Meet Josie! Her family calls her the “Thunder Queen” but not for reasons you’d expect. She’s actually an atmospheric scientist working for the Japanese Lightning Detection Network. It’s a fascinating job and she’s a master at staying dry as she sails the coasts of Hokkaido gathering data points. Keep an eye out for Josie at the next big atmospheric science conference, she’s tiny but mighty.

We recommend planting this plug in our Cactus & Succulent 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.

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
