Got these planters as a gift (per request). I got them in yellow and I love the color finish. We received 2 of these and I put suculants inside of them which seem to be working well in terms of looks (only potted for a week so cannot comment on health of plants at this point). There is a rather large delivery lag, and this was actually a March Birthday gift that arrived in late May. The wait is well worth it however, in fact I am starting to ponder ordering at least 1 more.
