Rated 5 out of 5 by Elvis Mom Beautiful plant!!
I purchased my Totem Pole plant a couple of years ago and it is simply a beautiful plant! It grew just as the description said it would. It is easy to start and the foliage it a lush shiny beautiful green, well over a foot tall and the width is greater. I love it! I wish I had room to grow more!!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by beatrice Biggest disappointment
Purchased several of these. Each one grew this huge one or two stalks from pole. It was the ugliest looking thing. Landed up throwing them out. What a waste of money.
Rated 5 out of 5 by nonickname available Got it last year and it is doing great
I got this last year for the basement room where my grandson and friends play.
My 13 old grandson followed the directions. It looks now pretty much like the photo in today's ad. It doesn't get much light through the window well and he waters it when it is really dry. He likes the idea that he can remember who gave it to him helped him get it to life.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Scottd Perfect indoor plant
Ok, scrape brown wax off base of log. DO NOT remove the bark! Now, soak log MINIMUM 6 wks w/ Robertas Hawaiian Flower Magic added 2 wtr. Eight drops per quart. Change ONCE a wk. Your log will be rdy 2 plant after 6 + wks of soaking & growth has penetrated upper log & you see vigorous roots @ base. Now, use normal potting soil. You don't need a "miracle." IMPORTANT: keep soil moist for life of plant. Water generously once a wk w/ Hawaiian Magic & fertilize one a month w/ Plant Blast. It works! Drain excess water 2 prevent root rot. Don't over do it & your log should last yrs like myn. Good luck!

Yes it took awhile for something to happen. It felt like months. But I hung in there and finally I saw a spout out of the trunk and then another and another. Now approx 9 months later I have a beautiful plant with a perfect spot in my livingroom. I've never been very successful with house plants but this one is hardy and low maintainence . I now want one for my office and I'm going to get one for my boss's office where I can't get anything to grow. Patience is the key.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Memom12 Did not grow.
I have tried to make this plant grow, but no success! Very disappointed!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Linste Nice indoor plant
I don't keep indoor plants because I never have any luck with them. But I chose this item and it is growing nicely. It's growing a little slower than I expected, but I can transplant to a larger pot which might help it grow faster.
Rated 1 out of 5 UGH! No plant just a log.
I did EVERYTHING the enclosed instructions stated. I wanted this plant to grow! I had to move it to another room because of the water stinking so badly. I changed water as directed but only had floating muck within a day. My plant didn't develop any roots or growth on the top. It stated plant it anyway which I did. Now 4 months later-too late to send back. I now have a log in a planter and nothing else. The plant $31.00 and pot, soil and fertilizer another $54.00. Nothing-so disappointing.
Rated 1 out of 5 by CAS Horrible!
This totem pole is one of the worst purchases I've made on QVC. Has done nothing but grow mold though I followed the directions provided, Smells are nauseating. Plan to throw away and not purchase anything from Roberta's again!
Rated 5 out of 5 by CB13 Doing Exactly as Promised
I love this plant!!! Everyone thought I was nuts soaking a "log" in water for 6-8 wks. But sure enough, at 6 wks, the bark on the sides started cracking and during the 7th week, I could see green coming through. I planted it in dirt per directions and now there are numerous little green sprouts coming out all over the "log" towards the top half. Now everyone is anxious to see what it will grow into!! This is one plant that did exactly as they said it would (I love those Wallien brothers!!), and it did it exactly when they said it would. I cannot wait to see the leaves pop out!!!

When I received the plant, I read the directions and followed. Now I have a beautiful, thriving plant that is the centerpiece of conversation with all my visitors. Roberta's always delivers quality.
Rated 5 out of 5 by KarenLG I love my Totem!
I bought 2 of these, 2 months apart. My new one has only been in water for a week in a half, but it seems to be fine. The tree I got in March is doing great! It's leaves are growing bigger every day! It's soo lovely to watch. As a matter of fact, a new bud is beginning to poke out of the back. That will make 5 sprouts so far. I love mine and am sooo glad I had the chance to order another before they stopped shipping them. Thanks Roberta's.
