Meet Franz. A fierce advocate for sun safety, he likes to stand in the shade, expounding the virtues of a high SPF. Yes his leaves are patterned with the most beautiful copper tan, but Franz knows sun damage is no joke. He constantly checks, and loudly announces, your location’s UV index and weather forecast. Thank you, Franz, for the giant wraparound sunglasses you give for every birthday. We know it comes from a deep well of love.
We recommend planting this plug in our Cactus & Succulent soil.
