You are buying ONE LARGE plant, with leaves about 6 - 8 inches across and about 8 inches tall. Most will have roots, but some are large cuttings with thick stems which will root easily once planted in soil. They are shipped bare root. Smaller plants in larger quantities are also available. Check the dropdown box near the order button to see options.

The larger lower leaves will be trimmed from your plant before shipping because they are very stiff and break easily, but there will be several leaves left on the top of the plant. These plants grow and multiply FAST with proper care, you'll have a lovely group in just a few weeks!

This unique plant looks like a bromeliad but is actually related to the Wandering Jew family. Beautiful in hanging baskets, this tender tropical continually produces new plants at the end of 1 to 2 foot long hanging stems - much like a spider plant does. It flowers in early spring with very fragrant white flowers on long arching spikes.

Beautiful green rubbery foliage that thrives in shade but will be streaked with purple when placed in partial sun. Hardy zone 9 and above and can be used as a groundcover. Makes a great houseplant in cooler areas.

Studied for years in Russia as a source for holistic therapies for many different ailments ranging from upset stomachs to burns and other skin ailments, to cancer. I, unfortunately, do not have any specifics on its medicinal uses.
