I got this baby sent to me in the mail much sooner than planned, and she sat in my PO Box for 11 days in the dark with no water. When I discovered her early arrival, she was healthy as all get out when I unboxed her! No leaves fell off or anything! Super strong plant.

I also really enjoy how much life she’s been giving me even after only having her for a week. I’m pretty sure we already have about 7 new leaves growing strong! Such a beautiful plant that brings so much joy to any room :)
