Wow - beautiful plant!

As always, plant is gorgeous and in great condition. The attached instruction sheets are invaluable in caring for my plants. I have bought multiple plants over the last 10 years from My City Plants and have not been disappointed. I finally learned how to care for my plants properly and they are thriving in my apartment.

Dear Susan,
Thank you so much for being our loyal customer for all these years and for your support. We truly appreciate your business!
May your plants grow happy and healthy!

Fun process, then an easy & professional delivery of an exquisite plant. Boom!

Woohoo! Happy Customer = priceless!
Thank you, Charles, for choosing My City Plants and for your feedback.
It means a lot!
May your plant grow happy and healthy.

Great selection, service and delivery!

I ordered 8 money trees (in clay pots w/ saucers) on the Sunday before a Wednesday evening work reception (last minute), and received great service, prompt responses to my questions, and timely delivery (to Tribeca) of high quality beautiful plants. They arrived securely packed with nice tissue paper and care instructions for each plant. It was a cryptocurrency event so money trees seemed fitting and the potted trees will live much longer than cut than flowers (and are also easy to care for). At the end of the night, the reception guests happily took them all home. Thank you, My City Plants, for making our first in-person event special!

Dear Anna,
Thank you for choosing My City Plants and for taking the time to provide your feedback.
We were very exited to be a part of your very important event and are very happy that you loved our plants and service. Best of luck to you!
