Meet Darcy! As Etsy’s top selling female jeweler, Darcy knows her stuff. She loves the dark tones of onyx, black tourmaline, and obsidian and isn’t afraid to combine many different shades of dark stones in her work. She uses her favorite metal, copper, in all of her work, which she expertly weaves in to set off the raven colored jewels. And just when you least expect it, BAM, she will throw in the prettiest moonstone or opal in the form of little flowers. She is truly a jewel in the design world.

We recommend planting this plug in our specialty orchid 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.
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.
