Meet Ashima.This girl’s got goals and they are literally straight up to the top of the world. A climber since the beginning, Ashima shingles her way up, placing one leaf after another, strategizing her ascent as she goes. You’ll want to keep adding more challenging heights as she is unstoppable!

We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.

**IMPORTANT NOTE:
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.
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.

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!

Notes:

  • Grows best in bright, indirect light. Too much harsh sun can turn the leaves yellow.
  • Young plants may not have splits and that’s ok! As the plant gets older, the leaves will begin to split.
  • Loves climbing moss poles and wood planks!
  • Wipe leaves with a damp cloth when they become dusty.
  • Toxic to pets and humans.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
