Care Notes: When watering plants, water should be as close to room temperature as available. Sensitive to root rot, avoid overwatering or allowing plants to sit in soggy soil. Bottom watering preferred to avoid water on the leaves. Being sensitive to overwatering and high humidity, this plant is best suited for tarantulas, scorpions, and other invertebrates, as well as day geckos, fat tail geckos, and other herps with a small size and moderate humidity needs.
As a good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants may vary in color, size, and appearance.

Received an African Violet today, and it was packed to perfection to keep it lovely on a freezing day. I am always impressed with the quality of Josh's Frog's plants. Thank you.
