Not happy.
I purchased this plant in an order of 3 plants in August and received it in the first week of September.
The plant had a good size rhizome, but the roots were all mushy and dead. The leaves were all dead and fell in the following few hours of opening the package. I contacted ecuagenera and was advised to plant the rhizome in coco fiber and put it in high humidity spot. I usually follow a soak, rehydrate and then reroot process for all of my imports and have had high success rate. However, this plant arrived in such a poor condition that none of my efforts was able to save it. The rhizome itself kept rotting and I had to chop and remove the rot a couple of times. At this point I am left with a chunk. At the end, I was offered a %40 discount on my next order. But I'm not sure if it's the best solution. I paid for a grown plant and am left with a chunk and option of buying more plants with discount that is not guaranteed to arrive in better condition.
Excellent specimens
I've ordered one of these El Choco. And then three more. They are a fantastic plant which traveled well for 3 out of 4.

One had 2 bad leaves, but a new leaf coming and a sharp growth tip. All had nice a big "chonk" root with smaller roots. No mushy parts on the chonk.

The first one, I put on a moss pole and it is doing great. The other 3, I put in water for one week and they are thriving. Soon to be on moss poles too. A hearty plant. Highly recommended.
Healthy plant
My plant arrived in Georgia USA looking healthy. It has not lost any leaves or wilted (unlike the verru2). It seems to be acclimating to my home. The underside of the leaf is not as red/blushed as I expected but that my happen as it matures?
Large and vigorous el choco red
I received an email confirming my order prior to shipment. The package came quickly. The plant was in great shape when it arrived. Did not require any rehab despite being an import. New roots grew quickly.
El Choco
Received two very large leaves and one on the way, both leaves were damaged one has a hole in it but that could be because I didn't get expedited shipping. Risk worth taking
Besut
I recieved a beautiful plant with three leaves, one was just unfurling. It also has a really nice red back and the roots look great. I really can recommend buying this plant! :)
Beautiful plant

Huge and beautiful
Received a massive specimen with 3 leaves (all >30cm in length) and no signs of stress at all. It has only been with me for less than a week and is already pushing out a new leaf. Unfortunately it seems like mature plants do not have the red backs in their leaves.
All leaves are died
I purchased many plants in different time here and this time I purchased verrucosum5 and regale stripes. but these are bad condition I have ever received. About verrucosum5, all leaves are yellowish and dried then easily fallen. Regale has only 1 leaf which is already dried and need to cut it. Luckily both roots are not rotten but these small roots are very weak. I chose extra charge for fastest shipping but unfortunately plants are not well…It was a very disappointing result this time because it was in good condition when I bought it last time.
Rotten stem
I have been very generally pleased with my plant orders from Ecuagenera except the last shipment. I ordered 2 Verru 5 on separate occasion just a week apart. I received one with a rotten stem and both plants have yellowing leaves. I understand yellowing is due to shipping stress however I've bought from Ecuagenera before where plants arrived in pristine condition. I'm not very pleased.
Healthy foliage and roots
Receive the plant with healthy foliage and roots and it acclimatised quickly and opened a new leaf within 2 weeks
Beautiful plant
This plant is probably the best looking verru that I've recieved from ecuagenera. The roots are fine. It is in spaghum and will be there for a few weeks, but that is the norm for imported plants.
Beautiful Plant, Lack of Roots
This plant showed up shipped in a great condition and looked amazing. 2-3 big leaves. However, as others have stated, there really weren't any roots able to sustain the plant in humidity levels below around 90%+. I lost all leaves within a week. If you don't have enough room in your highest humidity boxes or chambers for the full plant out of the box (maybe 2.5' high), I'd cut the leaves and throw the chonk in water to root it, then sphag. I'm about 4 months later and I now have a few small leaves and enough roots to migrate to moss. 4 stars for the price and beauty of the plant received. But had to take off 2 stars since, without roots, it can be a risk. However, added one star back for chonk size and rehab-ability :)
Pay for Upgraded Shipping
I just received mine today, and though his leaves are huge, they are in pretty poor condition, which - to be fair, I live in Phoenix AZ and he came all the way from Florida via UPS ground. Most of his leaves will probably not recover, but his roots look ok, and he should be salvageable. For the price of this plant, I would certainly not hesitate to purchase again and recommend, however, I also recommend upgrading your shipping if you are more than a day or two transit time. Other than that, he was packaged with care, and I saw that in the way that the entire box was packed. I am still satisfied with my purchase.
Big leaves!
Quite pleased with the size of this plant when it arrived! The root system isn't very good, but I found that it isn't too difficult to re-root. I put mine in sphagnum moss and it rooted after a few weeks. I also did not experience any leaf loss, which is amazing, given that the root system it came with wasn't very good to begin with. Overall, I'm very happy with this plant. Always wanted one and I'm excited to continue growing the one that I have.
Large leaves, No roots
Plant came in with 2 large leaves, 1 of which was yellow from shipping. The other is still acclimating so I will see what happens in the coming weeks. All the roots were not viable and definitely dead on arrival. Large Chonk, def room for rehabbing. Order if youre willing to rehab , if not don't. Picture comparable to Plant received.
All roots rotted
Plants came with all roots rotted. There were two small leaves, one of which was completely yellow and the other one wilted in the next few days. I put the rest of the plant in sphagnum moss for rehabilitation. It's been a month and half then. Nothing really happend and the rest of the vegetation started to die back. I've reached out to them for a replacement/refund, and was rejected immediately. I would not recommend taking the risk buying from them.
Big healthy plant.
This has been in my care for a month and is big. It's happy and healthy
Ordered 3 now in various form of rehab
I ordered 3 plants they arrived ok. 1 was perfect. 1 had leaves but no roots. I put it in coco coir and directly in a green house. months later plant is beautiful. The third plant died down to the stump. I rehab it but leaves are very small and the plant still struggles.
It's huge!!
I repeat, they are huge! Im super happy! It was a little rot, a few leaf los, but nothing terrible. ☺
Fantastic
Plant was wrapped in paper which was amazing as it did not allow for moisture to be trapped on the leaves.
Plant had 4 leaves and one on the way. Of the 4 leaves, only one was slightly yellow due to transit.
Roots were wonderful and Plant is acclimating well in my care.
Would definitely recommend purchasing this plant as it meets most requirements:
- heart shaped
- velvety texture
- Red back
- sizes up quite fast
1 out of 4 died
This doesn't ship well and acclimate very slowly.
Terrible
I paid expedited shipping for this plant because I knew I would be out of town the following week. They still shipped via priority shipping and did not inform me and had to find out through the tracking number. I contacted them and they refunded me the cost of shipping. However, I had to intercept the package, pay $50, and had to reroute it because I would not be home. The plant finally arrive after a week and was completely dead.
no roots, most of leaves die
each one came with at least 3-4 leaves, but only 1 will survive after a few days. not rooted, need to root and req
Came half rotten and died
Came with yellow leaves and rotted unfortunatelly soon after it was recieved.
Came with alot of yellowing and broken leaves
Came with alot of yellowing and broken leaves.. very unhappy with the Singapore shipment on 3rd of June 2021
Good experience
I didn't receive a big chunk but I am ok with it as the plant was medium sized with 4 leaves. Roots were ok, one leaf had yellowed and died regardless of express shipping, again not unexpected. The good thing is that the plant has acclimated well after the initial stress. I can see the specimen rooting already and the leaves look exactly as they arrived. I am happy with this purchase!
so worth the buy
Beautiful but risky is right - the price is perfect, the plant will likely lose all it's leaves to stress, but with a little patience and the new growth point, the plant should provide a beautiful new choco leaves that you're looking for. Highly recommend.
Good
I received two plants, in different sizes- one nice and large, second slightly smaller. In very good conditions, with nice roots and leaves. They acclimatized well and fast, i have them for 3 months now, they grew few leaves already. I'm happy with my purchase.
Beautiful but very risky
Your chances of getting a successful plant are 2/5? I’ve ordered this and it had some green areas but mainly yellow. It came with 5 leaves all but one has partial yellow and green leaves. It had root rot. I also upgraded to 2 day shipping yet it didn’t make it.. It was devastating not to mention how expensive the plant and upgraded shipping was. You will obviously need to rehab it and regrow the plant from a chonk which is very upsetting but if you’re patient enough and have a green thumb, you can revive this. This is definitely not a beginner plant.
Best plant I have ever received!
While my El Choco did come with some damage to the leaves, the root system of this plant was absolutely amazing. For me, this plant is a really fast grower, pushing out new leaves at least every month. The previously damaged leaves have now been replaced by new and huge leaves! This is such an amazing plant, I can only highly recommend getting this one
All 10 arrived damaged and rotted
I've ordered multiple times from Ecuagenera and this is yet to be my most disappointing order. I ordered 10 P. verrucosum 5 and they were delivered in only 4 days, however in that time ALL 10 specimens had faced significant amounts of rot and decay. I am familiar with importing plants and reviving them after some amount of stress, however this is just way too much. I immediately took pictures detailing the extent of the damage to my plants and emailed Ecuagenera support. They still have not responded.
100% worth it!!!
Location: Singapore

Received an extra large specimen with two massive leaves and a few small leaves that has since yellowed in transit, to be expected. The plant came with good roots in cocopeat and perlite, and one week into acclimatization it started putting out a new leaf! Very impressed by the health and quality from Ecuagenera as usual.

Leaves died
This plant arrived with 4 leaves which all yellowed and wilted within 3 days. I was left with a chonk that has little roots. It’s currently in chunky soil and just waiting for it to do something. I hope it survives. I’ve ordered other plants that arrived in better condition before.
Pretty if it recovers
I ordered and arrives within a good timeframe. The tracking did not come in from Ecu at all, but rather the mail carrier which sends me packages coming. hence, I was not notified until delivering day. The plant root system and size was very small seedling compared to the other plant received. I hope it recovers. It had rot and leaves were lost in a week of arrival. the other has dropped leaves, but seems to be ok.
Good size
I got 2 of these and they came in pretty good condition. They have huge leaves and new growth. They are dropping some leaves which is to be expected.
Beautiful plants but poor root systems
I love those plants and I ordered 3 of them
But I received really baaaaad plants
1 of them died after a week and 2 of them still in rehab. So annoying.
2 large beautiful leaves
Well rooted plant with a really thick stem. Arrived with 2 huge leaves with come yellowing along the edges but that is to be expected with this plant looking at everyone else's reviews.
Exceeded expectations
Received a 3 leaf verrucosum 5. Quite healthy, but as I was just totally overjoyed by the size and healthiness...i saw this morning one of the leaves turning yellow. Hope its not a sign of anything worrisome, just transport stress.
Would recommend purchasing this though. Sent what was stated in their description.
Large beautiful plant, thanks Ecuagenera!
Received great plant with 4 leafs (2 of them is mature plant size), required some additional watering, but all of them still in the plant and looks great. Many thanks!
No roots but sizable plant
This was the aroid that was in the worst condition out of the rest. It had no roots but was relatively large. All of the other plants have recovered including the rootless orchids, but this one refuses to throw out roots. Make sure you prepare yourself for this possibility before ordering.
Great condition - to EU
Very happy about the leaves condition, roots are very healthy too.
Happy with purchase
Shipped to Singapore.

Roots came nice and healthy. No major leave loss but new leaf appears abit stunted as this isn't something that ships well. Happy with purchase and waiting for it to acclimatize fully
Happy
Bought 5 of these. They are all different sizes. 2 are quite small. 1 of them has a nice chonk. They all have decent roots. The leaves are a bit sad at the moment but other than that they are all doing well. They have gorgeous red leaves. Happy with my purchase
Very large mature plant, did not fair well being shipped.
Plant is a very good size. Roughly 15 inch leaf. The other leaves were shriveled and discolored upon arrival. 1 of 3 leaves survived, plant is otherwise well rooted and healthy in appearance.
Very good
Some shipping damage, but a nice healthy plant.
Great
I have ordered two plants, all arrived in good condition.
WOW
My last experience with Ecuagenera was ruined by poor packaging (they sent beautiful plants but many of them came damaged, however customer service was EXCELLENT). This time it was completely different. Very large, gorgeous specimens. Thank you!
Beautiful plant
I ordered 3 of them and came really in poor condition. All roots were rotten and one plant was yellow and brown. But I didn’t know that could claim about the plant’s a condition that time.
I think this plants is really weak from long travel.
One month later one plant has died, two of them still struggling and I am following ecuagenra’s plant guide.
I love ecuagenra and I left positive review but bad thins is bad. I am fair person.
Super Nice
Superbig plant with nice leaves..it took some damage in the road but it's amazing
Very good
Size plant is great ! plant is very healthy but very wet, leaves had signs of overwatering. Luckily, plant doing well now
Great!
Plant arrived in good condition losing only one leaf from travel. Plant was much much bigger than I expected too. She is thriving in her new home already putting out two new leaves.
Worst import plant root
The plants from this store usually are rotted when they arrived. 6 of my el choco is having no leaves at all. Paid 90 for this crap. Not recommended. And I am not getting any refund for it. Customer service is not good
stunning
the red backs on these are amazing. I was very worried about this one, but it shipped nicely. It came with 3 massive fully developed leaves, and one bigger leaf that is currently unfurling just fine. it has lost 2 leaves since it's been acclimating, but this is completely normal. I would buy this again.
OK
Does not travell so well, came with 5 leaves, 2 yellow and fell off, the other with yellow spots. Overally looks sad but there is a new growth that looks healthy. SO I hope! Roots look OK
Very nice El Choco
I've ordered this plant twice and it has been gorgeous both times. Large leaves, from 3 to 5 leaves per plant. Both had new growth.
Both times this plant shipped, it came with rotten roots.
You will need to cut the rot off and root in water until you see new growth before potting. This one requires a little patience.
amazing plant
I received a nice big plant with 5 leaves. 3 oldest leaves was yellow, and some 1/4 of the roots died from shipping stress, which is very understandable. The roots is bouncing back very strong very quickly. I'm happy with the purchase
product was stunning!
Received this specimen with 5 stunning leaves but the roots were rotted, no roots left, just keeping my fingers crossed that this won't die on me.
Week Roots
Ordered this plant before and had a good experience.
This time the roots were very weak and the plants struggled - slowly lost all it it's leaves over course of a week despite placing in greenhouse. Not left trying to root stem chonks.
Very nice plant
Everything went smoothly. The plant is growing nice and strong!
Excellent Choco
This is my second order from Ecuagenera and I couldn't be more pleased. My el choco red arrived with two very large leaves and one smaller leaf that yellowed during shipping. I received a gorgeous plant and one of the largest el choco's I have seen in person. Thank you!
Choco at it's best
Obtained a very big and Healthy plant with 2 mature hand sized leaves and 3 smaller leaves. It acclimated fast and well and is pushing out straight a new leave at 50% humidity east window in german winter.

Shipping was very well, roots were fresh, sadly no heat pack, but ups Express does the job
Spectacular plant, but had root rot
The plant I got is really beautiful and large. It really looks awesome. However, they packed mine with a heat pack and it gave the plant root rot, so I had to remove all the roots. I have been rehabbing and I can see new roots forming, so I am very excited about the future of the plant!! It's a beautiful plant, but it arrived in poor condition.
Good leaves and roots!
I order five of them. They arrived in good condition. However, looking at the pictures I was assuming that the leaves would be bigger. Only 1 El Choco got a leave larger than 20cm, other were smaller. Also I only received plants with a max of 2 good leaves, needed to cut of a lot of leaves sadly.
Tiny Plant with a Poor Root System
I'm normally very happy with my orders and the size of plant or roots but this plant died within a week, with one leaf but no root system.
Leaves are good, roots are not
Arrived with 4 leaves. They have some cosmetic damages but otherwise the plant looks healthy. The roots however didn't look so great. Most were brown and only a few roots were healthy. Make sure you know how to root stumps. These don't do well in shipping and I paid for express.
Beautiful but a little worrying
This el choco red arrived with four large leaves and one smaller leaf, a huge stump, but not as many roots as I would have liked. It does have some good roots, but I'm worried that it will take some time to establish more and acclimate properly. There was no damage to the leaves when it arrived, and as it is 3 days later, the smallest leaf is now starting to yellow (possible delayed reaction to the stress of shipping, cold damage, or stress of acclimating). For reference, I am in California and upgraded to USPS Express shipping which I highly recommend. Overall, very very pleased with the order. Now it's up to me to make sure it thrives. :)
Amazing buy!!!!
The plant was truly shocking, it had three BIG beautiful leaves with one on the way. The packed was great. I was truly amazed when I unwrapped the packaging but a great great buy. We will be doing business again!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good
Came in good shape even though one of the leaves, the biggest one, was a bit damaged. Overall, happy with it.
50% Success
Pot 1: arrived in perfect condition with healthy roots and huge leaves (100 marks for this).

Pot 2: unfortunately 1 adult stem + baby shoot arrived broken; roots are healthy so it’s in acceptable condition though not ideal.

Pot 3: arrived with root rot and 3 broken stems. Media was extremely wet and emitted a foul smell upon unpacking.

Based on my current experience, V5 does not travel well so do expect some foreseeable risk (losing a few stems due to rot).

Simply, 5* was awarded due to the great customer experience (replacement plant for Pot 3) arranged through Sales Consultant Mr C.O.

Fingers crossed that the replacement plant will ship well.

5 out of 5
My plant came perfectly wrapped in spagnum moss and the leaves were packaged perfectly. I received 3 leaves and on one the way. Size reference one as big as my face the other two size of a softball. Pictures on my Instagram @Plant.Mani
dead in the end, no heat pack
This one was a heart breaker! Living in a Nordic country I was hesitant on ordering plants in winter, however I decided to order and asked a seller to include a heat pack. El choco arrived in December without a heat pack, and in addition to that it stayed over the weekend in the delivery company warehouse. The plant size was amazing, two huge leaves and one coming, it had lots of roots, the soil was wet and a plant had a frostbite on the leaves. Roots got also damaged from wet soil and cold combination. I put it into intensive care, but it started to rot in within a week and dropped leaves. I tried to bring the stump back to live, but it rotted all the way through. So, eventually, I have no plant and a very heart breaking story. if I order in the future, I will order only during warm months.
Rot
I got sent this plant withou any heatpack even though the seller told me it would be sent with one. It looked a bit crashed in the beginning and the roots werent as good as they should and rotting a bit because it came in wet soil. I just put it in pure water and cut off the damaged roots. The plant lost all its leafes within a week and died.
I ordered a Crystallinum too wich is surviving perfect. El Choco most likely died because it was watered too much before sending and was still wet when it arrived.
Excellent
Location:Singapore

Plant arrived extremely well despite having a newly emerging leaf with leaves around 25cm in length. Decent root ball. Pleasantly surprised considering that el choco is a plant that doesnt travel well.

Disclaimer: your own shipping experience with this plant may be extremely different. However the one i received was excellent.
Sad condition
The product was packaged without heet pack so when it cake the plant was damadged and soon after receiving it - it started to rot...
I hope that I can rehab it but it is very unfortunate...
It’s fine
I received this plant small compared to other that I’ve seen when they do unboxing on YouTube.
Amazing plant!
Amazing plant, It arrived in perfect condition with two large, beautiful leaves, healthy root system and already new leaf coming. Super happy :)
Perfect
I´ve ordered this plant in December and i live in Germany. I was really worried it would show up in bad shape because of the temperature and long shipping.
It arrived in perfect condition, a really good root system and already a new leaf coming. It was bigger than the plant shown in the picture.
Very pleased with my order :)
Healthy plant!
Got a good size plant. Excellent as always. Survived the cold shipping! Super happy and such a beautiful plant.
excellent specimen, sturdy plant
Plant was in the mail eight days+ and arrived in excellent condition. Packaged well, the large leaves lasted despite our forgetting to opt for priority shipping.
Beautiful healthy philodendron! Good sized plant!
Plant arrived in perfect condition. Potted into aroid soil mix. Plant is healthy and pushing out a new leaf!
Arrived in a good shape (to EU)
only have the furling leaf fell off, all in all, i am very happy about the condition how the plant arrived
So happy with the plant
Plant arrived today and it came with absolutely no damage. Well packed and secured and it looks like it was packed yesterday.
This is the second time I order this plant and both time plants arrived in superb condition.
I am so happy.

This one arrived with 1 quite large leaf beautiful leaf, and one on the way.

I am so happy
AMAZING
The shipping for this plant was delayed due to COVID, but my choco arrived surprisingly well. It had very big leaves and stump. The roots were a little dry, but she recovered and has been growing beautifully ever since.
Superb condition
I am over the moon happy with this Philodendron.
It arrived in such amazing condition.
3 gorgeous leafs.
One of the leafs unfolded during transport, and even with it being such a delicate leaf, it did not suffer any damage.
Plants where so well secured.
Beautiful leaves
This plant arrived in excellent condition. Such a beauty! Thank you
Good plant
This plant was one of those, which I picked up at a show last year. It goes strong and is a very beautiful plant.
Hit or miss. If you like gambling, place an order.
Ordered several and only one came as pictured. The others were smaller and lost their leaves from shipping. I've ordered over 20+ aroids and honestly it is hit or miss. I would say 1/4 arrives in acceptable condition meaning the stem is easily salvageable. Maybe it's packaging or the time traveling, but I always lose most of the leaves. Plants arrive in sphagnum moss wrapped in plastic. If you order from the USA, be aware you will probably not get what you see. That's why the prices reflect it. If you order, pay extra for express mail or you will lose plants due to delays. These are prices for rehabs. I have unpacking videos on youtube @ Austin Green Earth.
Healthy Plant - France
First you should know that Verrucosum travels very, very badly. I received my package fairly quickly 2 days after sending. The plant arrived in perfect condition. She has a very good root system. I haven't lost any leaves and those even after repotting. I advise you not to touch the root when repotting. It took a little longer than that cousin but a growth is underway. I recommend this product
