Shipping is awesome. Plant not so much!

Aura Gift Shop on Jul 2021

The website states that the July box contained this plant: Philodendron Xanadu Large Plant: 6in Pot Mature Plant Small Plant 5in Pot Young Plant. This would have been a perfect plant for me. However, my box (the shipping and container was excellent) contained something completely different. I received a Cordyline Austalis. A plant that is rarely successfully indoors due to very specific lighting needs. It is generally sold as an outdoor plant here in Southern California AND a plant this size currently sells for 9.99 at Lowes and 10.99 at my local nursery. I could have bought the plant there and saved A LOT OF MONEY!
UPDATE: The seller contacted me right after I posted to review. They said they would send the correct plant APAP. They did just that and again I was very impressed with the packaging and their customer service. However, the plant I received this time had yellowing leaves with evidence of insects. It is also very small. I can easily purchase the same plant at my local garden nursery for a lot less money and in much better shape. For this reason, I have cancelled my subscription. I am sorry to say, it is just not worth the money.
