Elizabeth, the Senecio rowleyanus (String of Pearls)

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Meet Elizabeth With her timeless elegance like heirloom pearls around the neck, she never goes out of style! She is simple to care for but her simple style is anything but average. She grows best in bright indoor light, and a dash of diluted houseplant fertilizer every month keeps her fashion game strong! In a take-charge way, she'll let you know when it's time to water again by deflating her pearls a bit and looking less than succulent. So pay attention because overwatering is the quickest way to say goodbye to this beauty.

Lilah, the Tradescantia Fluminensis (Lilac Wandering Jew)

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Meet Lilah. This cute spunky girl can't wait to spread her cascading rainbow of colorful foliage into your living space. Looking like little pink bows, her fleshy leaves are a mixture of white, green, pink, and mauve stripes and blotches. Treat her right and she may even reward you with her small white flowers. Never stick Lilah in a dark corner, or she will show her dislike of the area by losing her beautiful colors. She will look the prettiest with lots of bright indirect light every day. Lilah loves a good hair cut, and asks that you keep her maintained. Her trailing tendrils have a tendency to get leggy, so pruning them becomes a must if you want to maintain a healthy appearance. Lilah is a plant that you need to know: low maintenance, fun, and easy!

Semi-succulent, so go easy on the water and give her bright light (but not direct sun).

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Meet Hope. She would like everyone to know that they CAN be successful plant parents! Put her in a spot with bright indirect light and watch her go with the flow. Hope is considered semi-succulent so you can let her dry out between soakings.

Not a desert gal, Effie prefers filtered gentle light and will get a sunburn in direct sunlight.
