The ruba ruba is just flourishing. I put it in a bigger pot and it's gotten bigger. I'm so excited.
Unfortunately, my package had gotten lost due to the budget cuts with USPS. For about a week I wasn't sure if the package was gonna make it. It did get delivered, and even though the box was beaten up, the plant was so well packaged and protected that it's now been a month since I've gotten it and it's growing strong.
Slow grower but now it's shooting some new pitchers
So far it's been a surprise and is happy. Return customer
