But before buying any plant, ensure you see the actual pictures and see whether it’s a cutting or a rooted plant. For variegated plants, make sure the node has a variegated leaf. Also get trusted vendors

Etsy.com is very easy to use. Just search for the plant you need, see which vendors have it, and select the plant you like. Pick people with many positive reviews, and ensure you see the actual picture of the plant you will receive and not just the mother plant.
