Planting & Care
Once you’ve selected a location (or your container, which should be twice the size of the shipped container), dig a hole that’s around twice the size of your plant’s root ball and just as deep, with a bit of extra room to grow. Then, place the tree, tamp down the soil and water to settle the roots.
When planting the Orange Shrmip in a container, ensure it has drainage holes and use organic soil mix. Then, place in a sunny area on your porch, patio or indoors.
2. Watering: We recommend watering young plants twice weekly or checking your soil. Generally, you should check your soil about 2 to 3 inches down for dryness – if the soil is dry here, water your plant.
3. Pruning: Simply remove any damaged or dead foliage and spent blooms to encourage growth.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

This plant came in looking healthy. I'm very pleased with it. Now just waiting for it to grow.
Pros and Cons
Con: As far as the shrimp plants I am very disappointed. They are not doing well at all. All the leaves fell off and other issues. Pro: After contacting customer service about the problems I was astounded at how professional they were. They handled the problem to 100% satisfaction and worked out a solution that both sides agreed upon. Therefore, due to that, I have given some other plants a try and we shall see how they do. Thanks Fast Growing Trees for the outstanding customer service!
We're so sorry that this plant didn't work out for you, but grateful we were able to make it right!
Best online plant I have bought
Plant arrived about 3 feet tall, green and with leaves. Most plant purchases I have made on other sites have been disappointing. Now if I can just keep it alive all winter my hummies wil love it!!!!
FUTURE DELIVERY OF THE SHRIMP PLANT
The first shrimp plant arrived and was almost dead so we made arrangements to have another one being sent around the first week of April. The assistance on the phone to get a future one sent soon went really well. Very professional and courteous on the phone.
