I recieved late May, the photo was taken June 25th. I had over 100 fans , while I was getting the place ready to plant them I put them in a bucket of water and some had to stay there for over two weeks. It didn't bother them at all....they just started blooming right there in the bucket! Very hardy, strong little plant!!
