*Terracotta pot in photo sold separately.

Meet Ernest. This little guy is frank, determined, and steadily pursuing his purpose in life but he’s not without a sense of humor! He meticulously stacks his buttons, one on top of the next, until he almost trails out of the pot. Ernest likes to laugh at his own jokes and will even blush red at the tips if his light is bright enough! Go easy on the water as he is a true succulent.

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