SKU: SOB.2128 Category:

Meet Lettie! She’s one of the “string of succulents” gaining so much popularity right now, but she’ll have you know she’s anything but basic. She loves art, strong coffee and has been totally obsessed with Pop Art ever since she finished studying in Paris. Favorite painting? Thiebaud’s lushly iconic “Bananas” of course. Lettie just wants bright light, minimal watering, and she’ll transcend beyond objecthood into a study on form, color, volume and shadows, challenging traditionally perceived notions of representation and abstraction. We aren’t kidding. Those are art school words.

We recommend planting this plug in our Cactus & Succulent 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.

**Winter Shipping** Our plants are considered tropical and cannot survive for extended periods in temperatures below 40° F. Even if it’s warm where you are, remember that these plants are shipping from Northern Colorado! We require that you order a heat pack to add to your shipping box, this will help protect your plants from cold and frost. We will activate it as soon as it ships and it heats for 72+hours. Please understand we will not be responsible at all for damage due to cold weather if a heat pack is not added to the order. So, show your plants some love and get them a warming buddy!
(One heat pack is sufficient for a whole order)
