LIVE PLANT Care upon arrival

Immediately and carefully unpack your tree in such a way to avoid damaging the foliage, branches or root ball. It is suggested that you mist and water the plant slightly to allow the plant to recover from transport shock. Some plants respond differently to being shipped and may defoliate but will recover. If transplanting to another container, choose a pot that is just slightly larger than the rootball and use a fast draining soil, such as cactus or palm mix unless another soil product is indicated, unglazed clay pots work best for container growing. Water your tree to keep evenly moist but never wet or soggy.  Check website for in ground planting instructions and ongoing care.
