I didn't like it at all when I first got it. I would've returned it if I wasn't going to get charged the return shipping. So, decided to pull out the picture in Overstock and tried to arrange the leaves the same way. That made it better, but still looked horrible raised at the leaves still looked sparsed. Finally decided to place it on the floor, in the corner of the room. This somehow made the plant look much better. I then decided to put it in a nice pot. Now it can actually pass as almost real looking... Unless your up close.
