Marcel, the Peperomia dahlstedtii
Meet Marcel! He can be found musing upon the necessity of reflection as he scribbles notes for his next op-ed piece. Marcel grows in a linear habit, a union of precision and protraction… reddish stems and distinctive stripes highlight an obvious awakening genius. He learns books by heart. Big books, lots of words. And if you have resolved to better yourself through literature this year, stick with Marcel, he’ll show you the way.
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
