Meet Salem. He leads ghost tours in a spectacularly haunted New England town. But since being haunted by ghostly apparitions is an unsettling experience, Salem likes to take time for himself and travel to unhaunted spots like… well we can’t think of any at the moment. Maybe Topeka? No, definitely some ghostly old farmhouses there. Anyway, Salem tells THE best scary stories that will leave you shrieking and giddy for days.

We recommend planting this plug in our regular potting soil.

**IMPORTANT NOTE:
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

Notes:

  • Grows most vigorously in a bright, warm area (direct sun can cause leaf burn).
  • Likes regular water, somewhat drought tolerant, never let the bottom of the pot sit in water! If leaves are turning yellow and falling off, it's likely over-watered.
  • Wipe leaves with a damp cloth when they become dusty.
  • Mildly toxic. The sap can cause skin irritation and rash.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
