Thanks for the info PR-Giants! Much appreciated for everything!
Definitely no fault of your shipping or anything you did. You were wonderful to purchase from, the plant was very well packed, shipped quickly, and everything was quick and easy. My family in NM who received and forwarded the package for me took a week to get around to shipping it to me, and it was shipped via ground when they did. So it ended up getting to me a little under two weeks after you shipped it
I'm glad it's not harmed though!! I'll repot it today and do my best to orient the new growth vertically! Thank you again for the great plant and the advice. I really appreciate it!
