Samwise, the Hobbit Jade
Meet Samwise. He’s loyal, steadfast, and true to his hobbit nature he’s always down for some elevenses. He prefers a quiet and peaceful life, full of bright light and very minimal water. He’s not the tallest of plants but he knows his heart and goes by his truth “Be Brave.” Hobbits are excellent at preparing and this little jade stores water in his succulent leaves, ready for the adventure. He’ll let you know when he’s ready for a refill by wrinkling his leaves a bit. Long-lived and symbols of luck, jade plants are a wonderful addition to a home!
We recommend planting this plug in our Cactus & Succulent 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.
