    Many mailorder plant companies show you 'enhanced' color pictures and take major liberties with size descriptions. Many do not. The trick is determining which is which.

    Anything in a "jumbo 2 and a quarter inch cell pot" is plenty dam&*% small.

    Remember, you get what you pay for from these places. The other side of this is that sometimes you will get a larger than expected, but potbound plant, that needed 'up-potting' weeks ago. So, they sold it to you, rather that invest the labor to move it to a bigger pot. Sometimes a good deal, but, more often than not, not - because of root and (lack of) water stress.
