Great looking plant

A bit hard to grow, and came a bit damaged in shipping, but it looks great in the terrarium, and has special leaves that move according to the daylight. Overall a cool buy.

So Beautiful!

I purchased a WITCH'S BREW PLANT KIT and this was one of the plants. The one that came was smaller than the one here but it was so beautiful. This was a wish list plant that I had been looking for. As usual it came packed beautifully and was so healthy.
