Mail Order: What To Expect
Plants you receive by mail need time to adjust. Sensitive plants will arrive in Bunches (several stems or groupings of plants). Upon arrival, they may not appear lush but given time & proper care, they will flourish!
Simply place in water and plant will float freely.
Fertilization is typically not needed for Sensitive Plant as they take excess nutrients from your pond water. If needed, Microbe-Lift® Bloom & Grow™ can be used.
For best results, trim or prune as leaves and flowers begin to turn yellow or brown, remove them completely, discarding them to keep as much excess organic material out of water-body as possible.
In Zones 8 and lower, discard Sensitive Plant after the first hard frost.
What others are saying
"packaging not good"KATHY of Burlington, CO
I was leaving for a trip when the plants arrived. I quickly put them in a holding tank so they would have water. Several days later when I arrived home I was taking take of the plants. This plant was a tiny sprig in a plastic bag that must have blown out of the package when I opened it and I found it nearby, dead of course. Had it been in a more substancial package it would not have blown out of the box while I was tending the other plants.View entire review
