Meet Murtle. Your favorite turtle! He represents the path we take as we journey through life. Sometimes we trail, sometimes we climb, sometimes we just go in circles. Murtle is here to say, that’s alright! You do you! When you carry your home on your back, you can feel at ease wherever you are. So Murtle trails over pot edges, climbs up poles, and happily creeps along the bottom of terrariums.

We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.

**IMPORTANT NOTE:
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.
