Meet Poe! Poe has become a dhalang, after spending many months studying Wayang Kulit, an Indonesian form of shadow puppetry. Once reading an article in 2003 about how Wayang Kulit was declared a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, Poe decided he must master this art form himself. His long fingers deftly tell the stories of kings, prin- cesses, ogres, and knights. Being a traditionalist, Poe only gives his performances behind authentic cotton sheets and uses Ghee oil lamps to create the play of lights. With hands like his, some say he was born for this.

We recommend planting this plug in our Aroid potting soil.

THIS PLANT SHIPS AS A 2″ 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.

We root certain plants in sphagnum moss for greatest shipping success. When you go to repot your plant, carefully remove the growers pot and gently tease open the sphagnum and roots. If some sphagnum falls off, no worries! It can be discarded or added to your potting medium. If some stays attached to the roots, just let it be. Your roots will grow happily around it. We advise that you don’t overly mess with the roots, they don’t need to be picked clean. Questions? Message us!

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
