They are darling little guys; anxious to see how they develop.


Some assembly required, and oh so delicate

This plant is an awesome choice. Beautiful colors, thick, bulbous leaves, and really quite cute to look at. Truly a great addition to your collection. BUT know that this is shipped bare root and wrapped in bubble wrap. The plant is very delicate, so be careful and take it slow with cutting open the bubble wrap. The plant may look a little sad when you first see it. In fact, some may consider it terrible looking. That's okay and expected! Just plant it—I assure you it will recover from the trip. I simply stuck the bare root into some fresh moist soil, and added some water. It's been doing well on my balcony (outside, good sunlight) ever since. Seems to be part of the slow-growing succulents, and I'm okay with that. This looks a lot cuter as a small plant than blown up all big.


Few leaves

Very cute plant and it has started to turn pink now that it is getting regular light! I am giving three stars because the plant came with significantly fewer leaves compared to the ones pictured. Some of the leaves also died within the first day, likely because of stress from shipping.

Color not what I expected

The color wasn’t what I expected but I’m sure with more sun it’ll be pink. The plants did come in great condition
