    What kind of plants? Best thing you can do is just make sure they are in their pots properly, water them and get them cleaned up. Give them a week or two to recooperate.

    Sounds like it will be just fine. They always look a little stunned when you get them in the mail. Just let it be and it will bounce right back. By the way, make sure you use distilled or rain water (Or water filtered with reverse osmosis),

    Good luck and welcome to the forums!! Ask about anything you're not sure of. That's what we're here for!

    Yeah, best way to clean up the plant is just sprinkle water over the leaves to brush the dirt off. Just make sure you use the right water and read all the posts in the VFT section.

    The plants they send are pretty hardy, if you take care of it properly by next year you'd be surprised how much it grew!
