Meet Ember. After studying Murano’s glassblowers in fifth grade, she knew she had found her passion. Now, decades later, Ember is a renowned glass artist, creating on a grand scale. Speaking of scales, she just installed a glass dragon chandelier in the Sydney Opera House. Using copper to tint her glass, Ember fashioned thousands of tiny scales so the dragon appears to awaken and ripple when the room is lit. Who knows where a spark of inspiration will land in a child…
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!
Winter shipping has begun… as a heartfelt thank you, this year we are including free winter protection (thermal insulation liners every time and heat packs as necessary) in each box. *Free winter protection only available through website orders, not our Etsy shop
