Meet Herbie! This little beetle will be the talk of the sill! A true love bug, he’s cheerful, energetic and his tank runs best when filled with adoration. With a toot toot and a beep beep, Herbie ventures out of his pot with a smile to greet each day. It doesn’t matter if you like to sing at the top of your lungs while stopped at traffic lights, or if you’re constantly readjusting your rear view mirror… Herbie loves you.
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! We diligently check your location’s lows before shipping and will add an insulated liner and heat pack if temps will be below 40 anywhere along the route. This is included in the shipping cost and requires no further action on your part other than placing an order.
- As the plant is semi-succulent, allow it to dry out moderately between waterings.
- Grows best in medium to bright indirect light.
- Trim the ends to create a bushier habit.
