Meet Ray! This happy guy has an infectiously radiant and warm disposition. His leaves are whorled like rays of sunshine. When it comes to joy, he is a maximalist of the first order! He’s easy-going, always ready to offer a helping hand, and we hear he’s a real hugger. He’ll probably want to compliment you on your hug style but might feel shy. So he often says nothing, but he loved that hug. It was the best hug he’s ever had. Ray is a consistently happy bean and we dig it.

We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.

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.
