At the moment i have a few very very large plants for sale. And some small ones as seen in the second photo.
Very pleased with the plants yet again I will continue to buy from Andy who goes the extra mile for his customers.
Ordered several plants , it’s never easy ordering blind online based pictures on a website , quick call to Andy and a long chat resolves all that and I thoroughly recommend doing that , plants I received were very high class and exceeded my expectations, Thank you Andy , will be ordering again soon .
Lovely plant arrived very well packaged
Thank you Andy for the air plants that I purchased from you. They arrived the next day (despite me ordering them late in the day) beautifully packaged. The plants are spectacular, a lot bigger than I expected and in perfect condition. Detailed Information on how to look after the plants was in the box. I will definitely buy again and tell my friends about Andy's air plants. I was also given a fantastic free plant, thank you Andy you are amazing.
