TAKING CARE OF YOUR NEW PLANT: Upon receipt, immediately soak in water for 2-3 hours then plant in your ideal location. Make sure to water daily, or as needed, if leaves look wilted and/or until it is established in it's new environment. Sometimes it is best to place in a 6"-8" pot of quality soil and let the root system get adjusted and strengthen, then transplant the hole pot of soil to your permanent location. Plants can get easily stressed when being relocated/shipped.
