I don’t have a green thumb but it’s growing24 September 2018I ordered this plant from Elarish Tropical Exotics not know what to expect, well I must admit I don’t have a green thumb but this plant is growing beautiful. I will be placing it in the Atrium and another plant I have just ordered from Elarish and I think it will all look stunning.
