Meet Newt! One of the famous ‘mudlarkers’ prowling the London shores of the Thames, he scavenges in river mud for historical treasures. His extraordinary vision turns up objects that had sunk to the river’s depths in centuries past. His favorite finds on the foreshore are bright beads, clay pipes, and tiny buttons. One the tidal muck is rinsed off, the colors shine as they did in Victorian days!

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.
