Arrived in perfect condition. It's really neat and pretty plant with an interesting leaf texture. The one I got is really well established and a good size so it should hold up well once I put my CA king snake in his new viv. It also seems to be easy to care for.

Ordered through Amazon

I ordered my plant through Amazon not knowing anything about Josh's frogs. My plants arrived earlier than expected, packed extremely well, and in great condition! I am impressed. The epicia is beautiful. I had one years ago and It didn't survive my Black thumb.
