Meet Elwood! You can always find him at holiday parties, non-alcoholic punch in hand, lingering hopefully under the mistletoe. Don’t be a bummer about his love of awkward holiday kissing. He worked hard on that pristine comb-over and his grandma worked even harder on that sweater!

We recommend planting this plug in our Cactus & Succulent soil.

**IMPORTANT NOTE:
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.
