Meet Gemma! She wants to be the crown jewel of your living room jungle. Her leaves look faceted with their bright veins, reminiscent of the shining surface of a finely cut gem. The backsides of her narrow leaves are burgundy like tear drop garnets. Gemma knows you have seen Romancing the Stone approximately one hundred times and when you mouth the lines, she doesn’t mind if you are Jack or Joan as long as she gets to play the emerald!
We recommend planting this plug in our Aroid potting soil.
THIS PLANT SHIPS AS A 2″ 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.
We root certain plants in sphagnum moss for greatest shipping success. When you go to repot your plant, carefully remove the growers pot and gently tease open the sphagnum and roots. If some sphagnum falls off, no worries! It can be discarded or added to your potting medium. If some stays attached to the roots, just let it be. Your roots will grow happily around it. We advise that you don’t overly mess with the roots, they don’t need to be picked clean. Questions? Message us!
