Meet Quimby! By age 55, Quimby hopes to have appeared on every national news cast that exists. What amazing feat will he accomplish to do so? Basically nothing. Quimby is a newsraider, which consists of appearing as a bystander in the background of newscasts. Very few have the resolve, planning skills, and perfect star-alignment to call this a hobby and not just a mere pipe dream. His career highlights include being caught on camera during the 2019 Groundhog broadcast, dancing right under the ball as it drops in Times Square on New Year’s Eve, and he has even been caught kissing his beer on Kiss Cam during the final game of the Stanley cup!

We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.

**IMPORTANT NOTE:
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.
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.

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!
