Ok so this was the most expensive plant I bought from this website ($15) but obviously such a good price still. As with my other plants it comes in a tiny 2” pot, but it had TWO long vines already with a bunch of leaves and some new ones coming it. So healthy and happy. It has this neoprene like texture on the mature leaves thats so pretty! I hear the care is super easy so I’m not worried about not getting a big plant ASAP. I can’t wait to see it grow!
