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.

**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.
