Beautiful Strong Plant

I knew I was getting this plant in a 6" pot, but boy was I not expecting how big it was. The plant was well over a foot tall with multiple plants in the pot. It's currently in my tortoise's enclosure but I'm planning on splitting it up so I can have a few around the house. If it was hardy enough to survive shipping AND my tortoise, I have no doubt it will last me a long time.

VERY SATISFIED !

Well worth the price. Over a foot tall and looks like more than one in the pot. I am always impressed with the plants I get from Josh's Frogs. I couldn't get something similar in a local garden center as healthy and full, and for the same low price.
