I've only bought one plant off of here so far, and it was a great experience. I bought my 'Eden Black' from francisfaustino. He had great communication and answered all of my questions. He sent me a really healthy and I would definitely buy from him again.

I also received a Cephalotus 'Eden Black' from francisfaustino back in September 2020. Not only was the plant a great size (mature division) but I could tell he genuinely cared about the plants themselves. It was shown in the conversations, the packaging, and ultimately in the quality of the plant itself. One of the best CP purchases I ever made. Would definitely work with him again. Thanks!

I have to agree with the both of you, Francisfaustino is one cool cat! I also received a very nice Eden Black specimen from him. Transaction went very well and was delivered as promised. Wife was stoked and I got lucky... :D

Yeah man I was actually about to update my thread on it soon. Got a couple pics. Thing went nuts after I started filling the pitchers. Lately I pulled back but the plant is clumping upwards of 4 high now in some spots. Plant is awesome and is quickly taking over the hydropot. Thanks so much!

Ordered a G16 from francisfaustino and I couldn't be happier. I received the plant in a couple days, I didn't mind paying the UPS shipping charge, it was well packed, and bigger than what I was expecting. I hope to purchase from him again. Overall an excellent buying experience.

A nice addition to my collection.

I purchased a VFT from francisfaustino, FTS Shogun Star, and it just arrived in great condition. Very well and securely packaged, 10/10.
He did contact me prior to shipping about what he thought may be a potential issue, and offered me the choice of moving forward, another plant, or a refund, but I chose to proceed with the original choice. However, I definitely feel that the heads up gave me the ability to prepare just in case.
I will absolutely be keeping an eye on his future offerings.
Thank you.
