Meet Rex! He’s a voracious climber with a hunger to reach the next height. He’s big enough to be impressive but not especially likely to eat you. He says he’s maybe eaten some herbivores before but we know that’s a strong maybe. Like his namesake, Rex has that iconic toothy feel to his vibe, with pearlescent patterns on jagged leaves and blood red stems…

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
