okay so the first picture is my tree aeonium around 2 day...

okay so the first picture is my tree aeonium around 2 days ago. I ordered plants online for the first time from mountain crest gardens, the prices are great but obviously when a plant is stored in a cardboard box they’re gonna come out ruff. I did all my research before my package arrived so i was pretty much as prepared as they come. I put him in a new pot, watered him, gave him some sun and he’s like new! I’m so excited and so proud! πŸ₯Ή just thought I’d share some progress with yall. My bsf just got me into plants so this is like my first ever accomplishment with one of these guys and i couldn’t be happier! #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #NewGrowth #SucculentLove #PlantTherapy #NewPlantMom #BeforeAndAfter

Good job! It pays to be prepared!
Yay!! Love new plant mail!!
Beautiful! From what I’ve read on another grower’s website, they ship them dry to prevent root rot in transit.
I’m glad it’s doing better!
Way to goπŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½
Very nice πŸ‘
That is exactly how I felt too!! Nice job! I'm new to plants as well (about 6-7 months now)

It's so rewarding getting a messed up plant and making it beautiful!
@GreenThumbSC couldn’t agree more!
Mine came rough too ! I ordered for the first time, a week ago and they just came on Friday. Mine were super dry and even a little beat up. I have them planted and have watered them I sure hope they recover like yours did! Glad to see it’s possible. I knew it was but it’s always a little scary knowing it’s possible it may not bounce back. I repotted, gave some water, and have been acclimating them into the sun starting today.
@Alpha what a gorgeous baby!!! I have zero experience with that genus but I totally think that needs to change!!! So happy to know of a good plant supplier
@TidyTigerpear wow! Love your succulents, so pretty 🀩 i was worried about the same thing, i have 2 others that haven’t quite recovered like my tree aeonium but im not giving up. Where did you order yours from? I think apart of why some of my other ones are having such a hard time is bc of how long my package to come in. It was shipped, but didn’t arrive until 5 days later
@PoniesAndPlants yess! Mountain crest gardens is great, they respond very fast to all questions we well which is a total green flag. However, my package took 5 days to come in 😬 so a few of my other guys are even more beat up than this one. I think it’s just hit or miss, hoping i can get the others back to how they should be!
