I was expecting something small in a 4" pot, but this Ruby is a good 12" tall and well-developed! Super happy with this purchase.
I purchased a ficus from my wishlist for such a great price from this website along with a few other plants as well. I was happy with it being so small bc I'm limited on space at the moment but wanted this little tree to grow with me in life. To my surprise when I opened the package it was a bit larger than I expected but I wasn't mad at that either. I received every one of the 5 plants I ordered in the same box and no dirt spilled out anywhere. Plus I love how they use they packing peanuts that you can dissolve in your sink, my kids just think those are the coolest thing ever. I see some in the comments complaint about packaging waste but I had to mention they use those kinds of packing materials that are better for our environment. 👍 All of my plants are healthy and have been thriving, especially the beautiful ficus I purchased. If you're interested and reading this as well, I recommend you purchase from here as well. I even sent plants to my 2 sisters who live in 2 different states to introduce them to this awesome website bc I knew just mentioning someone and sending a link was not enough. They're both hooked now too!
It’s easily a foot tall and came VERY healthy and pest free. I have absolutely zero complaints!
Great healthy plant - doing well and growing large months later!
Came in perfect condition, and I have a new leaf unfurling already!
