Meet Kaspian. Step aside Fabio, there’s a new romance novel cover model in town. His river of lustrous silver locks can be left undone in an unruly tumble or spiked up in a punk rock chic. Whether unconquered or lifted as though a silver cloud on a mountain peak, Kaspian’s leaves are anything but grizzled. “Mr. Romance,” welcome.

We recommend planting this plug in our Aroid potting soil.

**IMPORTANT NOTE:
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

Notes:

  • Grows most vigorously in a bright, warm area (direct sun can cause leaf burn).
  • Likes regular water, somewhat drought tolerant, never let the bottom of the pot sit in water! If leaves are turning yellow and falling off, it's likely over-watered.
  • Wipe leaves with a damp cloth when they become dusty.
  • Toxic to pets and people.
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
