  1. Fabulous! Review by Melissa
    How do you rate this product?

    I purchased the small 2.5" pot and it was packed with amazing care! After a month or so I repotted it into a clay pot (as recommended) and it was gone crazy! I can't believe what a vigorous grower this plant is. It was surpassed all my expectations and I'm thrilled I bought it.

    Only wish I could post a photo to show how amazing this little plant is. (Posted on 12/7/2018)
