Meet Pubert. He might be a bit of a baby but Pubert Addams has got pluck. He does stand apart from other infants, thanks to his signature mustache, and his ability to shoot flaming arrows on occasion. Just give him a bit of light and some water and he will be good to go! Strangely developed for his age, Pubert’s tendrils resemble a fine mustache on his baby face. Calmed since birth by his stuffed bear and knife mobile, this little buddy ain’t scared of knives. Feel free to give him a little trim as needed.

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
