        Small and Vibrant

        I knew these were going to be small, but didn't know how small. They're absolutely adorable plants and a very rich shade of green that looks great. They arrived healthy and in great condition.

        small but healthy

        Pretty small, but seems healthy. Maybe why the price was marked down.


        Not cool. I got two of these and both within days became squishy and died.
