This is such a novelty item that I had to have it! The plant is called ' Dead Plant' and it lives up to it's name! At the ends of the branches, if you look hard enough, you can see tiny yellow 'flowers'. Makes me wonder what kind of botanist noticed a dead looking plant and discovered it was alive? Blows my little mortal mind! What a rare find! Thank you, Cactus Market, for this offering. Thank you for beautiful packaging, fast delivery and especially all the directions and info. You exceeded all expectations!
