First order with this company. Also, last order with this company.
Ordered six Amorphophallus konjac tubers advertised as "6 inch rounds" on their website.
Received six packages of tiny bulblets, averaging the size of a marble. Largest two bulblets were the size of a half-dollar, the rest considerably smaller. thus, marble-sized average.
Bought seven A konjac tubers from another vendor for the same amount of money. Averaged three-and-one-half pounds PER TUBER, and were uniformly FIVE-AND-ONE-HALF to SIX INCHES in diameter...they had to be shipped in two boxes. Healthy bulbs, too, just coming off a bloom cycle.
Only reason I'm not giving Dancing Oaks the big "N" rating: their customer service rep was easy to work with re: a billing issue; and even though I am tremendously disappointed with the product, their management did perhaps make it a bit easier to swallow by adjusting down the sales and shipping prices from the original [exhorbitant, IMO] amounts.
