nice plant August 26, 2017
Reviewer: Tim from College Station, Texas United States  
This plant really likes the shade of the taller plants in our hot Texas sun.  It is doing well here though.  Just took it a bit to get started.

My plant already has new leaves. The soil looks great, for poor non nutritional soil. Packaging was perfect.
