Beautiful plant

The plant that arrived was beautiful and was a replacement for one destroyed by a friend’s dog a few months ago! (The dog survived, no ill effects!) Unfortunately, the original plant was almost 20 years old, so I have quite a while til this one reaches that height. Also, the new plant developed spider mites, which I got under control. I currently have no other plants with mites and I’m hoping they didn’t originate with the new plant as I’m very impressed with Planet Desert and hope to order from them again.

Cute caudex

The plant is adorable. It looks Ike an umbrella with the small cut out leaves. It’s doing very well. I’m treating it like a bonsai, so it’s in a bonsai medium. 5 stars
