The Rooted House Plants Arrived
Yesterday my Rooted house plants arrived. It’s a good thing Steve happened to be over here playing with Ivy so he could help me with them.
The house plants came in a big box. Once we got the box opened, we had to figure out how to get the four plants out of their sturdy and thick cardboard “nests.”
It’s been cold here. But there was a thermal plastic-type blanket around the inside of the box to keep them warm.
They were well wrapped and each section was bound in a way where the plants couldn’t come loose.
Once we got the four plants out of there (thank goodness for Steve’s long arms), we had to get the rubber bands off. That’s what was holding thick paper around the individual plants to keep any soil from spilling.
There was a little bit of soil spilled however. The FedEx guy that came in and plopped the box on the table apparently couldn’t read which end was supposed to be up.
Four Healthy House Plants From Rooted:
I immediately told myself I was going to have to order small plants instead of medium. Because these are bigger than I’d anticipated.
I’d wanted to put a few plants above the sink in the kitchen, but these four are too big to put there. So for now I have them on the vintage cart in my office.
I am pretty picky about house plants. But I have to admit that I couldn’t have picked better plants if I’d been in a nursery choosing them myself.
I Will Be Ordering More From Rooted:
I will definitely be ordering more house plants from Rooted. And I noticed that they sell herb plants as well. So I’ll be looking at those.
This was my test batch. I won’t have to worry now about someone taking me to the plant store. Then trying to get around once I get there.
I’ll just plan on ordering them from Rooted and have them come right to my door.
I’m going to have to get in touch with them before my second monthly mystery box is sent out. The one that’s on the way has a medium mystery plant. But I think I’m going to have to order small plants for the foreseeable future.
Isn’t it amazing how good they look right out of the box after being in a shipment for days? They sent a note saying if the order was in any way damaged, just to email them.
I do like their customer service, something that is often in short supply these days.
The plants are lovely and look so healthy! Great choice to order from Rooted! I agree the plastic pots are a wise choice – it really makes a difference in the weight – and they are stylish!! Enjoy your new plants and can’t wait to see the mystery plant!
Have you looked into an indoor hydroponic growing system? I have a friend that lives in a small condo who grows her own herbs in one. Amazon sells several.
are any of those ivy? I believe ivy is toxic to cats according to aspca and others. I wouldn’t want anything to happen to Miss Ivy!
WOW…those plants look amazing…esp. for being shipped!! Sure hope they will do well for you!!
They’re just beautiful.
Wow! The plants are beautiful. They’re so healthy looking. Now you know where you can order all your plants from and not have to worry about them arriving in terrible shape!
Yes, I do!
Beautiful, healthy plants! I’m glad you found a way to get some beautiful plants without worrying about how to get to a nursery.
It was a load off my mind. I feel like I have to ask for so much help. I just want to be as independent as I possibly can.
The plants look healthy & beautiful! I’m so glad this worked out well. Can’t wait to see your mystery plant! I would be excited since I love a surprise.
I’m waiting for it as I write this. It should arrive any time now.
Gorgeous plants! Amazing how good they look after being shipped by FedEx. Glad Steve was there to lend a hand.
I was surprised they looked so healthy after being shipped. I think they were shipped from Florida.
Holy Cow, I had no idea how beautiful and healthy these plants would be. Amazing. They will really brighten up any cloudy day.
UPDATE on African Violet: Looking pretty sad. I watered the proper amount, (there is a guide on the container that is “see through”) I added a teeny tiny, smaller than a pinch of Grow Food, so not over done for sure, and the leaves are drooping and looking like the end. I believe it is, and I’m giving up on it. I think it was too close to a goner for anything to help. Two years and nothing, think I’ll just get a pretty green plant like one of yours, and call it Happy! Thanks for sharing for your purchase!!
I’m so sorry about the African Violet. They can be finicky. Sounds like you gave it your all.
Enjoy your beautiful new plants!
I am enjoying them. I’ve now placed two in the kitchen. It’s why I wanted the blinds so I could let in more light.
Wow…cannot believe how beautiful these plants are!!!!They are huge ….and healthy…It is amazing they came across the country and survived…so glad ☺ 💕
I was so worried about them being shipped in the cold weather, but I needn’t have worried.
These are lovely. Healthy and fresh and look like you chose them yourself. Really encouraging. Thanks for sharing with us.
It is encouraging. One more thing I don’t have to worry about going out to shop for and asking someone to go with me.
The plants are beautiful. I’m glad you found a way to get plants delivered right to you ! Enjoy !
I guess you can get most anything delivered these days.
What fun! to have such nice plants arrive at your door! They’re gorgeous and ready for you to enjoy without the hassle of “shopping”.
When I was looking to go to the nursery, in my mind I was trying to figure out how many feet it would be from a car to the door. Then from the door to the house plants. Everything is so involved right now when it comes to me going out. Kasi took me to my bi-annual doctor’s appointment yesterday. Knee scooter and all. Glad to get that behind me because she doesn’t have much time to help me these days.
Oh my gosh! These are absolutely beautiful!!!!
I agree. I was really surprised.
Wow! They are beautiful, Brenda! I love all the shades of green you selected!
I love the different shades of green with plants.
Wow. Can’t believe they look that good after shipping. So healthy. And like the different shades of green. So lush looking. Fabulous.
WOW!!!! Those plants look really healthy. I’d definitely consider ordering from them in the future. Thanks for sharing and I can’t wait to see how you end up styling them.
They are beautiful…so full and with perfect leaves!
