So cute!

What an exceptional quality plant! Love it!!


Adorable little plant!

I originally heard of this tiny plant on Etsy, and promptly fell in love. I've been researching plants for a terrarium for my table, and this little guy was too cute to pass up. After looking around I ended up repeatedly stumbling across Josh's Frogs. Initially I discounted them, since I wasn't looking to have a pet herp, just plants. Many terrarium sites gave them high reviews, so I finally checked them out. These guys have a wealth of information about terrarium setup, choosing the right plants, and plant care. I eventually brought this little guy from here and was not disappointed. He arrived healthy and whole, well-packaged for such a tiny plant. Shipping and handling were a bit more than expected, but considering the care, well worth the price. I've currently got him set up in a glass cup on my desk at work as a mini, open-top terrarium, and he seems to be liking it. About the species itself: when they say super dwarf, they aren't kidding. I've got a full-size syngonium next to it, and the effect is almost comical. The full-size is around a foot tall if you include the pot, whereas this little guy is maybe two inches across and only an inch and a half tall. I look forward to it growing and eventually producing offsets I can use elsewhere. TL;DR This is a great, super-mini plant from a great seller. If anyone is looking to buy one I would unreservedly recommend they get it here. Thanks!



Little rough after the shipping but is popping back after a couple days planted. Love the size of it though!



this is a beautiful plant, arrived a little crispy and still has not opened fully (been a month) but besides that its dooing great and i highly recommend.
