    This is an excellent price, especially when you consider the size of the plant you receive. Mine came well established with many large healthy leaves. This was one I wanted a long time, and I’m so happy I found it here. Beautiful

    WOW! I received this and it is beautiful! Wonderful packaging and is way bigger than expected. I hope I can keep it thriving. Thanks Steve’s leaves! Can’t wait to order again

    Such a gorgeous plant! They came perfectly packed and after unboxing, it was like a single leaf was not harmed. Definitely worth it. My dream plant crossed off 🙂

    Beautiful plant arrived in flawless condition. The iridescent blue color is unbelievable in person. Try turning off the lights and holding a flashlight level with your eyes, it makes the plant look just as blue as you see in pictures with a flash.

    My plant arrived in incredible condition. Such a stunner. Honestly the best condition I’ve ever received a mail order plant in. Great instructions on what to do when it arrives, too.

    I’m so impressed with how carefully this plant was packed. Every single leaf, even a tiny emerging leaf, arrived in NC in perfect condition. She’s resting atop pebbles and a little water in a small fish bowl to increase humidity. Going on 36 hours and she’s already displaying her peacock hue when under a light. She’s taller than expected.

    Apart from her red stems and the reverse of her leaves, she’s not very showy in broad daylight, but under bright light that blue iridescence in amazing indeed.

    I was very impressed with my begonia order. I thought I was going to receive a tiny plant and it turned out to be an incredible size with huge leaves.
