nice tiny plants

Plants arrived quickly, in good shape. They look healthy and leaves are a deep green, but plants are smaller than I expected. I repotted them right away. They still look good, but it's too soon to really review.

Great plant! Beautiful flower!

I bought this plant with the intention to put in a vivarium, but thought that it was too nice to be crammed in. Instead I planted it in a pot and displayed it in my room. Came perfectly healthy and without a scratch!

Fast Grower!

This plant has taken over my terrarium, covering all the wood and vines in nice natural clusters of plants. It won’t stop flowering, and I’ve gotten at least 4 cuttings from it!

great, but...

I've had one in my leuc vivarium for a few months now. It hasn't yet flowered, but it's literally taking over the entire habitat - so much so that it's choking out almost every other plant. I'm probably going to move it to a vivarium on its own or just pot it as a house plant. In short, it grows well but needs constant cutting back if used in a vivarium.
