According to their web site:
"Skychild Tropicals offers the LARGEST mail order specimens anywhere!" (gallon size plants advertised)
HA HA HA!
I ordered from them because I really, really wanted a Mandevilla "Tropical Dreams". Plus I ordered a Dipladenia sanderi just because I was placing an order and they had good shipping rates. Three weeks after ording, I received my box containing a rooted cutting of Dipladenia and a note stating that the Mandevilla was out of stock!!!!!
I will say that the Dipladenia was well rooted, but no way a gallon size plant as advertised. And no Mandevilla....I have never been so dissapointed with an order! If they had let me know the Tropical Dreams was out of stock, I would have canceled my order... Plus it burns me that they still have Tropical dreams listed on their web site as available.
