This is one of my favorite additions to my plants!!
Ordered several plants. Was pleased but this one arrived unhealthy but trying to revive it.
Received in great condition!
I am a little sad that one came pretty wilted and tiny. I tried to bring it back but it was too late. The other 3 in the small pot are very healthy though and I can't wait to see them grow.
I love this
