Just an update..
I did receive shipping notification from USPS for the tubes last Monday. I was really expecting them to be here yesterday after the holiday.. but still nothing as of today. ANY DAY NOW!! The day they arrive, is the day your plants will be shipped. Trust me, I want you to get them just as badly as you do. And no worries, ALL of the plants look as good as the day I got them. They are all quite happy in my HL conditions. Some are even putting up new growth!! I did keep one due to "losing a challenge".. but I kept the least flattering one. I wanted everyone else to get the cream of the crop, so to speak.
