Meet Lucille! We love Lucille because she never gives up. Just give her one chance and she knows she’ll make it to the big time. Lucille shines under the bright lights! She believes she’s a star and won’t let any lack of talent stop her. She often mischievously gets her strands of plantlets entangled in various predicaments. She’s ambitious, clever, and determined… you know when she trails off the sill, mirth and mayhem are close behind! Also, great at cards. Just ask Ethel.
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.
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
