Meet Leopold. Dazzling you with the dramatic flair of a Broadway star, his natural charisma can’t help but grab the limelight. He might seem like he’s bragging but truly, he’s just sharing. Maybe the line between admiration and worship blurs from time to time but Leopold wants to be recognized for his authentic self. He thinks you’re pretty neat too, honest!

We recommend planting this plug in our regular 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.
  • Mildly toxic. The sap can cause skin irritation and rash.
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
