipping and heating pack. Plants were immaculate upon arrival, and beautiful well established ones at that.

    I didn’t really know what to expect when I opened it, so getting to see the turtles made me so happy.

    I am so bummed this plant was in transit for 16 days. Of course no fault to the seller. Needless to say it arrived extremely sad and I’m not sure it’s going to make it. Here’s hoping to new growth in the near future.

    Surpassed my expectations

    Absolutely beautiful! Seriously, I wasn’t expecting such a nice plant. It looks like something you’d find in the image search of Google and go “well I can hope for something somewhat like that”. It’s since pushed out a new leaf and flourished, even though I had to emergency transplant it because I had a different plant start bringing in fungus gnats. I am 100% buying from this seller again!

    Glad to order from this shop

    Due to unfortunate mail circumstances, it took a while for the plant to arrive. However because the seller had wrapped it so carefully and well insulated, it came just fine!! The seller was responsive and helpful with advice on how to make my beautiful plant happy now that it’s made it home. I am glad to have ordered from this shop and will be happy to order again once the mail is a little less unpredictable! Thank you so much!!

    Plant wonderfully packed

    I was so worried with mail delays and cold temps this plant wouldn’t survive the 10 day trek it just took to get here. Plant was packaged wonderfully and it arrived safe and healthy.

    Will buy again

    The plant took 16 days to arrive which had me so incredibly worried. But it arrived in perfect condition, no doubt due to the care taken to prepare it for shipping. Will definitely be buying from here again.

    Plant came unharmed

    Absolutely amazed! It’s mid-winter in AK and I was terribly worried that it wasn’t going to make it. After buying I asked if Soule would add a heat pack and they agreed. The seedling was packaged perfectly and came unharmed! Love it!

    Best deals by this shop

    StemEm IS the only place you should purchase from. Idk what magical water she has but her plants are happy, stunning, and worth every cent - and are a steal at her prices! You honestly cannot find better plants or prices. Unbelievable!!

    Superb seller

    Great seller. Superb packing, the plant is very lush and overflowing. Great quality and will for sure would buy from again!

    Very well-packaged

    Thank you so much, Emily! Best plant mail I’ve ever received. The pot was so carefully wrapped, with 3 layers of soft padding and a perfectly-sized box with no wiggle room. Turtles are notoriously difficult to ship and this packing job knocked it out of the park! Plus, the little personal touches in the packaging were just adorable. The plant itself is happy and plump, as beautiful a specimen as I could ask for.

    Definitely will buy again

    These turtles came in great condition. Yes, a few leaves broke off, but that's completely normal given the distance these babies traveled. I cannot be happier with the packaging and the seller. Thank you very much. I would definitely buy it again.

    Thank you, Emily.

    I purchased SoT cuttings on the 3rd. There were some issues regarding supply but Emily was great with reaching out and clarifying the issue, as well as offering a refund. I opted to wait and I'm so glad I did! I eventually received it on the 26th. As instructed I placed as much of the cuttings to soil, and for the most part they've been in a South West-ish facing window THRIVING. They look great less than two months later. Very glad to have done this, first time purchasing cuttings and I'm excited to purchase more in the future. Thank you, Emily

    Arrived perfectly despite delays

    Very healthy plant

    My package was lost for 3 weeks by USPS, but the Turtles were well packed and still alive when I finally received them! They were obviously very healthy before shipping to be able to survive the long trip.

    Plant was in very good shape

    My string of turtles plant was in transit for about two weeks which is out of the seller's control. The plant itself had loose soil and a couple of turtles fell off but overall the plant was in very good shape. I've had her for about 2 weeks now and she is thriving. I would recommend this seller
