Meet Ace. This String of Spades is anything but heartless and you’ll see why the ace of spades is the highest, most valuable card in the deck. He dives selflessly into his work of growing spade-shaped leafy tendrils, without the need for accolades (though applause is always welcome). You’re sure to win with an Ace on your sill and we have no doubt you’ll find everything is coming up aces!
We recommend planting this plug in our Cactus & Succulent soil.
THIS PLANT SHIPS AS A 1″ FULLY ROOTED STARTER PLANT, AS SHOWN IN THE SECOND PHOTO. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included. If you order multiple plants, we put them together in one pot so they stay moist and insulated. If you think we haven’t sent the full order, please take out the plants from the pot first to count them.
Winter shipping has begun… as a heartfelt thank you, this year we are including free winter protection (thermal insulation liners every time and heat packs as necessary) in each box. *Free winter protection only available through website orders, not our Etsy shop
